Helping in the community. We welcome men and women to join us. Rotary offers:

FELLOWSHIP. Rotary is a convivial organisation combining business and social events. It gives opportunities to meet like-minded people, to become more involved in local activities and to learn more about what is going on. The social activities give the opportunity to involve Partners.

DIVERSITY. Rotary is probably the most diverse organisation in the world. It has no religious, political, social, national or ethnic boundaries. Rotary's interests embrace the whole spectrum of Society on a global basis, ranging from the young to the elderly, and all who are disadvantaged to some extent, either by personal circumstances or disasters, natural or man made.

GIVING BACK. Rotary is the environment for giving back to the community at large, either financially or by personal effort, encapsulated in "Service above Self".

We have a busy programme with interesting speakers and many social activities.
