About Us

Skipton Rotary & Rotary in general - see who we are and what we do!

The Rotary Club of Skipton was formed in 1930 and currently has a membership of 44+ 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 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.

However, Rotary is also a Global Organisation with perhaps the largest charitable status 'out there' and helps throughout the World wherever needs exist and help is required.

If you would like to know more

We meet and enjoy a meal together over a period of around 1½ hours each Wednesday evening (from 5.45pm) at the Tempest Arms, Elslack, Nr Skipton, BD23 2AY (01282-842-450) after which we discuss Rotary Business and plan our activities.  Usually we have visiting speakers of interest.

Skipton Rotary Club welcomes visiting Rotarians and guests wishing to take a look at what we do, perhaps with a view to membership.  If you are interested in coming to one of our meetings please contact either the Club Secretary Philip Chadwick or our Membership Officer Graham Huntrods as follows:-



Alternatively you may make contact through any Rotarian who is known to you.
