About us

On May 2nd, 2024 we were invited to Ty Hafan Hospice for their annual tea party.  We took a cheque for £1000, proceeds from the Race Night.

Cheque Presentation 2024The picture shows David presenting the cheque watched by Phil, this year's president.  Our sincere thanks go to everyone who attended the race night and made this presentation possible, and of course, to Gareth who organised this and the previous 29 Nights at the Races.

The Arboretum has had it's first Spring Cut.
It is looking Great.

The Race Night 2024

The Race night was a huge success.  We shall be presenting Ty Hafan with a cheque for £1000.

Thanks again to Gareth who organised his thirtieth Race Night this year and Nigel for running the race videos.  Once again some of the horses were running in their thirtieth race according to the race card.  Some of mine are still running trying to find the finishing line.

Thanks to Diane and her team for the lovely Ploughman's supper.

Congratulations to anyone who actually made a profit on the night, but I doubt there were many!  Thanks to everyone for supporting this event, made even more profitable by the Grange, once again, for not charging us for the room.


The Musical Evening....

Was a great success.  Thanks to all who supported this event.


Another Visit to Ty Hafan (2023)

This visit to Ty Hafan was to attend an afternoon tea and a tour of their fantastic facilities.  Representing the club, and seen here is Gareth Williams, who has organised Race Nights in Usk every year since 1993 (excluding the Covid Years).  He was accompanied by our Treasurer, David Oram.  Due largely to Gareth's efforts (obviously supported by the rest of the club), we have been able to donate £20,000 to the hospice.  The second picture shows David indicating our leaf on their Donation Tree in the Ty Hafan foyer, and the third picture shows the leaf in detail.

The Coronation Tree

On May 6th, 2023 Usk Town Council planted an Oak Tree to commemorate the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla.  The picture shows The Mayor and Mayoress Meirion and Sarah Howells with members of the town council and Rotary Club members Phil (President) and Nigel (Past President and Arboretum Manager).

Well planted!  The Mayor, Mayoress and Rotary President.  The picture also shows the memorial plaque.

Our Visit to Ty Hafan Hospice

Three members of Usk Rotary Club spent a pleasant morning taking a cheque for £1000 to the Ty Hafan Hospice.  The Hospice provides care and support to families of children with life-shortening conditions.

 RYLA - Rotary Youth Leadership Award

Usk Rotary Club has sponsored a young person to attend Storey Arms Outdoor Education Centre on a 6 day Youth Leadership Course.  Our picture shows Millie with her mother and Usk Rotary Club's Almoner, Geoffrey Williams standing in front of the Centre at Storey Arms.  The picture was taken at the start of the course.  Six days later, Millie had made new friends and experienced a wide variety of activities, which she thoroughly enjoyed.



The Ukraine Crisis Appeal

We are very pleased to announce that we have been able to provide help with the transport of  donations for the benefit of the Ukrainian refugees.  One of our members has been driving between Usk and the collection point with full loads of useful items, kindly donated by the people of Usk.



The pictures show a car full of donations from Usk (One of many trips) and the collection centre in Newport sorting the donations ready for their long journey.

Members of The Rotary Club of Usk have made contributions to the Ukraine Crisis Appeal,  opting for Gift Aid in order to increase the value of their contributions.  Your contributions will really make a difference.   You may make a contribution via the Rotary Foundation web site at
