We extend a warm welcome to visitors and particularly welcome prospective members
We are a friendly club of just under 50 men and women meeting every Monday for lunch at the Pirelli Stadium, the home of Burton Albion Football Club. Most weeks we have a speaker presenting a subject relevant to our community and Rotary.
Our members engage in a wide range of activities. We fundraise through concerts, parading ‘Sandwich Boards’ through the town, and any other ideas we can think of! We help the needy in our local, national and international community in many different ways. We organise programmes to help the young people in our community. We have lots of fun and fellowship.
Our home, in the brewing and football capital of the UK, is surrounded by the new National Forest and rural countryside with the River Trent flowing through the centre of the town - what a superb combination! To find out more about our area visit Information about Burton and Tourist information for East Staffs
Please read about our Club and the Rotary movement in general by exploring What we do and Programme and Photo Galleries in the menu bar at the top of the page. Our Club Bulletins and Weekly Bulletins give you lots of information about our current activities.
If you feel that you want to put something back into the community while gaining a whole new group of like-minded friends, then come and join us. Just click on this contact link and we will arrange for you to come as a visitor to one of our meetings.

Local and international communities recently supported
Langan's New Van
We recently helped Burton Addiction Centre/Langan's to buy a refrigerated van to develop an external catering service. On 27th February 2017 Langan's newly purchased van visited the club to say thank you. The splendid van is seen here with club members.
Gardening at John of Rolleston School
Rotary club members hard at work clearing an area for the children of John of Rolleston School in June 2016.
These volunteers provide a valuable service to the community transporting blood and life saving medical supplies to the NHS Foundations across our region and we have given support to help with their running costs.

We regularly collect spectacles for Vision Aid Overseas to be recycled for use overseas and recently we gave a donation to help with this work.
