Date for your diary - Summer Fayre and Duck Race 30th June 2018

 

WERC was founded in 1931 and celebrated its 85th anniversary in 2016.

We have been delighted to welcome visitors and their partners from all parts of this country and the rest of the world, and looks forward to welcoming many more in the future!

The Rotary Club of Windsor and Eton (WERC) has been established for 86 years. It is a lunchtime Club (Mondays – see below)) and has 33 members. It is part of the worldwide Rotary organisation and is a ‘Service Club’ which it exists to give service in the Community. If you ask any of the members why they joined the most common response is that they feel they want to give something back to the community in which they live and/or work.

The Rotary year runs from the 1st July to 30th June the following year, and is presided over by a different President for that term each year, and runs a programme of events which are both community minded and social.

We feel enormously privileged to work in Windsor and Eton in the shadow of both Eton College Windsor Castle, and count amongst our honorary members some members of the Royal family and the Constable of the Castle all of whom we see from time to time at our meetings.

WERC has a reputation for raising money in the Windsor and Eton area and is thought of by the residents of the two towns as a safe pair of hands when it comes to organising community and fundraising events, from Golf days at one end of the spectrum to huge spectacles such as the Jaguar festival which took place in June this year.
