Biggar Rotary Club was founded in 1977.
Although a small club, Biggar Rotarians have a leadership role in numerous local initiatives such as Friends of Kello Hospital Trust, Biggar Little Cinema, Biggar Community Toilets, Biggar Museum Trust, U3A Biggar and many others.
Biggar Rotary club has a long and productive relationship with Biggar High School and supports school teams as they take part in many of the Rotary District initiatives and competitions. The Young Musician competition has been running for over twenty years – latterly as part of Biggar Little Festival.
We sponsor Rotakids and also an Interact club, both of which teach young people about Rotary values, and encourage them to raise funds for various charity projects.
The Interact Club (run by its members, with Rotary Club support), is for students from S1 upwards, and has been promoting Rotary ethos in the school, with both fund-raising projects and external speakers.
We organise and run an Annual Quiz for all the local Primary Schools.
Members do not just come from Biggar. The surrounding Communities of Symington, Thankerton, Lanark, Skirling, Covington, Douglas, Broughton and Dolphinton all contribute Members! We have Male and Female Members, and will be introducing Associate and Corporate Memberships.
Before the COVID pandemic, we normally met every Tuesday evening for a meal, followed by a speaker. Meetings began at (6.15pm for) 6.45pm and were usually completed by 9.00pm. However, we plan to review this once we are out of Covid restrictions, recognising that a rigid adherence to tradition may cause difficulties in attracting new members whose other commitments prevent them from participating in this way.
