Welcome to the Rotary Club of Shipston on Stour

Brief introduction to the Club

The Rotary Club of Shipston on Stour was formed in 1980 with 26 members.  In the past 40 years it has given immense service and support to the Shipston community and its environs.  Support has involved donations to charities and good causes as well as organising and contributing to large scale events for the benefit of the town.  Membership of both men and women has grown from the outset and now stands at 32.  We are a very convivial and dynamic group whose aim is to promote friendship and enjoyment.

As we move into the post-Covid era, we hope to resume our regular programme which will involve meetings with speakers, informal get togethers and meetings to conduct the business of the Club.  A formal programme has yet to be finalised but details are available from our secretary.   We are looking for a new place to meet, preferably in Shipston, and we are currently trying a number of venues to find the best fit.  Again, our secretary will provide you with more information.

Rotary is a global organisation with international, national and local associations.  The Club raises money and gives up time for the benefit of local good causes and those wider afield.   If you wish to be part of Rotary and contribute to our worthwhile causes and programmes,  please contact Peter Cowley whose details are below.
