The Rotary Club of Lyme Regis

We are a group of men and women who combine their skills and resources towards supporting
 and serving our community, both here and overseas, where there is a need.
We meet once a week, over a light meal and refreshment, conduct business such as event organisation,
and enjoy each other’s company and friendship.

  Welcome to our website.  We hope you will enjoy your visit and learn about Rotary and our Club.

Message from President David

We welcome you to our very informative website, please take time to view.

The Rotary Club of Lyme Regis is proud to announce that we are now over 65 Years old, a fine achievement.

Several people have approached me in the past and asked, “Why Rotary?” Well, our club is part of a 110-year-old worldwide Rotary network, a vast organisation with over 1.2 million dynamic and committed members in 33,000 clubs across more than 200 countries. In Great Britain there are around 53,000 Rotarians in 1,840 clubs. The membership forms a strong network of men and women of all ages and backgrounds who volunteer their time to serve their local communities and those less fortunate across the world.

Like all Rotary Clubs, as well as the Service element of our organisation, we raise money by running fund raising events for Local, National and International charitable organisations as well as individuals and smaller local organisations and businesses - please see our ‘News and Events’ link, left.

One of Rotary’s many achievements is helping to eradicate Polio in the poorer countries of the world. We are nearly there, we are so close! Help us to keep going and finish the job, see Purple4Polio on the Rotary International website.

One of our priorities is to work alongside our local schools and also involve ourselves with youth projects, sometimes working as a joint venture with other Rotary Clubs to achieve our ultimate aims.

We have a full diary of various social activities, and Partner evenings along with skittles and other sporting events throughout the year. We enjoy helping others, having fun and getting a lot of satisfaction at the same time.

If you are seeking more information, please contact our Club Secretary to discuss or arrange a visit to our weekly meetings.

Visiting Rotarians and their partners are very welcome to our meetings.

Contact: Our regular meeting place, The Pilot Boat Inn in Lyme Regis is about to undergo an extensive refit and alteration.  As a result we are moving out from 1st November until the end of February 2017.  Although we think we have found alternative temporary accommodation, may I suggest that any intending visitor should contact me for information of our meetings, either by email or by telephone 01297 560081.

 Highlights of our Rotary year

We are an active Club with a number of projects which have become established events in the Lyme Regis calendar. An important function of these events is to raise monies for good causes (£10,000 per annum on average over the past 5 years), but they also support the business community and add something to the social and cultural scene in Lyme Regis. Here is a sample of our fundraising events for the current session.
