Welcome to the

Rotary Club of Mounts Bay

Rotary Club of Mounts Bay President Dee Lucking with Immediate Past President Graham Calderwood

Rotary members are enthusiastic, fun-loving and active volunteers who give their time and talents to serve communities both at home and overseas. We are dedicated people, men and women from business and professions, who share a common interest in helping others.

Each member enjoys business as well as social networking opportunities, whilst giving something back to those less fortunate, learning new skills and having a huge amount of fun!

Polio Eradication

Since making the pledge in 1985 to eradicate polio - its most ambitious programme to date - Rotary International in partnership with health agencies has brought the number of cases of polio down by 99 percent.


Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) has over 55,000 members in 1,855 clubs. It is an integral part of Rotary International, the world's first service organisation.     

Being a Rotarian is very fulfilling. You can do as much as your time allows, have fun and enjoy fellowship with others. 
The club is always keen to welcome new members.
