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
Langport & Somerton Rotary Club is delighted to be supporting the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance by organising a Charity Summer Ball on 13th May 2017.
This special event will be held at The Edgar Hall, Somerton and include a glass of fizz on arrival, 3-course Dinner, entertainment supplied "Rod Stewart" tribute, raffle & auction and dancing until 12.30.
We look forwward to welcoming members and friends & families, supporters of the Air Ambulance, fans of the music of Rod Stewart and of course our Rotary friends from other Clubs.
With tickets priced at only £30 we think this event offers great value for money while staill raising much-needed funds for the Air Ambulance that one day might be needed to save you or your family.
Please contact the President, Mike Gillingham on 07889 130495 to reserve your tickets
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 a Burns Night Supper, a speaker on Wines & Vineyards and a special treat hearing the Glastonbury Festival Founder, Michael Eavis CBE speak to the Club.
