Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Witney

One of 1845 clubs and 57000 members in the UK and Ireland. We support thAshley Farmer, President 2015-16e local community, enjoying the fun and fellowship that being a Rotarian offers.
Our Club is 60 years old and has over 40 members. We meet at
the Blue Boar in the market square and in addition to our traditional Monday lunchtime meetings we now have an Evening Meeting twice a month.
In addition Woodgreen School and Carterton Community College have Interact Clubs for 12 to 18 year olds, encouraging young people to experience service to the community
We organise a range of free events for the community and more details of these and our meetings are on this website, but especially look out for these: 

For families- Witney Carnival on July 11,  Switching on of the Christmas Lights on Nov 27 and community events alongside the Beer Festival and Pooh Sticks Championships

For youngsters - Youth Speaks competitions in November and January, Schools in Bloom Competition, Carnival Poster and Programme cover competitions and a potential Technology Competition in June

For young people with special needs - Kids day out to Legoland, visits to Cotswold Wildlife Park and Crocodile World

For the older citizens - Concerts at Christmas and in the spring, Electric Blanket Safety Testing and a potential social event between Christmas and New Year

For International support - We do not forget those overseas in need of help. Apart from ongoing support to end Polio we contribute to one off overseas projects providing community facilities and support. We respond immediately to natural disasters, collecting £2700 over the last year for Ebola, Vanuatu and Nepal.

We raise funds throughout the year to pay for this support to the community at events which include the Witney Carnival, Wychwood Forest Fair, our annual Dinner Dance in November and Street Collections in December and April.
As President I have the opportunity to select organisations for special support and this year these will be the Community Hospital in Witney, whom we all depend upon for help usually at times of crisis, and  Yellow Submarine, a local charity who support young people with special needs.
The Community Hospital needs to replace its specialist patient transport vehicle and we are very pleased to help with this major project, as well as some much needed but smaller cost items.
To help both organisations additional fund raising events will be organised, including an Eve of St Valentine’s Day Charity Dinner at Witney Lakes Resort on 13th Feb 2016.
