About us

Casterbridge at District Conference Bristol   2014


There are 1.2 million Rotarians in the world and we are all working to uphold the principle of our simple motto.

Whether we are helping in a worldwide campaign to eradicate polio or providing Shelter Boxes following a disaster or, locally, in our own town of Dorchester, supporting a charitable group (or planting bulbs by the roadside!), our aim is to make life better whenever we can, and enjoy ourselves while we do it.

Would YOU like to help us? 

Becoming a Rotarian is the start of a different way of life with a new circle of friends and ambitions.

Rotarians come from all walks of life but they will have normally become leaders in their chosen field so that their expertise and experience will benefit the club and help it to achieve its aims.

If you have not already done so check out some of the links to get more details of our most recent activities and projects.

 Do come and meet us socially or help at our next event to get to know us and find out more about what being a Rotarian means.

We will look forward to hearing from you.

 Les Fry 

President 2017-18
