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

 

 

SAVE THE DATES


This Rotary year sees three signicant events taking place, so now is the time to "save the date" into your diary.


Thursday 21st December 2017 - Christmas Party - Rotarians and their friends & familes are invited to warm up for the Christmas celebrations with a good old fashioned party at the Langport Arms Ballroom, with food, fun and fancy footwork on the dancefloor.

 

Saturday 24th February 2018 - 70th Birthday Celebrations - with a black-tie dinner at Long Sutton Golf Club featuring entertainment and dancing.


Saturday 19th May 2018 - Summer Charity Ball - returning for a second year at the Edgar Hall, Somerton, with dancing to the internationally renowned 70s icons The Tremeloes.

 

Further details of both events will follow shortly

So, who thought Rotary isn't fun?

 

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