Rotary Settle - welcome! Please scroll/swipe down through this page to find out more about us, in addition to the pages linked in the menu, top-left.
Hello and welcome, you’ve found SETTLE ROTARY on the web.
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.
