About us

15th  DECEMBER  1925 


    By combining skills and resources, members of Rotary Bridgend make a real contribution to the lives of others. With Rotary's worldwide presence we are unique in being able to reach people in need across the globe; whether it be supporting local community projects, driving life changing initiatives in developing countries or speedily responding to disaster hit regions.


    Our Vision

    Presidential Citation Awarded to Rotary Bridgend

    The Presidential Citation is awarded annually to Clubs who fulfil at least 13 out of 25 criteria covering Membership, Service Projects, Attendance at District events, Youth, Publicity and Media, and Contribution to The Rotary Foundation.

    We are extremely proud that Bridgend Rotary is one of seven Clubs in District 1150 to have been awarded the Citation this year, this being the second year in succession for us.

    Neil Solman PHF

    Neil sadly passed away on 27th May 2021. He made a huge contribution to our community service and social life, always first in line to volunteer and, in many cases, lead our activities. 
    Neil was presented with a Paul Harris Fellowship on 7th January 2019 in recognition of his distinguished Rotary service both in Bridgend and with his previous club, Coventry Phoenix. 
    He was active almost up to the end, his final act as a Rotarian being to commision and distribute face masks bearing our logo. Neil was a great Rotarian and perhaps more importantly a great man. We will miss him terribly.
