About us



The Club will be meeting at 7.30pm on the 1st (Business Meeting) and 3rd (Speaker Evening) Thursday of the month at our temporary venue, Pennant Community Centre.Pennant, SY23 5PA. Working even closer to and with our communities.


The Club prides itself on the fact that it does not matter how long you have been a member your view and opinion is as important as everyone elses. Everyone has a talent(s) and skill(s) to fill roles within the Club. Most importantly, our Club is operated democratically, openly and with total transparency. This is backed up by the Rotary Four Way Test:- "Is it the Truth?"; "Is it fair to all concerned?"; "Will it build good will and better friendships"; and "Will it be beneficial to all concerned". Be honest and open with everyone you deal with.

Aberaeron Rotary Club has, for nealry 20 years, given priority to supporting our local communities. Our current priorities are to attempt to assist and tackle the problems of today. We were initially concentrating on Dementia and Alzheimers in our communities, along with their carers. However, the COVID pandemic, along with the pressures placed on individuals and groups, has had a wider impact on mental health and well-being. We will be forming a partnership, with a wider group of communities, to offer some assistance, advice and hopefully a release from the impact of lockdowns and of getting back to something like the normality pre-COVID. 

Also, another pressing issue is the cost of living crisis. We will be looking, with the wider communities, to set up community pantries, community kitchens and the provision of food. 

There is also the present issue with the conflict in the Ukraine that we will be mindful of and look to offer any assistance that we can. 

The Club is flexible and adaptable and has always been ready to assist with any future issues no matter how big or small.

Below is listed projects that are an example of the range of activities that we have undertaken: -

At Aberaeron Junior & Infant School we have supported a buddy reading scheme and a volunteer pupil group (Rotakids); Aberaeron High School we have supported a youth group (Rotary Interact]); and we formed and supported and advise the Rotaract Club in Aberystwyth.

The Club have supported pupils, in the local senior school, to enter Rotary Youth Competitions:-

Youth speaks Welsh and Young interviewer Welsh; Young writer Welsh; Young chef and Young Singer/musician; and Young writer English and Young photographer

The Club has organised various events, over the years, for a 'Kids Day Out' at Christmas and June.

We have provided funding for a student, from the senior school, to attend a 5 day "leadership” course at Storey Arms Outdoor Pursuit Centre, Brecon Beacons, each August.

We have also provided support for 2 students to attend seminars run by the Holocaust Trust. This includes a visit to Auschwitz. (February)

A street collection in the summer has been used to raise money for various locally based charities/groups and our Christmas collection, over 20 years, has always been in aid of the Welsh Air Ambulance. 

We have provided stewards and assistance for Welsh Cob Day, Aeron Vintage Show, Aberaeron Community Christmas and have fund raising stalls on Aberaeron Carnival Day.

If you feel that you would like to help in your community why not come along and see if you can serve in some way. The Club is dual gender and has a very informal format. The Club is very friendly and holds great store in having social evenings and fellowship. We meet face to face and try to avoid the impersonal use of media. 

Don't be a spectator. 'Imagine' the difference you getting involved could make.
