Your local Rotary Club of Langport and Somerton is an informal friendly Club, forward thinking and open to new ideas from all its members. Prospective members, gentlemen and ladies, are always made welcome. Being part of an international organisation, the Club fundraises for worldwide projects and to provide financial or practical support after disasters but concentrates on the local area, with every Rotarian determined to give something back to their own community. Locally the Club's main fundraising event is providing refreshments for the Tour of Wessex Cycle Race held in late May at the Somerton Recreation Field.
Rotary International, with more than 1.3 million members worldwide, is best summarised by its motto "Service above Self". Its biggest international project has been working over the last 25 years to complete the worldwide eradication of polio, now in collaboration with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Health Organisation.
