Rotary in the Thames Valley - a New Dimension

Thames Valley e-Rotary is a new venture, introducing a different set of opportunities for those wishing to support their local communities but unable to participate regularly though pressures of work, family or travel. This new group operates online with regular discussions,interesting speakers and suport for local needs.

Maybe your life consists of the daily commute, long days working to enhance your career prospects and the remaining time spent with the family? Yet, deep down, you'd like the opportuntiy to make a positive contribution to your community, if so talk with us.  Our aim is to offer Rotary 24/7 so you can keep informed of the latest developments and projects and offer what time you can to participate in activities undertaken by ordinary people just like yourself.

Thames Valley e-Rotary primarily serves an area frm the Cotswolds to the London outskirts, Rotary District 1090, our invitation also extends to those elsewhere who have the Thames Valley at heart.

Rotary is remowned for opening doors and 'making a difference', allowing each of us to broaden our personal experience, enjoy the cmpany of like-minded people and at the same time offer hope and improvement to many.

If you’d like to connect online with others who share similar thoughts and who are prepared to take action and make a difference,  get in touch and let us explain our view of Rotary and how it’s touched our lives.

Drop an email to Anne Cooper at Thames Valley e-Rotary and we’ll get back to you.

Thames Valley e-Rotary - a new group working for communities across the Thames Valley.
