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.
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.
There are more details about Rotary membership HERE
Amwell Rotary Club meet each Monday (Bank Holidays excepted) at 7.00 pm for 7:30 pm at
The Salisbury Arms Hotel
Telephone 01992 583091
You can find a map and travel directions to the Salisbury Arms HERE
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.
There are more details HERE
Our Satellite Group meet more informally once a month to discuss projects and activities.
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.

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.
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.
The 2018 Etape d'Amwell
Congratulations to our Amwell Sports Satellite Group for organising another tremendous Etape d'Amwell event on September 9th. Huge thanks as well to all of the cyclists who took part!
Here are a couple of photos from the water station at 112 km on the epic 150 km route braved by some of the riders.

We were delighted to formally welcome another member to Amwell Rotary at our meeting on August 20th.
Great to have you join us David!
The award was presented by Immediate Past President Tennille. and it's fair to say that Graham wasn't expecting it.
Congratulations to David House who was named as Amwell Rotarian of the Year for 2017 - 2018 by outgoing President Tennille.
The Wedgwood Bowl is presented each year and was a gift to the Club from the late Piers Wedgwood, 4th Baron Wedgwood.
Thoroughly well deserved David!
A bit later than most, but we had our President's Handover on August 13th.
A huge thank you from all the members of Amwell Rotary to outgoing President Tennille for leading the club so well over the past year and a bit - and best wishes to incoming President Paul and President Elect Eddy as they start their year in office.

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.
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.
It is within our grasp, we must not rest on our laurels.
If we are successful, it will be only the second disease affecting humans to be eradicated.
The first was smallpox.

Rotary Global Scholars
We were delighted to welcome Rotary Global Grant Scholars Chelsea Phipps and Mima Fondong to meetings recently.
They both gave excellent talks and proved once again just how valuable this Rotary programme is.
Thank you both!
Chelsea is pictured above with President Tennille.
And here's a photo of Mima with Tennille
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.
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 (See above!)
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.

Paul Harris Fellowships
Named after our founder, the Paul Harris Fellowship award marks outstanding service to Rotary or to the community and the club makes a donation to the Foundation in recognition of each award presented.
Congratulations then to Amwell Rotarian Graham Klinkert who was presented with a Paul Harris Fellowship at our meeting on August 20th.
Graham has worked tirelessly to make sure that the annual Ware Fireworks Display has been such a huge success in recent years.
The award was presented by Immediate Past President Tennille. and it's fair to say that Graham wasn't expecting it!

September 2018 is .....
Basic Education & Literacy Month
More than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. That’s 17 percent of the world’s adult population.
Rotary's goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy.
We support education for all children and literacy for children and adults.
Proud to be Rotarians
