The Rotary Club of Stokesley received its Charter in 1980
Following our very first meeting of 6 interested contacts in the first week in January 1980, the fledgling group steadily grew under the tutorship of PDG Gordon Wilson and Rotarian Leslie Martin (RC of Guisborough and Great Ayton.)
Both the inaugural meeting and charter meeting were very well attended by clubs in District 1030, and in September 1980 the Rotary Club of Stokesley and District stood on its own feet with 32 new Rotarians, with an average age in the mid-40's.
Very quickly, the new club established itself in the community of Stokesley and nearby villages, with an annual Easter bookshop in the High Street, which is now a regular event for all would be 'book-worms'.
Contact was soon made with the local secondary school, and in addition to Rotarians' 'job talks' at the school, a mock 'job interviews' schedule was agreed with the Careers and Guidance department at the school. This schedule has continued uninterrupted ever since, proving to be beneficial to the students and very rewarding to those Rotarians able to take part.
