Gordano Breakfast Rotary Club is a relatively new club having been formally recognised by Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland in March 2015. The club set up a charitable Trust in February 2018 to separate our fundraising activities from the day to day running of the club. The Trust was registered with the UK Charity Commission in August 2018 as ROTARY CLUB OF GORDANO BREAKFAST TRUST FUND. Our charity registration number is 1179753. We currently have 20 members with most members playing an active part in the club. We are a member of Rotary District 1100.
We usually meet for breakfast twice per month in the restaurant of Brewer’s Fayre, Gordano Gate, Portishead with a speaker meeting on the first Thursday of the month and a business meeting on the third Thursday. Meetings start at about 7:15am and end at 8:30 am to allow members to get to work. We have moved to online meetings via Zoom during the Covid-19 lockdown. As a new club, we have dispensed with many of the formalities of many longer established club
