Rotary Club of Exmoor

Exmoor Rotary: Events

The club organises a number of events throughout the year. Some are for fun, some are youth projects, and some are to raise funds for charities. The largest event we run is the Rotary Exmoor Youth Challenge in which over 400 young people are involved.

 

Briton Street on Fair Day

BAMPTON CHARTER FAIR

The club is now highly involved in the organisation of the historic Bampton Charter Fair which is enjoyed by many thousands of visitors in October. We take part in the event to help the local community, and also to raise funds for charity.

The last Thursday in October

A national competition based up a public meeting. Teams of three pupils where one introduces the speaker, one gives a talk on a chosen topic for 5 minutes, and one thanks the speaker. In this area we have pupils from Years 6-7.
