A Warm Rotary Welcome
Welcome to web site of the Rotary Club of Longbenton with Killingworth commonly known as LBWK. As a club we were chartered in 1973, with the assistance of Gosforth Rotary Club. This year we are celebrating our 40th year as a Rotary Club. We have been a dual gender club for many years. LBWK is a particularly friendly and fun club, believing that fellowship and friendship amongst our members is particularly important. Consequently our meetings are full of banter and laughter.
Why don't you come along and join us to see for yourself?
