About us

A very warm welcome from Nailsea and Backwell Rotary, a member of Rotary International. We have been serving the local and international community for over 43 years.



 View over Backwell from Backwell Hill with Nailsea in the far distanceOur local area is centered on the rural communities of Nailsea and Backwell, set in the delightful North Somerset countryside to the West of Bristol, UK.

We offer practical service to the local community and raise funds for worthwhile causes at home and abroad.  We also have an active social programme.  We normally meet on nearly every Thursday evening at The Mizzymead Recreation Centre in the middle of Nailsea but meetings there are currently postponed due to the Coronavirus and we meet most weeks online on Thursday evenings instead.  New members are always welcome. Do follow this link if you would like to know more about us or are thinking that you might like to join us.
