Tuesday meeting

Tue, Jul 18th 2017 at 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

District Governor Robert Morphet of Bradford West made his annual visit to the Club on the day we were hosting President John Hafseth and his Headingley members

Robert's message covered three main points:

  • A wish to stregthen and support Clubs
  • A continuation of humanitarian projects like Eradicating Polio and
  • Enhancing Rotary's image to the world outside

Good to read on the Headingley website that they considered themselves 'right royally treated'

The opportunity was also taken by President Heather to present Lynn Rhodes-Holme with her President Elect's ribbon

This committee covers activities relating to schools, Rotary competitions and individuals in this age group seeking support

New members Carol and Roger Ward with President Heather

The Rotary Club of Aireborough owes a great debt to the fine efforts of this committee. Traditionally recruitment begins via personal contact with a member and with meetings now held on both Tuesday lunchtime and Thursday evening there are more options.


This Committee tries to ensure weekly meetings run smoothly, arranges events both fund-raising and social, seeks ways to publicise activities and maintains the website. Reports on activities follow below, although they will often feature on the homepage.

Change of venue for the enthusiastic Jake and friends

This committee organises several yearly community events including Dictionaries4 Life and Kids Out as well as the social Interactive Quiz. It also supports the Friends of Guiseley Cemetery and reading in schools.

These items produced by the  Days for Girls team will soon be benefiting Kwa Zulu Natal pupils

This Committee supports activities financially and through hands-on help, including participating in immunisations in India, filling Aquaboxes for disaster areas, backpacks for Mary's Meals pupils and menstrual care kits for pupils through Days for Girls.


Foundation is Rotary's own charity and close to home funds the Peace Department at Bradford University and in previous years helped many Global grant Scholars including Mark Maccuzzo and Kayono Nakajima to study in Leeds and be hosted by our Club.


The Thursday group initially the Nomads began as a satellite group meeting on the first and third Thursdays of the month at Horsforth Golf Club between 6.00 and 8.00 p.m. on an informal 'drop-in'basis. Periodically other venues are also explored.

But life suddenly changed under lockdown

This is how and where the Club began in 1953 originally meeting at the then Yeadon Airport. Since then as times have changed so have the venues but we are now firmly ensconced at Horsforth Golf Club
