About us

       

ROTARY - PEOPLE OF ACTION


Three months into our new Rotary Year and the club have been very active supporting local and International projects.

We were sad to see the Minehead BID lose it's application for another 5 year programme as there were a number of good projects that they provided financial support for.  In their place we have got behind the Minehead Town Council and the Minehead Coast Development Trust. Both of these organisations can help improve the Town and the sense of community we are all looking for.  Two such projects were the Minehead Eat Festival and the Minehead Bay Festival. Our Rotary Club fully supported both events and are looking forward to helping next year. 

This years rotary theme is "Create Hope in the World" and the club aims to use this theme to help our communities in and around Minehead. For the past year we have been providing monthly food donations to the local Food Cupboard and these will continue.  We have just recently linked up with the Hope Charity to see if we can help them to reduce the number of rough sleepers in our town.  We will be trying to work more closely with the local Lions club to see if together we can make a bigger difference, so watch this space.

On the International front we will continue to support our Ukrainian families in any way we can and we have recently linked up with a club in Zambia to work on a project improving the fight against period poverty. All of these projects require funding and our members are quick to turn out for all fundraising events. 

Rotary is always in need of more volunteers to help us provide and support the many projects we run. Our club is open to all and we have an active social side and will welcome any new individuals that come along to our fortnightly meetings on a Monday evening at the Northfield Hotel, Minehead.

By joining the 1.4 million Rotarians around the world you really can make a difference to so many lives. Why not give it a try.

John Baker

President.
