Rotary Club of Becton & District

Rotary International is an organisation of approximately 1.2 million members dispersed across 200 countries whose mission is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders. Becton Rotary Club is proud to be a member club of this wonderful organisation and seeks to continue to bring Rotary values to the town of New Milton and its surrounding areas.

We are a recently formed club taking advantage of new operating protocols approved by Rotary International. These protocols enable clubs to offer an-

· Informal
· Reduced cost
· Work and Family Friendly

way of achieving our core value of Service Above Self when serving our local, national and international communities. We meet in local venues once or twice a month subject to the demands of the projects we have in hand. Our current major ongoing projects are the administration of a holiday bungalow on a local Holiday Park that is used to provide needy families with the opportunity of enjoying a free one week holiday; and secondly an environmental project, in conjunction with local schools, to provide and build Eco-Greenhouses using recycled plastic bottles.

Recognising that the work side of projects is important it is also a fact that work needs to have a fun and social element if it is to be sustainable. Membership of a Rotary Club provides you with opportunities to participate in activities such as social events and low level sports to ensure that fun and fellowship remain an integral part of our Rotary lives.

If you share these values or want to know more about what we do we welcome you to contact us and hopefully visit us. Communities value the service of a Rotary Club and clubs need volunteers to maintain the level of service we provide. Could this be you?.

   Meetings will be held at various venues.  Please contact Secretary for more information

  The third Wednesday of each month at 5.30 p.m.

The Lions Club of New Milton

Problems get smaller and communities get better with the help of a Lions Club in our town.

When it comes to meeting challenges, our response is simple: We serve. It's something that unites Lions around the world. We help wherever, whenever and however we can and at the same time we have a fun.  In New Milton WE CARE and WE SERVE by donating thousands of pounds to local organisations and charities in need of financial support, making a difference by contributing to local educational needs, raising Sight Awareness in our area, sponsoring an Easter Egg hunt for local young children, organising senior citizens tea parties ,fund-raising Family fun days, Car Boot Sales, Golf Charity Day, sponsoring international exchanges for young people and supporting many community projects.

Being a Lion is to become an active volunteer, a member of a respected international organization, a leader in your community and a friend to people in need. Club members enjoy the sense of achievement in all that we do. Learn more about us on the Web Site -
