Rotary in the Local Community

The Rotary Club of Blandford is active in the local community giving support to charities and many other organisations.  The club donated to the people of Blandford two large benches now situated in Angus Wood and have you seen the four 'planters' presented to the town in celebration of Rotary's 100th and Blandford's 400th anniversary.

More about the Club and Rotary

The Rotary Club of Blandford is a friendly dual gender club founded in 1945.

We are part of Rotary International the world's largest service organisation for business and professional people.

The club currently has 35 members who live or work in the Blandford area and meet each Monday for lunch at the Crown Hotel Blandford. If you are a Rotarian visiting the area, you will be made most welcome to one of our meetings - check the programme for further details.

A typical lunchtime meeting lasts just over an hour when we conduct any club business or listen to a guest speaker giving their thoughts on a topic of local, national or international interest.

If you would like to join us then click on the contact button at the top of the page. 

 If you would like to get involved but simply cant afford the time then why not find out about the Rotary Satellite Group? This is a group of people who join Rotary because they want to contribute to the community but can't commit to a weekly meeting.
