Thank you for visiting our website.

The Rotary Club of Bristol continues to attract more members each year to work with us to improve the lives of communities near and far. It is another new year for Rotary as we run from July to July. Each year Rotary International has a theme and this year’s is
'Rotary Connects The World’. 

We will certainly be continuing to do our bit to connect people keen to help local and international communities.  It is a privilege to be able to say that we are looking at projects in Nepal, Nicaragua, Mozambique and Ukraine as well as maintaining our friendship links with clubs in Bordeaux, Hannover, Oporto and Stockholm.  Since joining Rotary I have been able to attend club meetings in 14 different countries.

Not forgetting our local communities, we will continue to work with our Meadow Vale community, continue cleaning up and making the harbour a safer place, supporting small local charities and offering  our time for volunteering where needed.
Our young people locally are also a priority for us. We are fortunate to see and bring out the best in them through a range of competitions and activities – music, writing, technology, public speaking and leadership skills all feature in our work with young people.

New members are always welcome and I can truly say – join Rotary and see the world, whilst contributing to your local community, meeting new friends and giving something back.
Our meetings are over either a lunch or an evening meal at the Bristol Hotel.
Come and join us at one of our meetings, you will be most welcome.

Our History

Our club was the first Rotary Club formed in the south west. We celebrated our centenary in style in November 2017 with a thanksgiving service and champagne reception for 100 and a Centenary Ball for 500. We commemorated our first 100 years with a special centenary project raising £100,000 for refurbishment of a community building in Meadow Vale, Bristol.

Major Projects of the Past

We have been involved in several major projects both locally and internationally including Run For The Future.

Raising awareness about Prostate Cancer, Run For The Future was an annual 5k family fun run on the Downs from 2006 to 2015 raising over £280K for research at local hospitals & universities and more importantly increasing awareness & changing perceptions amongst men so that many more now seek advice.
