Rotary Clubs throughout the world meet weekly to share fellowship, understand the vocational activities within their community, develop projects to support their community, raise funds for good causes and most importantly HAVE SOME FUN!
Below is our calendar for the coming weeks and months so please come along and join us.
The Dinner meetings are held at the Langport Arms, Langport, as our the Business Meetings (although we do not stay for a meal). As you can see there are a number of other meetings usually later in the month when we try to go "out and about"

So, you thought Rotary can't be fun.
Just imagine a few oily rags, some noisey engines and some spangly motorbikes with no brakes!
This is what greeted Rotarians at a fantastic night of speedway watching Somerset Rebels at the Oaktree Arena, Highbridge.
Nothing more exhilarating than live sport with all bar one of us experiencing professional national speedway for the first time. Noisey, dirty, smelly - not your usual Rotary meeting, but it was fantastic!
Then, just a couple of weeks later we find oursleves peering into the depths of the UK's largest stone quarry - Torr Quarry, Cranmore where Aggregate Industries mine 5m tonnes of stone per year - much of which finds its way into London along their very own railway!
And to cop it off we had the experience of sausage making with Malcolm Pyne at North Petherton - now that was a sticky finger sort of a night out.
Speaking of "nights out" we love a good shin-dig and if we can put on our glad-rags, all the better!
