The Aims of our Club

Community service is the traditional and well-known face of Rotary. From the coconut shy at Lydney Hospital Fete, to the Forest of Dean Trails Half Marathon, and establishing the Great Oaks Hospice, we aim to help all those in our community in need, either directly or through other local charitable organisations. Environmental projects are part of community service.
As occupation is a key element in determining Rotary membership, Vocational service draws on the ethical standards, experience and expertise that Rotarians apply in their work. Vocational projects support training and job development, provide mock interviews in local schools, encourage the development of skills in employment and foster the highest standards in business and the professions.
International service promotes worldwide goodwill. We have provided aid and shelter in times of humanitarian disaster and helped with international schools exchange visits to Kenya and India. Rotary is present in 166 countries worldwide and when rotarians of different race, creed and custom, are brought together in fellowship or service, they play an important part in breaking down prejudice and developing true international understanding.
