Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Haworth & Worth Valley. Our Rotary Club started in 1999 and since that time has become a major contributor to local, national and international communities.
We are situated high in the moors of West Yorkshire. Haworth is famous as the home of the Bronte sisters who lived at the Bronte Parsonage just behind the church at the top of the cobbled main street.
The area is renowned for its outstanding beauty, with the walks across the Penistone Hill and across the moors to Top Withens via the Bronte Bridge and Falls together with scenic rides on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway there are plenty of things for all the family.
The area is regularly used for film locations, especially period settings such as 1969/70 EMI Production "The Railway Children" centered on Oakworth station and more recently the BBC TV production ' To Walk Invisible' was filmed in and around the Haworth area with many scenes taken in Haworth Main Street and on the moors above Haworth
The Rotary Club actively support the local community through projects such as:
Local schools writing and photographic competitions,
Hosting tea parties for the elderly,
Supporting local charities such as the Salvation Army,
Managing a Community Garden
Taking children on Kids Out days.
We regularly take part in local events, such as the extremely popular Haworth 40's Weekend where we "Pluck the Duck" and "Shear the Sheep", whioch gives a great opportunity to discuss and promote the values of Rotary within our community.
Haworth is a fabulous place to visit and we will always welcome prospective new members and visiting Rotarians.

Dateline 28th March 2017
Anne Wells of Carers Resource came back to the Club to express the thanks from the Young Carers that benefitted from our Club donation towards a trip to London for eight young carers and two support workers.
Anne explained that the young people had a fantastic day after a train journey down from Skipton.
They started at the Imperial War Museum before visiting the London Eye and being taken on a tour of the Houses of Parliament and House of Lords, courtesy of Julian Smith, MP for Skipton and Ripon.
But mostly experiencing the sights and sounds of London made a truly memorable day for them all.
