Welcome to Rotary York Ainsty. We were founded in 1960 to give an opportunity for local people to get involved with York and its many communities. RYA is part of a world-wide network of 1.2 million volunteers and encompasses a healthy York-based volunteer community.
Rotary York Ainsty meets regularly to to discuss projects, activities and for social fellowship.
Please note that we have cancelled all normal face-to-face activities for the foreseeable future. However, the club is still meeting 'virtually' and are very active in the local community.
Becoming a member of a club or society is one of the most gratifying things one can do. It is the epitome of social interaction, business networking and personal fulfilment. Each club has their own requirements and regulations.
There are so many advantages of becoming a member of a club, such as learning new skills, developing a passion for something specific, creating a bond with people that share the same interests and, most of all, inspiration of change through mentorship and guidance.
At Rotary York Ainsty you will find people who care about both our local community and disadvantaged people across the world. Care and support is either through fund-raising / charitable collections or the investment of time and talent in specific projects and activities. Rotarians are PEOPLE of ACTION.

The Ainsty is first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 (in the form Ainestig), when it was a wapentake of the West Riding of Yorkshire. It was named from Ainsty Cliff at Bilbrough, presumably the original meeting place of the wapentake. Click here to find out more from Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ainsty
