The Rotary Club of Yatton and District welcomes you to its web pages. We are sure you will find it interesting and give you an insight to your local Rotary Club.
Yatton is a large village situated in North Somerset and some six miles east of Weston super Mare, a well known holiday resort. Yatton's population has grown over the past few years and is now in excess of 9,000 It has become a sought after location to live for people working in Bristol and the surrounding areas.
The origin of the name Yatton is uncertain. It may come from the Anglo-Saxon 'gatton' meaning 'village on the track'; the track in question is a path of limestone leading from Cadbury Hill The village has at one time or another been called Jatune, Eaton (from ea (river) and tun i.e. the settlement on the River Yeo and Yatton Blewitt, and is recorded as Lature in the Doomsday Book
The Yatton skyline is dominated by the Church of St Mary and can be seen from many miles away.
Yatton is situated on a main railway line with good services to London, Bristol and Weston super Mare. Trains to the north of England can be accessed via connections at Bristol.
The Rotary Club of Yatton and district was Chartered in 1995. We are a small club consisting of only 13 members but we punch above our weight, raising over £14,000 for charity in 2009-2010
We meet at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at Cadbury, which is located as you leave the village on the B3133 towards Congresbury. Please see the side bar on the right for exact times.
This hotel is often used by passengers using Bristol Airport which is only a short distance away. It is also used by the airport for delayed passengers and if you are a Rotarian we would welcome you on our club night if you happen to be at the hotel.
