We meet for lunch every Tuesday at Little Channels, Pratts Farm Lane West, Little Waltham, CM3 3PR, for a programme of talks, presentations and discussions.
Our programme helps keep us aware of ways in which we might be of use.
Raising funds to support various local, national and international causes is an important part of our work.
Mildmay Matters is our online newsletter, which reports our activities.
We welcome new members but if you do not have time to take up full membership, you might prefer to become a Friend of Rotary. In this way you can still enjoy some social events, help with charity projects or just get a taste of what Rotary is all about.
Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland (known as RGBI) has 45,000 members and our club is just one of 1,700 clubs nationally.
Rotary International has 1.2 million members in over 200 countries.
For more than 30 years Rotary has led the campaign to rid the world of polio, protecting 2.5 billion children from paralysis and death through vaccination programmes.
Rotary in Great Britain and Northern Ireland's Purple4Polio activities provide communities with ideas and opportunities to get involved in helping Rotary and our partners to End Polio Now and forever.
We planted 30,000 purple crocuses, in partnership with other clubs, at RHS Hyde Hall as part of the Purple4Polio campaign. You can see here how they looked in 2021. The purple crocus is a symbol of Rotary's worldwide campaign to end polio, with its colour representing the purple dye used to mark the little finger of a child who has been immunised.
Find out more about Purple4Polio .
We have also planted purple crocuses in Viaduct Meadows, Chelmsford Central Park.
If you were to ask what activity do Rotarians enjoy the most, then it could be answered in two words that encapsulate the Rotary themes of fellowship, service in the community, caring for the environment, enjoying the open air, great banter and shared tea or coffee post-activity. You may have guessed the activity to be LITTER PICKING - always leaving the community a better place in which to live.
Thank You to all who ran/walked in the Virtual Races.

From 2010 we sent recycled computers from Essex schools and businesses to Tanzania, Africa. Following the successful shipment of our first three containers, each with 200 computers, printers and other equipment, we completed the fourth and final packing of a ship's container with over 300 large boxes of computer equipment. Very many thanks to everyone who donated. We enjoyed tracking each ship's progress to Dar es Salaam and continue to hear of the success of the project with the computer equipment being put to good use by teachers and school students.
