About us

The Yate and District Rotary Club

Chartered in October 1991

Located approximately 11 miles from the centre of Bristol, Yate and District Rotary Club is a dual-gender club of approximately 30 members.

We are an energetic group, which proves to be very beneficial, as our main fundraising activity each year is the annual South Cotswold Beer Festival - an event which continues to go from strength to strength!  We also organised a successful annual quiz night which is held at The Yate International Academy. 

Other projects of ours have seen us supporting Aqua Boxes, Shelter Boxes, Life Straws, Kids Out, The Chernobyl Children's Lifeline Trust. We also support numerous local charities, such as Yate foodbank, Paul's Place, and many more.

Members of Yate and District Rotary Club enjoy lots of fun and fellowship (often accompanied by our partners), whilst at the same time supporting Rotary, both within the community and on an international scale. We have been very suppotive in the erradication of POLIO throughout the world.

We are always on the lookout for new members. If you would like to find out more, please explore the site, and do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.We meet on Thursday evenings at The White Hart, High Street, Iron Acton, BS37 9UG.
