About Us


Since we became a chartered member of Rotary International in October 1988, we have used our contacts, our enthusiasm and our energy to benefit communities around the Chew Valley and local area. 

As many of our members have busy lives already, we use the internet to keep in touch, share ideas, and offer support, so if you can’t attend a meeting, it doesn’t matter, you can still keep in touch.

 We like to have fun and enjoy a good meal too, which is why we are based at the Carpenters Arms, Stanton Drew, where we meet alternative  Tuesday evenings at 7:30pm, (see programme). 

If you would like to join us, or you know someone who may be interested then please contact: Mike Hedges   email: m.hedges764@btinternet.com  Or you can find out more about us by browsing this site.   We are always very happy to see potential new members.
