Club President’s message

WELCOME TO OUR WEB SITE.

It is an honour to be the 94th President of the Rotary Club of Salisbury.

When I was Club President, seven years ago, our single largest fund raiser was the annual charity Swimathon at Godolphin School. Nowadays, in addition to the Swimathon, we have major events such as the Clarendon Marathon, The Craft Festival in the Cathedral Close and Spireworks.

Working in partnerships with local businesses through the Chamber off Commerce and the Federation of Small Businesses, Salisbury Rotary Club raises significant amounts of money for the local community.

We continue to welcome new members who want to put something back into their community and benefit those who are not so fortunate in life. We simply ask that you use your skills, expertise and knowledge when and where you can – and that you have some fun at the same time.

We currently have 45 members and we meet at the Milford Hall Hotel, Castle Street, Salisbury on the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Mondays at 1800hrs for 1830hrs, and on the 2nd Monday at 1230 for 1300hrs.

We also have a “Friends of Salisbury Rotary Club”, for businesses who wish to play an important part in the community through Rotary..

If you are like minded, and would like to help your community then please get in touch. We are always looking for new Rotarians to join our thriving club.

I am confident that Salisbury Rotary Club will continue to meet the needs of our community. Our strength is in the friendship and fellowship that can be seen at our meetings, something that is frequently commented on by guests and that also led me to return to Rotary membership when I arrived in Salisbury ten years ago.

It only takes one phone call to us to enable you to put ‘Service above Self’.

Bob Dunster

President
