Our Home Town  Bala - North Wales

The market town of Bala is located at the head of Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) - the area around Bala, known as Penllyn, is famous for its lakes and mountain scenery and is ideal for a holiday destination.

For more information see the official Bala Tourism website www.visitbala.org

If you are a Rotarian visiting the area, you will be made very welcome at one of our meetings, look at the Club Meeting Programme or you may contact Secretary Adrian Murray (01678-520344) to get the latest information.

The Bala Rotary Club's Wishing Well story


Our Rotary Wishing Well was delivered to us here in beautiful Wales by way of a chain of Rotary clubs handing the well along the route from Exmouth until it arrived here in Bala.

The Bala Challenge Walks

Bala & Penllyn Rotary Club wishes to acknowledge the valuable contribution made to the Bala Challenge by our Sponsors and Supporters, we are very grateful.

The 13th Bala Challenge Charity Walk was held on Saturday 6th May 2017 and it was another success with over 260 walkers testing themselves on a variety of routes including the gruelling 20 miles with over 4,000 ft of ascent. The walkers enjoyed home-made cakes and drinks at the check-points. 

We are happy to announce that the 2017 Bala Challenge Charity Walks have been a great success.

Please go to the Bala Challenge website site for more information.
