Welcome to the Rotary Club

inspire you to join us in not only supporting our local community but also

The Rotary Club of Lyme
Regis first came into being in 1950 which makes this our 68th year of
Rotary International was
founded 113 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 1850
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 are particularly proud this year to be
able to carry on the great tradition of " Candles on the Cobb ". This is a
spectacular event for all the community to participate in. This year we
are raising funds for The Royal British Legion in commemoration of the
100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and for the benefit of
Lyme Regis youth projects.
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! ( 400 million children need immunising every year - In 1985
Polio was endemic in 125 countries , now only a few cases in 3 )
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.
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 fun and rewarding as we do.
