About us

Welcome to Stokesley Rotary Club
North East England

Stokesley is a small North Yorkshire market town on the banks of the River Leven, which is home to about 5000 people. The town, with a lovely Georgian market square is only around four miles from the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and about 15 miles from the pretty Yorkshire coastal resort of Saltburn. 

Thursday 24 October 2019 saw Stokesley Methodist Church lit up in purple for World Polio Day.  Rotary's focus is on Purple4Polio, as we continue the challenge of eradicating Polio from the world. There are now just a handful of polio cases in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and we are so close to finally eliminating this dreadful disease. Stokesley Rotary is hosting a coffee morning and Purple Bring and Buy fundraiser in the Church during the morning.

The Club and what we do
The Club was founded in 1980 and comprises members who volunteer their skills and expertise across a variety of areas to activate diverse programmes which benefit local and international communities. Over the years the Club has raised and distributed tens of thousands of pounds and has instigated many local, national and international projects.
The Club meets on Tuesday evenings in the Blacksmith’s Arms in Swainby. Guests and prospective members are always welcome. (www.stokesleyrotary.org.uk). We frequently invite speakers to our meetings, usually related to our objective of providing service to others, but sometimes of general interest. We also have an ongoing programme of outside social visits and community projects.
Please take a look at the programme options so that you can see what we’ve done in the past, and what we plan for the future – you may like to join or support us.

To find out more please email our current President, Ann Keene
