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 - HE'S BACK!!

We are hoping to, run a Covid-19 safe Grotto at the Settle Lights switch-on and our usual Santa Collections round all the villages to give as many children as possible the chance to see Santa. 

Santa's timetable

During Santa's tour of our area, the Rotary elves will knock on doors as usual but the collecting tins will be on a longer handle to keep us all Covid safe. There will also be a contactless card reader on the Sleigh or if you would prefer, please do make use of the link below, or use the QR code on our posters, to donate directly to our local Christmas collection. We channel all of the money raised back into this community in the form of grants to local groups, charities and individuals who are making a difference in our community.
