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.

There are more details about Rotary membership HERE

Weekly Meetings

Amwell Rotary Club meet each Monday (Bank Holidays excepted) at 6.45 pm for 7:30 pm sharp at

The Salisbury Arms Hotel

Fore Street

Hertford

SG14 1BZ

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.

The fellowship we enjoy over a meal or a beer and a chat, and the friendships that grow from that, reflect in the 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.

Carols at Haileybury

A huge thank you to everyone who came along to the Rotary Carol Service at Haileybury on Monday 18th December!

We were particularly pleased to welcome friends from Always Bee You, a Hertfordshire based charity enabling adults with learning disabilities and mental health issues to access the opportunities, skills and support they need to live fulfilled lives.

The proceeds from the retiring collection will be donated to Always Bee You, our President's nominated charity for his year in office.

President Graham is pictured below with some of the group after the service.

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!

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.

February is: -

Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution Month

Today, over 70 million people are displaced as a result of conflict, violence, persecution, and human rights violations. Half of them are children.

We refuse to accept conflict as a way of life. Rotary projects provide training that fosters understanding and provides communities with the skills to resolve conflicts.

Rotary creates environments of peace 

Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution Month

As a humanitarian organization, peace is a cornerstone of our mission. We believe when people work to create peace in their communities, that change can have a global effect. 

By carrying out service projects and supporting peace fellowships and scholarships, our members take action to address the underlying causes of conflict, including poverty, discrimination, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources. 

Our commitment to peacebuilding today answers new challenges: how we can make the greatest possible impact and how we can achieve our vision of lasting change. We are approaching the concept of peace with greater cohesion and inclusivity, broadening the scope of what we mean by peacebuilding, and finding more ways for people to get involved.

 Rotary creates environments where peace can happen.
