The Rotary Club of Bridgnorth received its charter in 1943. The Club is part of a world wide organisation and members are welcome at other Clubs in the UK and around the world.
Due to the ongoing concerns about the COVID 19 virus we have suspended all face to face meetings until we receive advice from District 1210 to restart. There will therefore be no meetings and only events within strict Covid 19 regulations.
The Club 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 from our events go to local, national and international charities.
The President for 2020/1 is Amanda Johnson
Amanda is our first Lady President and it is hoped that further ladies will join the Club. Increasing membership is the key to increasing our projects and charity support for local , national and international good causes. Amanda's team includes Vice President David Chantry and Second Vice President Dermott Creece.
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.
Currently we have asked members to collect for the food bank, intend to deliver our collection on 7th December
