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.

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.

Weekly Meeting 2017

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.

Annual Carol Service

A big Thank You to everyone who came to the Rotary Carol Service held in the splendid surroundings of Haileybury School Chapel on December 18th 

Annual Carol Service

The Retiring collection amounted to £660.00 which we have rounded up to £1,000.00 and donated to the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.

It’s only because of the tremendous generosity of everyone who supports our fundraising activities that these donations are possible.

Once again, thank you from everyone at Amwell Rotary.

Santa's Sleigh

Father Christmas agreed to visit Ware and Hoddesdon again this year to help us with our Christmas collections.

Thanks to everyone who donated and expecial thanks to ASDA in Ware and Morrisons in Hoddesdon for allowing Santa to park his sleigh in their stores.

Thank You Amwell Rotary!

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.

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.

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.

Rotary Global Scholars

We were delighted to welcome Ngozi Elobuika , one of the Rotary Global Scholars being hosted by Rotary District 1260 this year, to one of our recent meetings.

Ngozi gave us an excellent presentation based on her studies and her practical experience working on health and development projects in Africa.

Thank You for taking the time to visit!

Ngozi Elobuika

Ngozi is pictured here with Amwell Rotary Club President Mike Cooper.

Proud to be Rotarians

The Rotary International Theme 2019 - 2020

RI President-elect Mark Daniel Maloney’s theme for 2019-20, Rotary Connects the World, asks Rotarians to strengthen the many ways that Rotary Connects the World, building the connections that allow talented, thoughtful, and generous people to unite and take meaningful action through Rotary service.

Rotary is built on connection. When Paul Harris came to Chicago as a young lawyer, he formed Rotary for one compelling reason: to help him connect to others in a new city. More than a century later, we have at our disposal countless ways to form friendships and networks, most of which Paul Harris never dreamed. Yet Rotary’s ability to connect us remains unique — and unrivalled.
