Sir Gary Verity and Lady Ann, with Club President, Rotarian Chris Eyes.

Sir Gary was presented with a Paul Harris Fellowship at the Rotary District 1040 Annual Conference in Scarborough in October.

Two Ripon Rotary Club members namely Colin Green and Brian Philpot proposed Sir Gary for the award in recognition of his efforts in bringing the Tour de France to Yorkshire in 2014.


Well, you have got this far so please keep reading....  even better why not come and have a look at us?  We are a group of friendly individuals whose aim is to make a difference in our community of Ripon and wider afield through the humanitarian projects we support.  We are led by a wonderful, although modest President... if I don’t say it no one else will!

Let’s be honest it would be great to recruit younger men and women to join our band of volunteers, but age isn’t the important factor, a willingness to get involved is and with your input we could achieve even more.  If you are interested in learning about us and you have skills to further enhance our work please do make contact via the “contact us” tab.  If you feel you don’t currently have the time, our previous president introduced “friends of rotary” which can give you a taste of what we do without making a regular commitment.

So what are my plans for this rotary year?  Well, my first objective is to enjoy it, we all give our time freely so let’s make it fun whilst making a positive difference to people’s lives.  On that note I think I have written enough!   Want to know more?   Then come along, the details of our meetings are alongside.....
