Join Rotary and make a world of difference to your own community, to the lives of those less fortunate around the world, to your fellow club members - like-minded men and women of all ages - and, just as important, to yourself! The projects Rotarians get involved in are incredibly fulfilling, worthwhile and rewarding - and there's plenty of fun.

Serving the Community
Santa with the Brine Leas School Choir at Sainsburys bringing Christmas Cheer to it's customers.
Santa was visited by childen in his grotto at the Nantwich Bookshop again this year and a total of £936 was raised for the 'End Polio Now' Campaign.
Thanks are due to Steve Lawson for providing the facilities once again.
The Rotary Float toured the streets of Nantwich and Sainburys Supermarket during December and the collections raised £4387, which will be distributed to local charities.
The Rotary Club of Nantwich was chartered on 1934 and currently (March 2014) has 41 members plus 2 honorary members.
It is one of three clubs in the old Borough of Crewe and Nantwich. The others are RC Crewe (1932), and RC Crewe and Nantwich Weaver (1985) .
The club is one of 41 in Rotary International District 1050 which covers South Manchester and Cheshire and includes enclaves within Derbyshire and Staffordshire. The 'Nantwich' club is a 'lunch time' Club meeting on a Tuesday and with the 'Weaver Club' covers the southern extremity of the district, bordering North Shropshire.
