About Rotary Nailsea & Backwell

Nailsea Walks 2023

The club was formed in May 1977 and ever since then our members have been active across a wide range of service activities, projects and fundraising in a friendly social environment.

We are always on the look out for potential members, both male and female, who are looking to increase their social circle while putting something back into our local community and the national / international scene.

The other "What we do" pages give more detail to our current projects and activities and we also have an active social programme of events and visits for members and their partners throughout the year.

We meet for a meal on the first, third and fifth Thursday evening of each month at 7:00pm at The Mizzymead Recreation Centre in the middle of Nailsea (meeting in the bar from 6:30).  We have outside caterers so visitors do need to contact us a few days prior to the day of the meeting so we can order their meal. Use the "contact us" link below if you would like to attend a meeting and select "I'd like to visit".

If you would like to know more about us and the work we do, with or without the view to possible membership, then please click on the 'Contact us" below and select 'General enquiry' or 'I'm interested in joining' in the 'Subject' drop down menu box.
