Becoming a member of Skipton Rotary
A Few Words about Membership
The Rotary Club of Skipton has existed since 1930 and has a membership of around 40 men & women. New Members are always welcome, indeed essential, to maintain a thriving club. Putting it simply, Rotarians are volunteers, trying to do good in the community, whether locally or abroad, and bearing a Motto of ‘Service before Self’, we are proud to be of service. Locally we are involved with community and environmental projects around 'Craven' and give grants to deserving young people, local charities, clubs & organisations, from funds raised by our charitable efforts.
We meet each Wednesday for a couple of hours, from 6pm at the Tempest Arms, Elslack. Meetings commence with a set meal, following which we discuss and plan our activities. Usually we have talks and presentations on all manner of interesting topics and where there is a 5th Wednesday in the month the meeting would usually be arranged as a social event with partners at alternative venues, for instance theatre outings.
In addition to our meetings and social activities we undertake all manner of tasks and events in the interests of raising funds through teamwork, enabling us to help those less fortunate than ourselves, both locally and Internationally.

Hopefully you will recognise before too long, the many advantages of joining a wonderful network of like-minded people; a support mechanism that is really effective for personal development.
