Welcome from current president Mary McHatton to the website of The Rotary Club of Hemel Hempstead.
Blood Pressure Awareness
In collaboration with the Stroke Association, and the with the help of trained volunteers, once a year we encourage people to have their blood pressure checked. The aim is to reduce the incidence of strokes among people of all ages.details
Community service is one of the Avenues of Service which encourages Rotarians to offer service to their communities. Every Rotary club and every Rotarian assumes a responsibility to find ways to improve the quality of life for those in their communitiesdetails
Youth Service recognizes the importance of empowering youth and young professionals through leadership development programs such as Rotaract, Interact, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Rotary Youth Exchange.details
Teams of three are challenged to speak in public. Professional judges assess the skill of the teams. In 2018, a Team from Astley Cooper School reached the District Finals.details
Every June Rotarians drive children and their helpers from a local special needs school to Whipsnade Wildlife Park for a day of fun.details
Welcome: from Club president Mary McHatton
We're for Communities
The reason we say this is because we often get asked "What does Rotary do?" We are a diverse group of people, from all walks of life, who action local, national and international projects. The Rotary movement is big, with 34,282 clubs and over 1.2 million members worldwide. As you can imagine there are a lot of different projects going on.
Our Hemel Hempstead Club is involved in activities which concentrate largely on our local communities. These include young people, the elderly, and those who are disadvantaged. We raise funds in a variety of ways. We also help International communities when disaster strikes or where we think we can improve living conditions.
2016 saw the arrival of our Santa Sleigh, which has been made available to a range of community groups. In December 2017 our Santa activities raised over £13 000 to be distributed to local charities. For more detail, click here.
Do you want to know more about what we do? Do come along. Find out about membership and our Friends for Rotary scheme. There are many ways in our club you can get involved to be for your community.
