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 31.  We are a very convivial and dynamic group whose aim is to promote friendship and enjoyment.

As we embark on a new Rotary Year we plan to provide a programme varying in content and format, which will involve meetings with speakers, informal get togethers and meetings to conduct the business of the Club.  Details are available from our secretary.   

We have been looking for a new base for some time and the newly refurbished Shipston Sports Club looks most promising.  Again, our secretary will provide you with more information.

Rotary is a global organisation with international, national and local associations and every Rotarian is encouraged to attend clubs if travelling int other pasrt of the UK or abroad.   Club members raise money and  give their time for the benefit of local good causes and those further afield.  

Our Vision is to be a Club that contributes to, and is valued by, the community of Shipston-on-Stour and its environs as well as supporting local, national and international charities and good causes.

In essence,  joining Rotary opens a world where you can join a global commnuity, have fun, develop friendships, contribute to the betterment of local, national and international good causes and derive a sense of "giving something back".

If you wish to be part of Rotary and contribute to our worthwhile causes and programmes,  please contact Peter Cowley whose details are below.
