Welcome to the Rotary Club of Yelverton - We are “People Of Action” serving your community. Find out who we are, what we do and how you can help us do good work by exploring this site.
We fund and run the Yelverton Memory Cafe that meets fortnightly at Brier Tor Community Rooms fortnightly. This is a free social drop-in group for carers or sufferers of dementia and memory loss to enjoy a social time with people in similar situation.details

We organise and participate in a wide range of events to enhance local life and fundraise for worthy causes.details
We do a lot of fundraising and do tremendous work in the community making peoples' lives better, at home and internationally. But perhaps most importantly, WE HAVE FUN while we are doing it.details
We raise money locally and distribute it to local good causes, international charities and to Rotary Foundation, Rotary's own charity that funds service projects close to home and around the world.details
Yelverton is almost at the centre of the rural area we cover, which includes the villages of Bere Alston, Bere Ferrers, Buckland Monachorum, Crapstone, Dousland, Hexworthy, Horrabridge, Meavy, Milton Combe, Postbridge, Princetown, Sheepstor, Walkhampton, Yelverton and all the interspersed smaller hamlets. We also have members from Tavistock and Mary Tavy.
Statistically we are about two thirds men and one third ladies, with ages spanning over four decades and from a wide range of professions, businesses and organisations. We all share a common interest in helping others while having fun.
We meet on Wednesday evenings to enjoy each other’s company and to plan our future events and charitable donations. About once or twice per month we have external speakers to talk about topics of interest. On the fifth Wednesday of any month we usually have an away day, which could be one of a range of activities.
We meet in the bar between 1900 - 1930 at the Moorland Gardens Hotel and move through to a private room for a one course table d’hôtel meal followed by tea and coffee. The drinks and meal are entirely optional and some members just come along for the discussions afterwards. It’s the evening so we like to keep things fairly relaxed and informal, but we are very effective at what we do. There is a business meeting once per month when we do a roundup of all ongoing and planned activities, but current issues can be discussed at any meeting. Guests and prospective members are always welcome.
We run or are involved in a wide range of activities and events in the local community. Have a look around our website.
