Rotary International is a world fellowship of business and professional men and women united in the ideal of service. The principles of service, understanding and goodwill are sustained by the fellowship which a Rotarian enjoys with fellow members in a club, and the mutual understanding and relationship which are shared with fellow Rotarians throughout the world.
Ironbridge Club was formed in 1955 and since its formation we have gained a reputation for service and trustworthiness. This year we have a number of prestigious events including hosting a visit to Shropshire of the RIBI President. In November a number of our members will be working in Gambia on a schools project.
We are recognised throughout the Rotary District for our good humour and our friendship in all our activities, which can be wrapping Christmas parcels in Telford Town Centre or sending a work party out to India or Africa to help build schools or hospitals.
Ironbridge Club welcomes both male and female members of all ages and professions, and we actively encourage the involvement of family at all events, both social and service. Visitors always receive a warm welcome.
We Ironbridge Rotarians:-
ï¿½ Welcome new members both men and women
ï¿½ Have a sensible meeting start time
ï¿½ Have a laid back attitude to dress
ï¿½ Have one formal meeting a month at which guests both Rotarian and non-Rotarians are encouraged to attend
ï¿½ Lay on a wide variety of social events including international visits
ï¿½ Believe that being a good and active member is more important than attendance percentage
