About us

WE'RE BACK - We had to cancel our face to face meetings for a while , but we continued to meet up fortnightly by Zoom and we are now back to meeting together in the Royal Oak at Settle  on alternate Thursday evenings, and if anyone would like to join a meeting, please do get in touch with us via the contact page. The meetings begin at 6.30pm. on 2nd and 4th Thursdays each month.

We're a friendly bunch of around 20 people who volunteer in the Settle community, working on projects and raising money, as well as enjoying informal social activities throughout the year. If that sounds like something you’d enjoy, we’d like to meet you.

We're also part of a much bigger organisation, with a warm welcome in every city and the capacity to make change on a global scale - such as eliminating Polio.

 If you think you might be interested, please browse our website to get a better feel for what we are about, view the video at the bottom of this page and maybe use some of these links.

SETTLE ROTARY CLUB is based in and around the picturesque market town of Settle, in the Craven area of the Yorkshire Dales, an area noted for its glorious scenery. More about Settle.

Father Christmas - 2021 - Record breaker!!

Santa's first year back 'on the road' after the 'lost year' of 2020 proved to be a great success. Perspex and visors might have made it a bit strange for our young visitors but they didn't show it and the grown ups really came up trumps with some incredibly generous donations. The total for our local charity fund from this year's Santa activities broke all our previous records with an amazing £5850!   We look forward to using that money for grants and donations to worthy causes in our local area. Do get in touch if you like to bid for help with your project. We especially like to support the work of young people in the community.

If you missed the opportunity to donate before Christmas it isn't too late! Just use the link below at any time to add to Santa's pot.
