Chelmsford Rotary Club is the original club in the city formed way back in 1927. Since this time members have brought a richness of life to many people in the community and moved on with a broader involvement to incorporate numerous local and international projects. Rotarians offer their services in many different ways. If you have recently moved to the Chelmsford district and wish to put something back into the community, we can offer you an enjoyable and stimulating way of doing so.

The Club has a major international project ongoing with Shree Shiksya Bikas, Primary School (“SSBSS”), situated in a very remote and rural part of Eastern Nepal, and Rotary Clubs in the area. For the next five years we are also financially helping Chelmsford Community Transport, which provides transport for those who might be unable to access the usual public transport. These are but two of the many ways that Rotary in Chelmsford has moved forward in serving others.

You would be very welcome to come along to a meeting to hear more of what Rotary does and how you could be involved.  Just phone or complete the contact form on this website.
