About us

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.

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.

Santa Claus is back in town!! . . . .and villages!

Yes, once again we have been assisting Santa in his attempt to visit every child in North Craven before Christmas Day.

Thanks to the generosity of Craven people this year he has raised some £6500 for local good causes which we will be supporting through the year.

The 2019 Settle Saunter enjoyed excellent weather on  Sunday 9th June. This year it raised over £2700 and we presented cheques for £1500 each to Settle Swimming Pool and Kids at School in Nepal at the annual Hog Roast.The Saunter is an annual event for runners, walkers and strollers which offers 3 routes through the stunning local countryside with lengths of 10km, Half Marathon and 23 miles.

Next year's Saunter provisional date is Sunday 7th June 2020. Entries can be made online at www.bookitzone.com or via the Saunter pages on this website.


    HOG ROAST _ SUNDAY 30th JUNE 2019

    With excellent food, wonderful music from Giggleswick and Settle brass band and Jack Miller, and a good crowd , this annual event raised some £1400 for Cancer Research. President Bob Hargreaves awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship to Floyd Scofield for all her work for the Club. He then handed over the Presidency to Roger Brearley.



    We are always happy to welcome volunteers to help with events and activities. For instance we are always grateful for help with the following:

    • The Settle Saunter always needs volunteers to help with checkpoints and at the Victoria Hall
    • Manning the bookstall we run on fine summer Saturdays in Settle Market Place
    • Collecting with Santa during the month of December
    • Collecting for disaster relief when needed

    It's a great way to find out what we are all about. Please use the "Contact Us" link above to get in touch.
