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
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.
President Rotary Club of Lyme Regis
