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.

Message from our President

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Lyme Regis Website.

We hope you will not only find it informative about the many activities of our club but also might inspire you to join us in not only supporting our local community but also our national and international initiatives for good causes. Rotary makes a difference!


The Rotary Club of Lyme Regis first came into being in 1950 which makes this our 70th year of service.


Rotary International was founded 115 years ago and has become one of the world's largest and most successful global membership and humanitarian service organisations with 1.2 million members in 35000 clubs in over 200 countries with over 1700 clubs in Great Britain .


Our members come from all walks of life and are a network of men and women of all ages and backgrounds who volunteer their time to help others, not only in our local community but across the world who are less fortunate than ourselves.


We are involved in a wide variety of fund raising events and even though our activities have been curtailed in recent months, we have still been able to undertake some fundraising and make donations to a number of local, regional and international good causes. We also give our time to help with various local activities such as stewarding at vaccination clinics; and tending the flowerbed that we have adopted in the Town’s Gardens.


As well as many local good causes we continue to support Rotary International's projects such as the fantastic achievement of ' Eradicating Polio ' from the world.--- We are almost there, with all of Africa being declared 'Polio Free' by the World Health Organisation in 2020! (400 million children need immunising every year - In 1985 Polio was endemic in 125 countries , now only a few cases in 2 )


Although much effort is put into service and supporting good causes we like to think that being a member of our club as a ' fun ' experience, creating lots of friendships. In more normal times we hold many social activities , partners events and get-togethers with other clubs and organisations and the community at large.

Why not come and join us! We offer full or temporary Associate membership where you can join in our activities to see if you find it as enjoyable and rewarding as we do.


If you would like more information please contact our club secretary to discuss or arrange a visit .

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 recent sessions:
