Haslemere is a small market town with a population of approximately 15,000 people, and is situated in the far south west corner of Surrey, adjacent to the borders of Hampshire and West Sussex. There are many half timbered buildings and pretty cottages along its High Street. The town sits beneath the prominent hill of Blackdown (920ft) and is surrounded by woodland and heathland mostly owned by the National Trust, and is considered one of the gems of the Surrey Hills area of outstanding natural beauty. Haslemere got its name from the hazel trees which surround a lake (mere) which is thought to have been on a site near to the present High Street. The first known habitation was recorded in 180 A.D. where the parish church of St Bartholomew's stands today.

Famous people who have resided here in the past include authors and poets. Lord Tennyson, Conan Doyle, George Bernard Shaw and George Elliot, have all enjoyed living in the town. In more recent times, Haslemere Rotary Club has been twinned with St Jean d' Angeley

Haslemere Rotary Club meets each Thursday at the Georgian House Hotel in the High St. at 7.30pm. The club serves not only Haslemere but also Liphook, Grayswood, Grayshott, Hindhead, Chiddingfold and surrounding villages. We are always ready to welcome prospective new members, both male and female, who wish to put something back into the community, enjoy friendship, and aim to have fun whilst helping others. The Rotary Club of Haslemere was formed and chartered on May 30th 1935, our 80th anniversary took place on May 30th 2015. We meet weekly for dinner, whilst enjoying a social evening and fellowship. Most weeks we have a speaker covering a wide variety of subject matter.

In recent years we have raised over £100,000 as a result of our fund raising events. This has enabled the club to make donations to many local and international charities and projects. During the year we organise events, activities, and street collections from which we are able to make donations to deserving causes.
