About us

Welcome to the website of Chelmsford Mildmay Rotary Club

Chelmsford Mildmay Rotary Club was founded in 1972 and has been active in the Chelmsford area ever since. We have 22 members, both men and women, all of whom wish to give service to the community and to meet socially as friends.


We meet for lunch every Tuesday at Little Channels, Pratts Farm Lane West, Little Waltham CM3 3PR for a programme of talks, presentations and discussions. This helps keep us aware of ways in which we might be of use, and we raise funds to support various local, national and international causes.

Purple4Polio campaign to End Polio Now 

We have planted 30,000 purple crocuses, in partnership with other clubs, at RHS Hyde Hall as part of the Purple4Polio campaign. One strand of the campaign is an exciting partnership between the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and Rotary to plant six million crocuses across Britain and Ireland.

Computers for schools in Tanzania - last shipment arrived!

Since 2010 we have been involved in a project to send recycled computers from Essex schools and businesses to Tanzania, Africa.  Following the successful shipment of our first three containers, each with 200 computers, printers and other equipment, we have now completed the fourth and final packing of a ship's container with over 300 large boxes of computer equipment and will not therefore be seeking further donations. Very many thanks to everyone who has donated. We have enjoyed tracking the ship's progress to Dar es Salaam - yes it has arrived! And the good news is that the container and its contents has been released to Amani - soon we will learn more of computers being put to good use.  More details here
