We always welcome enquiries about membership. Our membership philosophy is detailed here.
The Rotary Club of Sowerby Bridge
The club has over 30 members. We are always looking to expand our numbers as this increases our effectiveness as well as our experiences. You may feel that this could be of interest to you?
So what can Rotary offer you?
- Weekly meetings, talks over a 2 course dinner + coffee
- Networking with others, from different backgrounds
- An active social programme for all members, friends and families
- An opportunity to contribute to local, national and international causes as a member of the largest private charity in the world.
- Fellowship with other likeminded individuals
- Personal development
Who can become a Rotarian?
- Rotary is open to anyone (working or retired).
- Female or male.
- From any culture, political or religious persuasion.
If you are interested please come along to a meeting, there is NO obligation.
Contact Ken Forsyth or Anne Sutcliffe on 07834 958034 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org ccvv and we will arrange for you come and visit. Feel free to contact me a chat about Rotary, or to meet to chat about it over coffee if a meeting seems daunting.
Below is a quote from a recent email sent to our club by a visitor:
"I had never had any involvement with the Rotary before and attended my first meeting. I found a warm and friendly group of members who were clearly passionate about this wonderful organisation. In a cynical world it was fantastic to see people who clearly adopt their philosophy of "service before self". I will definitely be attending again and would encourage those people like me who knew nothing of the Rotary, to make contact".
We always welcome visitors, please get in contact if you would like to visit and we will be happy to introduce you to our club and the workings of Rotary.
We now have a Corporate member in Tesco Sowerby Bridge.
Each business is the member and can have up to 3 designees to send to meetings. The business will have one club vote on matters which are open to a club vote and one of the designees will be nominated as the voter.
We are also setting up a Satellite club, see the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Satellite-Club-of-the-Rotary-Club-of-Sowerby-Bridge-1772470666376480/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel
