Brue Valley Rotary Club usually met at the George Hotel in Castle Cary on thursday evenings before the lock down unless we are away having fun somewhere else. However currently we are meeting virually via Zoom on thursday evenings. If you would like to join any of our meetings please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Brue Valley Rotary Club “ Do you really know what we get up to?"


Ask most people what we as Rotarians do and I expect you will hear that we are a bunch of old men who spend our time with collecting buckets outside supermarkets when not on the golf course or re-enacting 'The Last of the Summer Wine'. 


You will be surprised at how far from reality this is. Brue Valley is a truly mixed club with almost an equal mix of men and women of all ages and we rarely stand anywhere long enough to rattle our buckets.


Over the last year we have raised many thousands of pounds for much needed Charities, mostly by putting our culinary skills to good use cooking at outdoor events in the run up to Christmas and catering for thousands of cyclists at the Tour of Wessex.


But do you know that we organise the local heats of Youth Speaks, helping local school children gain the confidence of debating in public, a life skill that will be with them for ever. Or helping with job interviews to help them gain good careers.


But do you also know that we have a lot of fun whilst helping others and working alongside other Rotary clubs both here and overseas. You may have heard of Shelterbox and Waterbox that are shipped out to disaster zones, well that is a Rotary initiative and there are many boxes all over the world that we have packed.


Since our last newsletter we have been very busy. Three days of catering for the Tour of Wessex raised much needed funds for local charities, we helped at the Sherborne Classics at the Castle, a massive event and one that is firmly in the calendar for next year. But Rotary is not all about fund raising, it is a socially gathering and we have been round Wykes Farm and Mulbury in Shepton, took part in Willow making and glass blowing, not to mention evening walks, Skate Jam in Wincanton, visit to Crown Pet foods, bell ringing, playfest at Castle Cary even having a go at Stone Masonry and spending an evening with Kate Aide.

We welcome both men and women from all backgrounds.
