About us

Helensburgh Garelochside Rotary

We extend a warm welcome to visitors and particularly welcome prospective members.

We are a friendly club with relaxed and informal meetings every Monday at the Rosslea Hall Hotel, Rhu, with wonderful sea views over the River Clyde and the Gareloch. We meet from 18.30 to 19.45, with coffee or tea and the option of a bar meal to follow the meeting. Once per month (usually the last Monday) a meal is served and there is a visiting speaker.

Most meetings involve some Rotary business and a short informative and entertaining talk or presentation relevant to our community and Rotary.

Our members engage in a wide range of activities. We fundraise and 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.  In January 2017 we were delighted to be the first Rotary Club to support the excellent Police Scotland Internet Safety presentation given to all local primary schools. Visit our Photo Gallery to read a report about the 2018 Internet Safety event.

We have lots of fun and fellowship and visiting Rotarians are most welcome.
