About us

 

The Rotary Club of Bridgnorth received its charter in 1943. The Club is part of a world wide organisation and members are welcome at other Clubs in the UK and around the world.

The Club meets on Wednedays at The Down Inn on the Bridgnorth Ludlow Road. The meetings are for Business, fellowship,  include committee activities , some after dinner speakers and other social activities. We take part in a range of competitive activities with other clubs and also initiate our own events.  We hold a number of annual events  to raise money for charity. Current events are Classic Car Run, Sponsored Slim, Golf Day, Steps Walk and 100 club. Proceeds from our events go to either local, national  and international charities.

We have a wishing well in The Castle Park grounds, this was sponsored by local businesses and supported by The Town Council. The well was project managed throughout by President Robert Davies (16/17)  

We are always interested in new members. Prospective members should be adult persons of good character from all walks of life, with a good professional or community reputation and agree to uphold high moral and ethical standards in their personal, business and community life.
