About us


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 activities until we receive advice from District 1210 to restart. There will therefore be no meetings or events while these restrictions apply.

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

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.
