About us

The Rotary Club of Taunton is a lively, friendly and active Club. We are proud of our 95-year history of fellowship and service to the Taunton area and worldwide community and we welcome new members who wish to contribute to our aim which is simply, 'Service above Self'.


Our Club plays an important part in the lifeblood of our community and organises many fundraising events to support local and international charities. We organise activities that help young people achieve their aspirations and provide financial assistance to those in need.
