About us

Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Guildford District

We are a group of men and women  of all ages and experiences from Guildford and its surrounding area who, together, use our time, talents and knowledge to try to help Guildford and the wider world be a better place.

During the current coronavirus problems we have sadly had to take the decision to postpone our weekly meetings for the time being.  However we are now able to meet face to face again and will be meeting over breakfast at 8.00am every 2nd Wednesday of each month at The Bridge (formerly the YMCA) in Bridge Street Guildford and at varied times and venues or zoom every 4th Wednesday.

If you are interested in more information about Rotary please use this website to write to us and we will respond straight away. Alternatively you might like to join one of our meetings; you will be most welcome. Please contact our secretary Peter O'Keefe - 01483 572894.

The following gives a little more detail about us and what we do so do please scroll down to the end.

We raise funds, make friends and try, through our efforts, to help those less fortunate whilst having fun and enjoying each other's company

Rotary is all about Communities. These are local, national and international. Wherever there is a need Rotary is there, whether it is a disaster such as a Tsunami or an awful storm in the Philippines, or an earthquake in Nepal,Rotary will be there in some form to help.

Locally we help a large number of Charities and individuals who are in great need. How is this all achieved? Quite often we fundraise.The idea that Rotary is all about collecting in the High Street or outside a supermarket is however far from the truth. We do do this but it is a very small part of our fundraising efforts. 

The following are some of the things that we have regularly done:-



ANNUAL CHARITY WALK

For nearly 30 consecutive years we have run a Charity Walk from Shalford Park where the walkers raise money for their favourite charity at no cost to them.

SADLY BOTH THE LAST TWO YEAR'S EVENTS HAD TO BE CANCELLED BECAUSE OF COVID 19

HOPEFULLY WE WILL BE ABLE TO HOLD THE WALK AGAIN IN 2022 AND HAVE PROVISIONALLY BOOKED SHALFORD PARK FOR  SUNDAY 15TH MAY  - PLEASE PUT THE DATE IN YOUR DIARY. 

IF YOU HAVEN' T BEEN ON THE WALK BEFORE HAVE A LOOK AT THE DETAILS PAGES WITH THE ASSOCIATED PICTURES FOR THE 2019 WALK.
