The Rotary Club of Lymm
Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) is an organisation of more than 51,000 men and women who, as members of over 1,800 Rotary clubs, volunteer their time, talents, professional skills and energy to improving the lives of people within their local communities and in those around the world. The motto is Service above Self.
Many well- known local people who have served the Club faithfully over our 80 year period.
We meet weekly on Wednesday at Statham Lodge Hotel, Warrington Road, Lymm; 7.15pm for 7.30pm dinner. The meal costs 14 for three courses, but for those who can help, but prefer to come after the meal, they can arrive for 8.30pm and enjoy listening to one of our speakers and a minimal amount of business. Once a month, we have a full Business Meeting without a speaker where we discuss and organise all our forthcoming events.
The Rotary Club of Lymm is not a Rich Man organisation. Our annual subscription is currently 110 per annum and most of this goes towards the National and International costs, which cover insurance for our events and Head Office management costs. We do need people who can commit to assisting with and helping organise our fund raising, as well as helping in the Community.
We currently have 19 members, but to share the workload and enable us to continue to serve the people of Lymm, Thelwall and Partington as we do, we now have Friends of Rotary and Rotary Helpers. These now total 52 people and are invaluable to us by helping with our Christmas Float and other activities we need to carry out.
Whilst we meet weekly for a meal meeting at Statham Lodge Hotel, many people today are unable to make this commitment and this is where the above categories mean those who wish to be involved can do so and be part of our service. Several do attend our Open Meetings after the meal at 8.30pm, where we will have a special evening with a chosen speaker for the night.
We work hard at our main purposes, but we also believe having fun and enjoying ourselves, so In addition to the regular weekly meetings, there are many occasions during the year when we have visits, outings, barbecues, 'just fun do's' etc., to which friends & families are invited.
We also have our annual Charter Evening celebration, a formal dinner with guests & speakers, when we remind ourselves of our inception and purpose, and also. and why not, give ourselves a 'pat on the back', and quite shamelessly say 'Well done'.
Be part of a global network of volunteers, trying to make the world a better place. Please also see the 'links & news' page for information from the local district and live feeds from Rotary International and Rotary International in GB&I.
