It is a great honour and pleasure to have been elected President of such an active Rotary club as Exe Valley and to take over the reigns for 2020-21. I acknowledge my predecessor's success in leading the club over the last year and in adapting us so quickly to the Covid pandemic, to lockdown, and to the need to completely change our format so that we now have virtual video "meetings" while awaiting the ability to resume our normal Wednesday evening meetings at the Hartnoll Inn.
With nearly fifty members we are one of the largest local clubs and are renowned for the fellowship and friendliness of our members.
In recent years we have been able to raise significant monies for charity through our popular Uffculme Show and other events and it is most unfortunate but had to cancel our events for 2020 due to the pandemic (as have many other organisations).
This coming year has one certainty, that is "containing uncertainty" (of what we will able to do, and when), so we must look to work differently to pursue the aims of Rotary and to raise money and support our local community and charities.
If you may be interested in finding out more about Exe Valley Rotary, or attending as a guest, do contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Youu will be very welcome.
Yours in Rotary
Dr David Jenner

Whether you are a visiting or prospective Rotarian, or a member of the public looking up details of our forthcoming events, you are welcome to browse here to see who we are and what we do. Rotary is a high profile international organisation but members of Exe Valley Rotary Club (a registered charity) are real local people having fun but trying to do a bit of good in their local community.
We are an evening Club and (when not in social isolation) would normally meet for dinner most Wednesdays - usually at the Hartnoll Hotel, Bolham, Nr Tiverton - at 7.45 for 8.00pm. Please note there is also a lunchtime club hosted by Tiverton Rotary Club and their details can be found here

Virtual meetings continue each Wednesday
Visiting Rotarians both from the UK and around the world, are welcome to join Exe Valley's meetings, though advance notice
