Come along to one of our meetings to discover how we help people in the local community and on national and international projects.
Carrying out these activities develops both friendship, understanding and a sense of community, as well as beng fun.

WHAT DO WE DO
Meanwhile, you may be wondering...What exactly do we do at the Rotary Club of Sowerby Bridge?
We organise events such as a Classic Bike Show, we marshall at local community events such as the Rushbearing Festival and the Navigation Walk, we raise funds to contribute to the global eradication of polio programme, we support the local Rotakids group in Luddenden, as well as help Ryburn Valley High with their Falcoln project.
There are plenty of opportunities to find out more. Either telephone or e-mail our President- Anne Sutcliffe (firstname.lastname@example.org") or the Secretary, Jeffrey Fisher or come to one of our meetings or talk to us at one of the events we either organise or support.
By meeting the members in our club who are responsible for international projects, community and youth projects, you will be surprised how effective a small but enthusiastic group of people can be.
We have built on the bumper years of 2014 to 2015, and following on from inducting David Fawcett of Happy Days, we have 2 new members - Melanie Parojcic as well as Dipin Sood.
