About us

  The Rotary Club of Wansbeck was founded over 20 years ago as the first evening club in the area.  The Club meets on Monday evenings for a meal, fellowship, an occasional speaker and to discuss club projects.  Our club is small, fun and effective. We support a number of projects, both local and international which have worthwhile charitable objectives.

The Club is always keen to welcome potential new members. Typically, membership is drawn from those working in or residents of Blyth Valley, Morpeth and Wansbeck areas. However, it is important to note that there are no longer any geographical barriers to membership and anyone is free to join the Rotary Club of his or her choice (by invitation)  irrespective of where that person lives or works.

Latest Club activiies :

The Club recently held a Geordie Night at Newbiggin Golf Club which was a great success and helped us boost our funds to enable us to aid local charities, examples of which are:

Donation to Cambois Rowing Club to assist with boat repairs.

A donation to help a young boy from Newbiggin with the purchase of a specialised tricycle to aid his mobility.

A donation to a student from Ellington to assist him in achieving his target so he can participate in the Madagascar World Challenge in July.
