Join us at one of our meetings or events

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"

 

Call the Secretary, Clive Sills, on 01458 251399 for more information

So, you thought Rotary isn't fun (1)

 

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 outsleves 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!

 

What a busy summer and autumn we are having!

 

So, who thought Rotary isn't fun (2)?

 

Just picture it, 20 Rotarians descend on Pyne's the Butcher at North Petherton for an informal and informative tour around one of Somerset's largest independant butchery businesses and low and behold, we get the chance to make sausages!

 

Here can be seen the effervescent Wendy Allington "all fingers and thumbs" as she tries to get to grips with the sausage making machine.

 

More fun to come in 2017 and 2018 with an insight to the logistics of Glastonbury Festival, Antiques Roadshow (our way), Croquet & Boules and visits to Torr Quarry and Pitney Organic Farm.

 

 

We meet on Thursdays at 6.30pm
