About us

The Rotary Club of South Holland is based in the market town of Spalding, in South Lincolnshire. The main industry although farming, has moved into associated industries such as vegetable packing, food processing, cold storage and haulage. This area is probably the most important in the UK for the supply of fruit, flowers, vegetables and prepared foods to supermarkets and wholesalers.

The Rotary Club of South Holland was founded in 1983, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Spalding as an evening meeting club, in order to allow suitably qualified people to join Rotary who were otherwise unable to attend a lunchtime club.
