The Rotary Club of Gloucester Severn - Registered Charity No. 1068951
Formed in 1983, we are a very active Rotary Club, supporting local, national and international causes through a programme of fund raising. We also have a very active sporting and social calendar.
Our club, of over 50 members, meets weekly at the Hallmark Hotel in Matson, in the evening, and our ethos is based on the three core principles of fun, fellowship and fundraising. We have a wide variety of interesting speakers, as well as Vocational talks from some of our own members.
Why not come along and hopefully join us? You would be made very welcome. If you are interested, click on the 'Join Rotary' graphic above we will arrange for someone to accompany you.

Boxing Evening - Friday 10 February 2017
To be held at Sir Thomas Rich School again! Watch this space!
Sporting Dinner - 7 July 2016
Another fabulous evening of good food, good company and great entertainent, held at the King's School in their Marquee. The speakers were top class acts. Penny Mallory, a world class rally driver, told of her experiences of competing in a male dominated sport and coming out on top. She described her Â£250,000 rally car, a far cry from the standard Ford Focus that it started out as. As she pointed out the only similarity was the indicator stalk and the oval badge on the front!
Penny was followed by Nigel Owens, a top class Rugby referee, who refereed the World Cup final last year. His delivery was world class as well and was enjoyed by the audience, as he described his experiences and his early life in mid Wales.
Dragon Boat Regatta - 8 May 2016
This year the sun shone on the Gloucester Docks where 30 teams battled it out morning and afternoon in the colourful Dragon Boats.
The eventual winners were 'CF Roberts Crusaders' in the morning session and 'The Boating Baa Baa's' in the afternoon, with awards going to teams dressed as 'Super Heroes' and 'Star Wars Super Troopers', plus best mixed teams too. However, it is not about who wins, its all about the event and our club certainly does us proud! There was live music throughout the afternoon which kept the crowds entertained, with numerous stalls on hand, plus a mini golf set up and a fun fair. Our own Rotary run bookstall raised over 200! The actual amount won't be known for several weeks, but no doubt, it will be a significant sum.
Thank you to all our entrants, from the Rotary Club of Gloucester Severn.
