Due to the current situation regarding Covid19 we have decided to suspend all meetings and events until further notice.
The Rotary Club of Chipping Campden meets at the Cotswold House Hotel, Chipping Campden. we draw our membership from the town and surrounding villages.
The purpose of the club is to bring together local, like minded, people to enjoy fellowship, serve their community and contribute to local national and international projects.
We face constant demands for help and assistance in our local community and we have, over the past twenty five years raised in excess of Â£100,000. As there are no administration costs or wages to pay every penny you helped to raise has gone directly to where it is needed.
Within the local Community with your help, we have purchased
A Defibrillator for Moreton Ambulance Station, Village seats in Chipping Campden, Weston-sub-Edge, Mickelton, Paxford, Blockley, planted a Marie Curie Daffodil field in Chipping Campden and Paxford. Planted purple Crocus fields as as part of Rotarys Polio eradication project.

We have also given educational grants to a number of local students to go on intersting projects overseas.
ROTARY'S best-know motto is
"SERVICE ABOVE SELF
So here is an opportunity for you to serve your community, we are always looking for additional new, vibrant, enthusiastic members,in order to attract both men and women to join with us in this enjoyable and worthwhile work we have decided to modify our usual format. We all have many important commitments, however as we enjoy each others company and the projects we do together, members now attend as often as they are able, In the past, there was a requirement to attend 60% of meetings, but the Rotary movement recognises that the pressure of modern life have made change necessary. Rotary members find that it provides them with FELLOWSHIP, the opportunity for FUNDRAISING and not least FUN in working together.
