About us

-

The village of Yelverton is located almost at the centre of the area covered by our Club membership.  

As we are a Club which only meets in the evening, our membership is open to people living in areas covered by other Clubs, who might otherwise be unable to regularly attend lunchtime meetings.  We have men and women members who enjoy the relaxed and unhurried atmosphere of an evening Club with pleasant surroundings in convivial company.

Weekly meetings are held at the Prince of Wales in Princetown, where a two-course meal is available at a reasonable cost. The meetings vary between fun social, business and in house or invited speaker evenings. All who visit enjoy an evening of friendship and congeniality, with a good deal of friendly banter and much good work for local, national and international charities. Locally we support Scout and Guide groups, football teams, schools, the Rotary Youth Leadership scheme, Kids Out, CHICKS, Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, Children's Hospice SW and many others. 

Our main areas for the collection and distribution of funds cover the Villages of Bere Alston, Bere Ferrers, Buckland Monachorum, Horrabridge, Meavy, Princetown, Walkhampton and Yelverton. 

We contribute to national disaster charities and charities proposed by other Clubs. Internationally we have provided a solar powered refrigerator for a mountain village in Nepal and have sponsored Emergency Boxes and filled Aqua Boxes and their derivatives. We also contribute to the vital work undertaken by the Rotary International movement to eradicate the scourge of polio from the World.

Committee chairs announced continuing support this year for the O.A.P.s' Spring Tea Party, car boot sales, a Goose Fair stall, an Art Exhibition and the annual Christmas collections.  Internationally, we will continue our support for Shelterbox and Overseas Vision-Aid, to which we aim to add support for Life Straws and "Send-a-Cow" scheme.  We have recently completed a Rotary grant assisted Foundation project to provide a well in the village of El Shaddai in Goa.  There are also a projects to support local people and communities, such as continuing to finance two young people per year on the Rotary Youth Leadership Award scheme (RYLA), Young Chef at Princetown Community Primary School and also assistance for various local charities.
