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 College Arms
40 London Road
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.
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.
June 27th saw our Presidents Handover meeting. Outgoing President Roger handed over the President's Chain of Office to incoming President Sheila.
Thanks from all of us at Amwell Rotary to Roger for leading the club through the past 12 months - and best wishes to Sheila for the coming Rotary year!
Paul Harris Fellowships
Congratulations to Amwell Rotarians Chris A and Graham B who were presented with well deserved Paul Harris Fellowship Awards at our meeting on June 27th to mark their many year's of Rotary Service.
St Paul's, London to Paris
10 years on from the first time a group of keen cyclists came together to cycle from St Paul’s London to Paris, one of the events that led to the formation of the Amwell Sports Satellite Group, some of the original participants took on the challenge of a repeat performance over the jubilee weekend.
A social event that advertised Rotary – and proved they were still up to it – the ride was a great fellowship event. Thanks to Amwell Rotarians Paul M and Colin S for manning the support vehicle.

World Parkinson's Day
April 11th is World Parkinson's Day and we were delighted to welcome Michelle Henderson from Parkinson's UK to our meeting that evening.
Michelle told us more about the work Parkinson's UK do and how they are using the day to increase awareness of the condition.
On behalf of Amwell Rotary Club, President Roger presented her with a cheque for £1,000.00 to help fund this important work.
The Ronde van Amwell
Huge thanks to all of the riders who took part in the Ronde van Amwell on April 3rd 2022. Organised by our Satellite Group, this event was run in aid of Mind in Mid Herts.
In June of 2021 one of our members lost a close family member due to mental health issues. Ben Pegram was just twenty three when he died. We do not want other families to suffer this tragedy.
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.

Thanks to dedicated @Rotary members, health workers, donors, local & national leaders, and partners, the @WHOAFRO region is officially 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.
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.

RI President Jennifer Jones imagines a Rotary where members act to make their dreams become reality and they make the most of their club experiences.
She urges members to engage more with each other and use these connections to build partnerships that change the world.
