Membership of the Club is an incredibly rewarding and enjoyable experience and we are actively looking for new people to invite to join and breathe new life and ideas into the Club.
There are many misconceptions about Rotary.
When the first Rotary Club was started in Chicago 114 years ago it consisted mostly of businessmen but modern clubs like ours have members from all walks of life - retailers, financial advisers, civil servants, manufacturers, opticians and community leaders are just some of the diverse range of our members.
In fact, we are People like YOU.
