About us

 

WELCOME TO ABERAERON ROTARY CLUB

A'R CYLCH

Our Club is part of Rotary International, which is the largest worldwide service organisation. In Britain and Ireland alone there are 55,000 Rotarians in 1,850 clubs.

Our club is made up of men and women who freely volunteer their time and their individual skills in following the Rotary motto of 'Service Above Self'. This is the way that Rotarians give something back to their communities. Our informal approach leads to an atmosphere which engenders fun and fellowship. It is also an ideal opportunity to increase your circle of friends and also possibly learn a new skill. 

Our club is small, fun and vibrant with 15 members. We meet weekly at 7.00pm on Thursday evenings at TyGlyn Restaurant & Conference Centre. Our monthly programme includes bi-monthly Business Meetings; Speaker Nights on a wide and diverse range of topics; Fellowship Nights for some fun and games; Committee meetings;  and Social Evenings at a show or an outside visit. 

We involve ourselves in our local community, helping out with things like Meals on Wheels, Reading Scheme at Aberaeron Primary School, Cilcennin Carnival & Fun Day, Community Christmas, Aberaeron Carnival, the Welsh Cob Show and the Aeron Valley Vintage show.

A priority for this year is the involvement in projects with the disabled. The Club will continue to support young people with Kids Day Out, Young Musician, Young Chef, Youth Speaks and many more. The Club also continues to sponsor and support Ysgol Gyfun Aberaeron Interact Club which is going from strength to strength. 

Funds are raised for charitable organisations both local and international. Our Summer street collection is used to fund local project(s), this year being Mencap. We have previously helped in the refurbishment of outdoor picnic tables and benches at Aberaeron Junior School and, during 2016 supplied a 'sun sail' tp afford shade from the sun. We have also supplied funding for equipment for St John's.

Each Christmas the Club has held a street collection which, for a number of years has benefited Air Ambulance Wales, raising in the region of £1,000 each year. At times of local, national or international disasters we also raise funds to help. We gave £1,000 to the Ceredigion Flood Appeal. We are support world-wide international appeals, such as End Polio Now.

On top of this and just as importantly we enjoy fellowship and especially fun. If you are aged between 21 and 101 and would like to learn more about us or join us for an evening contact me or any of our officers.
