To encourage walking in the local environment, we are promoting local walking groups, publishing local walking routes and creating the Gryffe Valley Way, a walking route the length of the River Gryffe.Details
The River Gryffe flows from the Gryffe Reservoirs and emerges near Kilmacolm. It then flows through Quarriers Village, Bridge of Weir, Houston and Crosslee before joining the Black Cart river near Glasgow airport. The surrounding area is known as the Gryffe Valley, and it provides the name and the catchment area for Gryffe Valley Rotary.
Our weekly meetings are held at a new venue, the Fox and Hounds in Houston. The meetings are sometimes accessible via Zoom. Please look around the website to see more of what Gryffe Valley Rotary does and contact us if you have good ideas for projects or are interested in joining us.
We are a friendly club with 40+ members with a diverse range of backgrounds and interests. Most hail from Houston, Bridge of Weir and Kilmacolm with others from Brookfield, Howwood, Kilbarchan and Lochwinnoch. We enjoy our speaker meetings and through our joint efforts we like to give something back to the broader community through three branches of Rotary service - Community, Youth and International. By the end of the Rotary year we had raised more than a £280,000 pounds in support of charitable causes in these three areas!
Our club is all about helping others less fortunate than ourselves and our ethos is governed by three principles - Fun, Fellowship and Funds:
