Welcome to Rotary in the Thames Valley
We are people of action, making a difference in our communities.
Rotary is one of the world’s largest and most successful global membership and humanitarian service organisations, with 1.2 million members in over 200 countries. Our very lively District, which covers Berkshire, Oxfordshire, South Buckinghamshire and West Middlesex has 58 clubs and approximately 1860 active members all serving their communities and having great fun at the same time. See more
GIVE SOMETHING BACK: If you enjoy helping others, connecting with Rotary gives you the chance to do something really worthwhile.
FUN AND FRIENDSHIP: Rotary membership is a lot of fun. We arrange activities which provide a welcome distraction from busy lives and the opportunity to make new friends who share common values.
BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES: Rotary was founded over 100 years ago as a business networking club and this is still part of Rotary life. Ethical practice is encouraged and, with members drawn from all walks of life, the opportunities to network are endless.
New members are always welcome, and with the unique character of each Rotary Club, the opportunities are endless. Clubs meet for breakfast, lunch, in the evening and even at the weekend. So what are you waiting for? Start your Rotary journey today...
October 24th is World Polio Day
As the number of polio cases approaches zero, the challenges facing Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative are changing. We still need to reach every child with the polio vaccine – and we’re using innovative strategies to do that, in spite of geopolitical uncertainties.
That’s only one part of our job – we’re tackling vaccine-derived poliovirus, which can begin to spread in places where vaccine coverage is low. We’re becoming disease detectives, following up on any shred of evidence that wild poliovirus might still be circulating, and we’re fine-tuning our plan to keep the world free of polio forever.
On and around World Polio Day Rotarians across the Thames Valley hold events and plant purple crocuses which represent the purple dye put on a child's little finger that show they have been immunised.

Read all about how one group of young people from all over the world on Rotary Exchange visits to the USA in 1981 met on a tour of the country and formed firm friendships. Over the years these friendships have been maintained and they have now formalised themselves into a Rotary Alumni Association, affiliated to Thames Valley District. They aim to support young people who have qualified to be a Rotary Exchange Student, but lack the financial means to pay for flights and other related expenses. Inspiring alumni......
Thames Valley e-Rotary is a new venture, introducing a different set of opportunities for those wishing to support their local community but unable to participate regularly though pressures of work, family or travel. This new group operates online with regular discussions, interesting speakers and support for local communities.
The aim is to offer Rotary 24/7 so you can keep informed of the latest developments and projects and offer what time you can to participate in activities undertaken by ordinary people just like yourself. Find out more onFacebook
