Amwell Rotary Club

Amwell Rotary Club is part of the worldwide fellowship of Rotary Clubs that makes up Rotary International.

Rotary clubs are firmly based within local communities, with their members meeting on a regular basis to enjoy friendship, networking, and to plan projects that will benefit the lives of others.

Rotary International

We work to give something back to our communities - locally, nationally and globally.

We always welcome enquiries from like minded people who want to find out more about us, about who we are and what we do.

What happens at meetings?

Usually we will have a guest speaker - although roughly once every two months we will hold club committee meetings. Following committee meetings, we will then have a business meeting a week or two after.

Our Satellite Group meet more informally once a month to discuss projects and activities.

Amwell Sports Satellite Group

They remain full members of Amwell Rotary Club and are free to come along to the main Monday Meetings whenever they want.

There are more details HERE

The fellowship we enjoy over a meal or a beer and a chat, and the friendships that grow from that, reflect in the many and varied service projects we undertake and the other good causes that we support each and every year.

Interested?

Then why not CONTACT us to arrange to come along to one of our meetings as our guest?

We may well surprise you as there really is rather more to us than just meeting once a week for dinner!

Where is Amwell?

Great Amwell is a small village in the county of Hertfordshire, England, some twenty miles North of London.

Great Amwell

When Amwell Rotary Club was formed, the name was chosen as being pretty much at the midway point between the three already existing Clubs - Hertford, Ware and Hoddesdon.

Now as then though, our membership is mainly drawn from the larger towns and villages in the surrounding area.

A Good Year for the Roses!

 A little while ago, Amwell Rotary Club were delighted to support the Friends of Danesbury and Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital with a donation of Roses to brighten up the garden area. 

We’ve now received these photos to show how they have flourished, along with a lovely message telling us much they are appreciated by the patient's and the staff.

Our first face to face meeting since March of last year - and at a new venue. Our thanks to everyone at Hertford Rugby Football Club for making us all very welcome!

Although our Club Officers took up their new roles as of July 1st, this was the first chance we have had for the Club Regalia to be passed on.

Polio Eradication

We believe that the world is on the brink of seeing "the very last case of polio"

Rotary International has been focusing on eradicating the disease for over 30 years.

End Polio Now!

Eradicating the last few cases is a big challenge as they are in countries where transporting and delivering the vaccine is often disrupted by civil war, conflict and local hostility

Despite this, the number of cases is falling dramatically due to fantastic work from Rotarians around the world.

STOP PRESS!

Thanks to dedicated @Rotary members, health workers, donors, local & national leaders, and partners, the @WHOAFRO region is officially wild polio-free!

African Region certified wild polio free

The Rotary Foundation

The Rotary Foundation marked it's centenary in 2017.

An endowment fund, set up by Rotarians in 1917 with an initial contribution of $26.50, became a not for profit corporation known as The Rotary Foundation in 1928.

The Rotary Foundation - 100 Years

Upon the death of our founder, Paul Harris, in 1947, a massive influx of Rotarian donations made in his honour - totalling some US$2 million - launched the Foundation's first programme, graduate fellowships, later to be known as Ambassadorial Scholarships and now Rotary Global Scholars.

Today, contributions to the foundation total more than US$80 million each year and support a wide range of humanitarian grants and educational programs that enable Rotarians to bring hope and promote international understanding throughout the world.
