About us

This welcoming club of men and women was founded in 1995 and meets most Tuesday nights at The Fromeway, a family run pub in Radstock.

The 20 members, from a diverse range of backgrounds, currently include an accountant, architect,  estate agent , engineers,  IT professional,  pharmacist, surveyor and company directors. Some  of us work full-time, some have their own businesses and some are retired.

Club activities split into three areas: socialising, fundraising and providing funds and practical help to youth groups, communities and disadvantaged individuals.

Socialising includes skittles and boules evenings; trips to Europe; visiting beer festivals, museums and events, an annual Charter Night dinner, parties at members' homes and taking part in or helping at events organised by neighbouring Rotary Clubs in the District such as the Exmoor Challenge walk.

Our biggest fundraising events are the annual Wessex Beer Festival which we hold each year in early September, the new Midsomer Norton Gin and Craft Cider Festival and stewarding at the Glastonbury Festival.

Our community involvement includes cooking the BBQ at the annual Timsbury Cheshire Home fete, coach trips for senior citizens to the seaside and for disadvantaged children to the Kids Out event at Longleat, stewarding at village events, Bath Half-Marathon  and Norton Fayre, selling poppies and collecting at Norton Carnival.

Our youth work includes helping local schools with the Business Enterprise course, and the Big Pitch, and each year the club sends 2 teenage students on the  RYLA course organised by the district and held on Dartmoor in February half-term, to develop leaders of the future.

Our chosen charity this year is Time is Precious and we help each other with events including the Beer and Gin Festivals and the launch of Ben's Gift in September.

The club has purchased and installed defibrillators at Radstock, Chilcompton, Coleford, Kilmersdon and Peasedown and recently made a donation of £500 towards a new defibrillator for Shoscombe.
