About us

STOP PRESS!

We raised £1,169 during our collection for ShelterBox.  Thank you all for your support we couldn't have done it without you.   


A ShelterBox contains a family sized tent, essential tools, cooking sets, solar lights and activity sets for children each box costing £650. Supported by a ShelterKit containing essential tools to repair and rebuild homes.

Currently a team are in Bangladesh assessing the needs of the Rohingya people where 800,000 have been forced across the border from Myanmar. 

ShelterBox will be supporting 4000 families with 8000 solar lights and 800 jerry cans in Bangladesh.

The Rotary Club of South Queensferry has already purchased one ShelterBox this year for the Caribbean and Asian flood appeals.

RYLA Students visit the Club

On Thursday 2nd November, the Rotary Club of South Queensferry held a fellowship meeting in the Hawes Inn. Following the meal, members were addressed by four Rotary Young Leaders' Awards participants who had been sponsored by the club to attend a week-long programme of outdoor activity, physical and mental challenges and team-building exercises in the Perthshire hills. Kathryn Hope, Fiona Stoddart, Cameron McArthur and Ssarien Liddell, all students at Queensferry High School, gave a short, often amusing presentation outlining their varied experiences and how they reacted to the sometimes surprising tasks they had to complete. Each student brought home individual memories, but all agreed that the course had broadened their horizons and   faced them with tasks that could only be solved by co-operation and teamwork which would stand them in good stead during future studies and careers.  

The quote of the evening which sums up RYLA and their experiences has to be

"It helps you become the person you could be."


Rotary Young Golfer Competition

The Rotary Young Golfer competition was held at Kingsfield Golf Club near Linlithgow on 3rd August 2017.
The competition brings together the winners of Rotary Club Competitions held throughout District 1020. Max age of competitors is 16 as at 1st January 2017.
This competition has effectively 2 winners a scratch winner and a handicap one, with the District Shield being awarded to the Handicap Winner.


The competition was delayed on the day by severe rain with some 40mm falling in 2 hours. However when play did get underway we were treated to some very good golf being played in the best of spirits by all competitors.

Our photo shows  Lewis Johnson being presented with his trophy by President Neil.  Lewis  won the scratch event which is the best score of the day. Lewis had an excellent one over par round of 69.   For more photos go to our past events page entitled Rotary Young Golfer 2017 Competition.
