About us

Welcome to Stokesley Rotary Club
North East England

Stokesley is a small North Yorkshire market town on the banks of the River Leven which is home to about 5000 people. The town, with a lovely Georgian market square is only around four miles from the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and about 15 miles from the pretty Yorkshire coastal resort of Saltburn. 

The Club and what we do

The Club was founded in 1980 and comprises members who volunteer their skills and expertise across a variety of areas to activate diverse programmes which benefit local and international communities. Over the years the Club has raised and distributed thousands of pounds and instigated many home and overseas projects.

The Club meets on Tuesday evenings in the Blacksmith’s Arms in Swainby. Guests and prospective members are always welcome. (stokesleyrotary.org.uk). We frequently invite speakers to our meetings, usually related to our objective of providing service to others, but sometimes of general interest. We also have an ongoing programme of outside social visits and community projects.

Please take a look at the programme options to see what we’ve done in the past, and what we plan for the future – you may like to join or support us.
