Welcome to F&D Rotary
by Mike Gay, Andy Fisher & Phil Simon

Fishponds & Downend Rotary is a small (but perfectly formed), robust, friendly and very sociable club. We are dedicated to raising money for charity and good causes, which we achieve in various ways, by fundraising at events, street collections and by having a presence at public events like fetes and shows.

Our Club Diary can be viewed here.

For the second time in our 55 year history we have Joint Presidents who will share the responsibility of leading the Club.  Long-time members Dave Baker and Phil Simon have nominated Little Hearts Matter and The Great Western Air Ambulance as their main Presidential charities.

F&D and Our Local Communities

F&D (Fishponds & Downend) Rotary is a local community driven organisation running events in our local communities, supporting charities and good causes in our local communities, providing service in our local communities, supported by people in our local communities,  based in the centre of our local communities, and drawing our membership from our local communities.

Events in the near future

As well as our normal meetings we have a number of social and fund raising events over the next few weeks.  We are running a stall selling second hand paperbook novels and games, plus a Bottle Raffle at the Frenchay Flower Show on the 14th July.  On the community front we are to present a free copy of the Usborne Dictionary 4 Life to every school leaver at Christchurch Juniors and the Tynings School next week.

Recently happened

The year is underway with our first meetings, plant stall at the Lyde Green Summer Sizzler, and a Boules Match vs our Rotary colleagues at Kingswood.
