About us

The Rotary Club of Otter Valley


WELCOME!: A very warm welcome to our website ! Thank you for taking  the time to take a look at what we do - please do browse. You'll hopefully sense that this is an active, vibrant , fun-loving but successful club, and it offers a very wide range of events and projects, large and small, for members to choose where and how to get involved.      

WHO ARE WE?  All volunteers. Like-minded people who want to put something back, and enjoy the way Rotary achieves that. The women and men in our club span wide ranges of age, professions, skills, knowledge, contacts, interests - a great mix for getting things done.  Rotary is a truly international organisation with over 30,000 clubs operating in over 130 countries.  We genuinely welcome diversity ! 

THE AREA WE SERVE? The communities of Honiton, Cranbrook and Ottery St Mary and their surrounding villages, Otter Valley Rotary has 25 members, and many "Friends of Rotary"  who offer to get involved & help with events and projects. We have club members and friends living in most areas that we serve, and with that localised network we can stay close to understanding what help is needed where.   

OUR PROJECTS ? Wide ranging, and can best be described under headings of Community , Youth Development , International & Foundation, Fundraising, and Club Services ( enjoying ourselves!). Examples are shown on the respective pages of this website. 

OPERATING WITH COVID-19: In "pre-covid times we had the opportunity to meet up on Tuesday evenings. Sometimes to hear a guest speaker, sometimes a discussion of business. Always to enjoy the banter. Since Covid-19 struck we have adapted how we operate and are now quite adept at using zoom meetings - for business, for speakers, even for fundraising. And still the banter. A look at the events and meetings pages (past and future ) will hopefully show how we remain a socially enjoyable group but with a serious purpose. 

WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT ANYTHING? We hope you enjoyed your browse. If anything grabbed your interest, and you'd like to know more , simply go to our contact page and send a message.
