was formed in 1947 and although relatively small it is particularly active and well respected for its local and international projects. We are a dual gender club and visiting Rotarians and their partners will receive a very warm welcome at any of our meetings - please advise the secretary via the contact form.
Attracting new members to Rotary is absolutely vital to the continued success of the organization.
