On behalf of all my fellow members of The Rotary Club of Bolsover, welcome to our Club website.


It is amazing that already we are nearly a third of the way through my year as President.  I’m very pleased that we have been able to continue the work of our Community Grants scheme, supporting local groups with their projects.Some of the groups we have helped already this year are:

  • Derbyshire Carers – sending young carers on a Christmas trip to Chatsworth
  • 4th Bolsover Scouts who wanted to buy some camping equipment
  • Glapwell Gladiators FC who needed new kit
  • Bolsover Civic Society
  • Hillstown Miners Welfare

We have also helped people in distress abroad – we paid for a community Aquabox to be sent to the Bahamas following the devastation caused by Hurrican Dorian in September.

Plans are underway for our annual Christmas collection, and as usual we shall be hosting Santa on his journeys around the area during December.  For the first time, this year we shall be able to accept contactless payments from people who want to donate but don’t carry cash. My thanks go to Mintdale Engineering Ltd for kindly sponsoring the cost of setting up this facility.

Watch out for news of our events in and around Bolsover during the year.

We are always looking for new members, who have the enthusiasm and community sprit to become good Rotarians. If you want a challenge why not think about how you can contribute to The Rotary Effect?

Contact me by email on president@bolsover-rotary.org.uk if you would like to come to a club night as my guest. I can guarantee you a very warm welcome.

David Coupe

President 2019/20
