Welcome to the Rotary Club of Chard which was chartered on 7th November 1945 by a group of local businessmen who felt a need to provide a way of giving service to the local community in the aftermath of the war.

The Club currently has 20 members of varying ages and from a wide variety of backgrounds. 

Unfortunately, the current coronavirus pandemic means that we have had to suspend our normal meetings until further notice. 

So how are we managing to maintain contact with members.

 Well, like many Clubs and organisations we have embraced the services of 'Zoom' and are now holding regular meetings from our own homes. 

But of course the situation means that we are unable to continue with our normal community and fund raising activities and this of course worries members, although we do have an involvement with the local Covid19 group which is supporting local people. 

In an attempt to support our local community, members have taken the decision to donate the money that would normally be spent on our normal meetings to the Club's Charity Fund and distribute this to local organisations. 

The first distribution of this has just been paid out and the following local groups have benefitted to the sum of £350 per group. 

The Lord's Larder - providing food parcels for those in need.

 The Royal British Legion for the work they are doing with the Covid19 group in collecting and distributing prescriptions.

 Age UK for their work keeping in contact with older members of the community. 

We would like to thank them all for their dedication and hard work and wish them all the best in these difficult times.
