About us


      2017-2018 3 Presidents John Dent, Neil Worth & Alan Atkinson                       

Rotary came knocking on the door in Preston South in the spring of 1966 when our parent club Preston ceded territory embracing the parishes south of the Ribble from Samlesbury to Hoole. It was at this time that the founder members adopted the Griffin which featured on the Club`s early pennants. The inaugral meeting took place at the Bull & Royal Hotel, Preston on Wednesday 28th September 1966 when 32 Members were present.

6 months later on 20th March 1967, the Club was presented with the Club Charter again at the Bull & Royal and now celebrates this Charter each year on the first Tuesday in February. On the 7th February 2017 the Club celebrated its 5oth year anniversary.  Over these 50 years it is estimated that the Club has raised and donated half a million pounds to charities. 

From the very begining the Club has been served by a succession of able Presidents and officers drawn from a lively and interested membership currently numbering 35.
