Welcome to Bishops Waltham Rotary Web Site, If you have often wondered what is Rotary like, why not come and join us at one or two of our meetings. We meet on a Thursday evening, it does not commit you to joining but will give you a chance to see what we do.

Meetings are arranged as follows:

∑   First, second and third Thursdays in the month are short informal meetings starting at 7.30   P.M. where the Clubís business matters are discussed along with planning for events.

∑   The fourth Thursday in the month involves a dinner starting at 7.30 P.M, where we usually are entertained by a speaker on subjects of general interest, or other local or national charities.

∑    When there is a fifth Thursday in the month, this is devoted to a social meeting with for members and their partners. 

     The business of the Club is managed and regulated by the Club Council along with various committees. During the past Rotary year the Club has donated around £20,000 to local, national and international charitable causes.

Our major fund-raising events are:

The annual BW Carnival which, includes a procession through the streets and arena events: a full day of fun activities for the local community.

At Christmas, whatever the weather, we take Roger the engine around the local streets broadcasting carols. Locals always say that Christmas hasnít arrived until the BW Rotary carols are heard.

Yeomanís Yearbook is an annual Classic Vehicle event directory on line, covering the Southern Counties of England and South Wales below the line drawn from the Wash to Aberystwyth, and contains month-by-month listings of classic and historic vehicle events.
