What is Salisbury Rotary Club?
Rotary is about making new friends and engaging socially, and working on a variety of community related projects and activities.
Our objective is simple: to help those who are not so fortunate both within the local Salisbury community, nationwide and worldwide. We have around 45 members – both men and women – who have a common purpose to make a difference to people’s lives. And, also have some fun at the same time.
The Club has various Committees that help to ensure that we achieve what we have agreed. Each committee may have one or more projects to be undertaken – and you may be asked to run or help with one of these. What we aim to do is get you involved in projects in which you are interested, or have a particular skill or expertise or have good contacts. You can of course get involved in more than one project. It really is all about doing what you can and where you can.
The Rotary year runs from July to June. In order to manage the club and its activities we need a committee comprising of our Club officers and our Project Leaders.
What We’ve been up to
Club Annual Programme
The Club splits its activities through various Programmes and Projects, each of whom will report on progress to members on a monthly basis. You are always more than welcome to hep out in one or more of these, depending where your interests, skills and expertise lie.
Our Programmes generally align with those set out by Rotary International.
Social & Fundraising
This committee is at the heart of all the social events and fundraising activities that the Club undertakes. These might include, for example: Fish ‘n Chips Quiz, Annual BBQ, Skittles Night, Theatre Evening, Christmas Dinner, Safari Supper etc. See the News and Events pages to see what we are planning and have been up to.
Community & Vocational & Funding Grants
Community & Vocation is the traditional and public face of Rotary – giving help and assistance to those in need in our local community – either directly or through charitable support or donations and through other organisations.
International aims to put into practice the Rotary international guiding principle: “the advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service”.
Youth Service aims to support young people within the community by developing the skills, confidence and experience.
A Message from our President
Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Salisbury.
I have been a member of the Club since 2008 and it is an honour to be its 97th President.
Rotary is where neighbours, friends, and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders, and take action to create lasting change. For me, being a Rotarian is about helping others, whether that is by improving their lives or caring enough to make a difference, wherever that may be. I am proud that Salisbury Rotary Club has made a real difference.
My commitment as a Rotarian has enriched and enhanced my life – the friendship, advice and support are truly appreciated. Our aim continues to be to support our local community in what they need.
I am looking forward to getting involved with the existing projects, creating new ones and enjoying the social activities. Together we will endeavour to make our club user friendly and all embracing. We do need new members who want to put something back into their community and benefit those who are not so fortunate in life. We simply ask that you use your skills, expertise and knowledge when and where you can – and we guarantee you will also have some fun at the same time.
If you are like-minded, and would like to help your community then please get in touch. We are always looking for new Rotarians to join our thriving club. It only takes one phone call or email to us to enable you to put ‘Service above Self’.
