Who We Are

Pembroke Rotary is part of a world-wide organisation.   1.2 million Rotarians in 34,000 clubs in 200 countries make Rotary one of the world’s largest charitable organisations.

Its resources, abilities and commitment of its members are used to support major international programmes.  Did you know that Rotary has contributed over a billion dollars to the End Polio Now campaign  to eradicate the scourge of polio from this planet?  Its symbol is the purple crocus and this is our display of crocuses at Scolton Manor to mark Pembroke Rotary’s support of this campaign.

Within this worldwide organisation every Rotary club is an autonomous, self-run group committed to its local community.

Pembroke Rotary Club

We’re looking for more men and women of all ages and backgrounds to join Pembroke Rotary.   More people using their time, talents, professional skills and energy can improve the lives of more people in our local community and others around the world.

By belonging to Pembroke Rotary you will meet new friends, be inspired and get a special sense of fulfilment from being involved with something really worthwhile.

Where We Meet

We meet weekly at either the Lamphey Hall Hotel (lunch meeting on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays or evening meeting at The Helm, Pembroke Dock on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays) to enjoy a good meal, good company, and to plan and manage the club’s activities.

What We Do

We fundraise each year to enable us to support local community groups and charities and the wider international community.   Our most successful fundraiser this year was “A Night at the Proms” on the 6th April.

 

Swing the Castle

Imagine a balmy Pembrokeshire summer’s evening, sitting on the grass inside an actual castle, a glass of wine or beer, burgers and sausages from the bbq and dancing to the music of the RinTins – a leading ‘Gypsy Jazz’ band – plus supporting musicians.

This is our family fundraiser – children and dogs are part of the fun  Bring a chair or a blanket and watch the sun go down at Manorbier Castle.

Friday 9th August.

 

Helping our Community

As well as financial support our Club enables local organisations to raise money for themselves.

Each year, our  Club sponsors and organises a Community Raffle.

The Club donates the cash prize pool while local businesses generously donate other raffle prizes.

In 2018 twelve community groups participated in the raffle and together raised nearly £5,000 to support their activities.

 

Youth Initiatives – RYLA and our Youth Competitions

Rotary strongly encourages personal development for all young people.

Our  Club  supports the Rotary Young Leaders Awards (RYLA) course which develops confidence, social awareness and leadership skills.

Outdoor activities, problem solving challenges and social activities make for a demanding but rewarding week for up to five students each year chosen from Ysgol Harri Tudur.     By the end of the week new friendships have been forged, personal aspirations met or exceeded and all the young people without fail say that they will never forget the experience.

Rotary also runs several national Youth Competitions.  Pembroke Rotary supports the Young Chef, Young Musician, Youth Speaks and Young Writer competitions.

New Youth Technical Tournament

Schools compete in a design and implementation project.   This year it was to build a working crane.
Teams were assessed on teamwork, their idea development, portfolio, manufacture and design and finally how well their design worked!

Drug Awareness Workshops

Each year Pembroke Rotary facilitates a drug awareness programme in the local primary schools to help children be aware of the dangers of drugs before their transition to a larger school.  Sponsored by Valero and run by Theatr Fforwm Cymru this is a unique initiative  run only by Pembroke Rotary.
