About us

Welcome to Rotary in Severn Vale.

News: Our next Club Car Run event for Vintage, Classic & Interesting Cars is now planned for 1st September 2024

Welcome to our home page. We hope you find something of interest here.

We have our face-to-face Breakfast meetings on our usual schedule of 1st and 3rd Tuesdays at 7:30am

From our President

"Fulfilling the Promise; Making a Difference".

We are a club of around 24 professionals meeting twice a month for breakfast and between times to socialise, have some fun and contribute to making the world a better place.

As Rotarians, we each have the ability to make a difference; in our club, our local community and in the bigger worldwide community. 

If you want to make a difference too, contact us through the links on this page. 
We would be happy to welcome you for breakfast; come and see what we're like.

President of the Rotary Club of Severn Vale
