Celebrating 40 years of Community Service

Tue, Mar 14th 2023 at 7:00 pm- Mon, Jul 31st 2023 - 9:00 pm

For 40 years Rotary has been making a difference in the communities in and around Storrington

Storrington & Pulborough District Rotary Club is part of the wider national and international Rotary organisation.

Our aims mirror those of other Rotary Clubs:

  • Service above Self - putting our expertise and skills together in support of projects that directly help the local and wider community, raising funds where needed
  • Friendship - our weekly meetings enable our members to enjoy dining in the company of other like-minded local people
  • International - awareness and fund raising for specific projects overseas identified by the Club.

Rotary meetings

Our Monday evening gatherings are the focus of our activities. These are enjoyable social occasions when we share a meal, which is often followed by a short presentation from a guest speaker. Once a month we hold a business meeting after supper to monitor progress with our current service projects and related fund-raising. There are also fellowship and guest evenings when members can invite partners or friends to join them.

Social activities

Our male and female members share a common interest in friendship and having a good time. We have a lively social programme with visits to places of interest, 10 pin bowling events and other light-hearted sports, meals out, as well as an annual Christmas Dinner and an annual Dinner/Dance. We have friendly European ties with a Club Villeneuve-sur-Lot, France and meet with their Rotarians from time to time.

Join Rotary and make a difference in your community

Our members share a common interest in supporting our communities, friendship and having a good time.

With the support of local folk we are able to make a world of difference in our community and beyond by supporting:

  • Local young people’s ambitions and leadership development projects through local schools
  • Village Days - community family events across the district 
  • A Family Fun Day - a fun event for children with special needs from around the county
  • Rotary’s ‘End Polio Now’ project that has almost eradicated this disease Worldwide
  • Village film nights - monthly showing at Sullington Village Hall of some of the latest hit movies - with transport available for those who need it
  • Storrington Bank Holiday Car Boot Sales
  • Rotary Saturday Morning Book Stall in Storrington
  • Christmas Tree recycling scheme
  • Sending help to stricken people worldwide
  • The work of a school in Kilolo, Tanzania and some of its pupils.

And much more.

We welcome new members and would be delighted to talk to you about our club and how you could make new friends and be involved in making a difference in the community.
