We are people of action in District 1100, making a difference in our communities in Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Bristol, Swindon and parts of Monmouthshire, Somerset and Wiltshire.

Rotary is one of the world’s largest and most successful global membership and humanitarian service organisations, with 1.2 million members in over 200 countries.  It was founded over 100 years ago as a business networking club and this is still part of Rotary life.  Ethical practice is encouraged and, with members drawn from all walks of life, the opportunities to network are endless.  

Our very lively District has 65 active clubs and over 1,800 members, all serving their communities and having great fun at the same time. We pride ourselves on having a diverse membership: men and women, young and senior, from different walks of life, nationalities and faiths all serving together and with common values.  

So, if you are looking to have fun meeting new people and getting actively involved in your local community, there is an increasingly wide variety of options. These can include attending traditional club meetings to enjoy friendship, listening to stimulating speakers on topical issues and assisting local or international humanitarian projects.   

Interested in finding out more? 

New members are always welcome and, with the unique character of each Rotary club, the opportunities are limitless.  Our clubs meet either for breakfast, lunch, in the evening or even at the weekend.  So what are you waiting for?  Start your Rotary journey today by contacting your local Rotary club.
