About us

The Rotary Club of Aylsham is a group of people who meet weekly to have fun whilst helping communities both here and abroad.  We have a great variety of social events throughout the year and work hard to both raise money and contribute to the local, national and international community. Great friendships grow from working and socialising together.

Mike Downes is the Club President for 2018/2019.

July 1st marks the beginning of new Rotary year and a new President for the Rotary Club of Aylsham. Mike Downes has the honour of leading the club for a second time, having been President before in 2006/7. Mike Says:

"I really did not expect to be doing this job again but I am pleased to take it on as a real priviledge to be the President of such a friendly, active and hard working club. With only 23 members, the Rotary Club of Aylsham manages to achieve a huge amount through the hard work and community spirit of all its members. With the generousity of the people of Aylsham and district, we manage to raise a lot of money each year to support local, national and international good causes. Most importantly, we are a COMMUNITY club and our ethos over the years has moved more and more to working with the community to improve, support and sustain the excellent work done with people across all age groups.

It is my aim to work more with the community to make Aylsham an even better place to live and to strengthen the work we do with schools to reinforce the wonderful work they are doing through the Aylsham Cluster Trust, for all our young people.

Our club has changed and continues to change, as all organisations must to survive and prosper in the 21st century. No longer are we the exclusive club for business people to have a long lunch! We are a mixed group of local people who really enjoy working together to make the world a better place. Most importantly, we enjoy it as well, combining hard work with a great social life.
