Our Club

The Rotary Club of Bolsover meets at Ringwood Hall Hotel, Brimington every Wednesday evening.

Ringwood Hall

The Rotary Club of Bolsover was formed in 1980, and has been active in our Community since then.  As well as supporting local activities, such as Bolsover Gala, the Freedom Community Project and helping local schools, we have also contributed to overseas projects including The Gambia Schools Appeal, The Friends of Kadzinuni, Aquabox, Shelterbox, and other Rotary projects. We have a varied and interesting program of events and speakers throughout the year. 

If you would like to know more about our club, or about becoming a Rotarian please contact us.

and finally...a word from the President

Chris Toyne, Club President

I have to begin this message on a very sad note, following the recent death of our good friend and founder member Dennis Riley.  Our thoughts are with Sheila and their family. 

We are coming to the end of another busy summer.  We supported the Bolsover Gala, the Armed Forces weekend at Poolsbrook, and the inaugural Bolsover Hill Race with both  our new display tent and the ever popular crepes stand.  In the process of helping local good causes, we have had great fun despite some of the weather!  As we move into autumn we are planning our run up to Christmas.  Once again we will be helping Santa to move his sleigh around the area - look out for details.  We will be helping Santa to lead the Lantern Parade on 26th November.

We are coming to the end of the second tranche of our Community Grants for 2016, and it is pleasing to know that so many small local worthwhile projects are sharing in the benefits of Rotary.

I said in my last message that I would like to see at least 2 new members in my year and I am delighted that we are well on the way to achieving that.  I was pleased to welcome Ian Walvin into membership a few weeks ago, and we have another perspective new member waiting in the wings.   if you are interested in coming to see what we do, please ring me on 07968 782005, or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
