President Leigh Mitchell
The first meeting of our Rotary Club of Bristol was held in 1917 making Bristol the first Rotary Club in the south-west. We are now, going into 2017, a club of 60 members.
Here on our website there is up to to date information about our meetings which are held at The Bristol Hotel on Mondays - some lunches, some evenings.
We are active in serving the communities of Bristol and those further afield such as in Nepal, through links with Pokhara Fishtail and The Pahar Trust Nepal. Over the years we have managed to assist in providing clean water, in fundraising to tackle prostate cancer and in supporting school building projects.
Our Club has also joined with Rotary worldwide to become heavily involved in the Polio Plus campaign initiated in1984. At that time there were hundreds of thousands of cases reported and then Rotary joined with The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to establish the Polio eradication programme which has reduced the number of polio cases across the world to 17 in just 2 countries.
If if you are interested to find out more about Rotary please come along to one of our meetings - everyone is most welcome.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
Equally, if you are a Rotarian visiting Bristol, either for business or pleasure, please contact us and you will be made most welcome at a Club meeting.

Go on give us a try - join the 54,000 Rotarians in the UK, making a difference in communities - local, national & international - and having fun doing it.
We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you.
