About us



   
 

Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Westbury.


At the moment all physical meetings are cancelled due to thje Covid-19 crisis.

The Rotary Club of Westbury still hold weekly virtual meeting using the Zoom website.

We meet every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month in the bar of the Chalford House Hotel, Westbury at 6:30 p.m. before sitting down to a light dinner at 7:00 p.m. During the meeting we enjoy the fellowship of the members and guests, and plan the various events and projects which we get involved in. For other weeks, please contact the President for details

The club has a reputation for being open and friendly, and we welcome visitors and prospective new members at any time. However, it does help to keep the hotel happy if we can let them know how many to expect for dinner, so would appreciate some notice. (It will also make sure that we can meet you properly or let you know if we decide to do something else that week!).

Please have a look at the links to see our programme and what has been going on.

This website is being constantly updated with our activities so please visit regularly  for new data.

Rotary and its Objectives

The Object of Rotary
is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

First - The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

Second - High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

Third - The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;

Fourth - The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.




Rotary 4 Way Test
was devised by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor in 1932 and it was adopted by Rotary in 1943. It has been translated into more than a hundred languages and widely published.
The test asks the following questions: Of the things we think, say and do:

Is it the Truth
Is it Fair to all concerned
Will it build Goodwill and Better Relationships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?

Diversity and Rotary
Rotary International recognises the value of diversity within individual clubs. Rotary encourages clubs to assess those in their communities who are eligible for membership, under existing membership guidelines, and to endeavour to include appropriate range of individuals in their clubs. A club that reflects its community with regard to professional and business classifications, gender,age, religion, and ethnicity is a club with the key to its future.
Did You Know
Rotary International is an association of Rotary clubs worldwide. It's made up of more than 32,000 Rotary clubs in over 200 countries. The members of these autonomous clubs are called Rotarians, and they form a global network of 1.2 million business and professional leaders, all volunteering their time and talents to serve their local communities and around the world.

Rotary is far reaching. In Great Britain and Ireland alone, there are more than 55,000 Rotarians in 1,840 clubs.
