About us

The Rotary Club of Bridgnorth received its charter in 1943 so our 78th President for 2021-22 is                                                             Reverend David Chantrey 

The Club is part of a world wide organisation and members are welcome at other Clubs in the UK and around the world. 

We continued to make donations during Covid 19,  From July 2020 to May 2021 we have donated £3593 to good causes.

                               Face to face meetings restarted  from Wednesday 21st July 2021

The Club normally meets on Wednedays at The Down Inn on the Bridgnorth Ludlow Road. The meetings are for Business & fellowship,  they include committee activities , some after dinner speakers and other social activities. We take part in a range of competitive events with other clubs and also initiate our own.   We hold a number of annual events  to raise money for charity these are Classic Car Run, Fashion Show, Golf Day, Steps Walk, Tree of Thought and 100 club. Proceeds go to local, national and international good causes and charities

 Increasing Club membership is the  key to increasing our projects and charity support for local , national and international good causes. David's team includes Vice President Dermott Creece  and Second Vice President Amanda Johnson.

We are always interested in new members. Prospective members should be adult persons of good character from all walks of life, with a good professional or community reputation and agree to uphold high moral and ethical standards in their personal, business and community life.
