JULY 2020 UPDATE

Please click MUSINGS LETTER  from District 1100
District Governor (DG) Christ Firth

Welcome to Rotary District 1100

We are people of action in District 1100, making a difference in our communities in Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Bristol, Swindon and parts of Monmouthshire, Somerset and Wiltshire.

Our very lively District has 63 active clubs and almost 1,800 members, all serving their communities and having great fun at the same time. We pride ourselves on having a diverse membership: men and women, young and senior, from different walks of life, nationalities and faiths all serving together and with common values.

So, if you are looking to have fun meeting new people and getting actively involved in your local community, there is an increasingly wide variety of options. These can include attending traditional club meetings to enjoy friendship, listening to stimulating speakers on topical issues and assisting local or international humanitarian projects.  

Interested in finding out more? 

New members are always welcome and, with the unique character of each Rotary club, the opportunities are limitless.  Our clubs meet either for breakfast, lunch, in the evening or even at the weekend.  So what are you waiting for?  Start your Rotary journey today by contacting your local Rotary club.

Carer Support Wiltshire are delighted to announce that Royal Wootton Bassett & District Rotary Club have chosen to support unpaid carers by selecting them as one of their charities for the year ahead. Read the full media release here.

Through COVID-19 and beyond

Despite the unprecedented situation we are currently experiencing, it has been heart warming to see the impact that Rotary is continuing to have in our communities and the connections which members are both maintaining and creating in these challenging times.

As a member of one of the world's largest humanitarian service organisations, you are able to experience a range of significant benefits as part of your subscription. Something that volunteers at other organisations do not have the opportunity to access.

We are committed to adapting the services we offer to members during the COVID-19 pandemic to suit your needs, while continuing to provide the essential support and infrastructure you need to make a difference.
