It is a great honour for me to be taking on the role of President for the Rotary year 2019/20.

Being a Club based in Belfast city centre enables us to connect with the local Community, through service with YouthAction, Mitchell House and the Tree of Remembrance.

We appreciate the tremendous amount of service already given by members but are looking forward to encouraging new members to join. Any prospective member is most welcome at any of our Monday meetings.

This year’s Rotary theme is Rotary connects the World
and we hope that you will help us to build those connections.
