Welcome to the Rotary Club of Kimbolton Castle including our new Satellite Club.
Our Rotary Club takes its name from Kimbolton Castle, located in the village of Kimbolton in West Cambridgeshire. Being our titular home we do hold events during the year at the Castle, including our annual Charter celebrations. The Castle history dates back to Norman times and more details can be found here
The Club was Chartered in 1994, and originally had 28 members. Today we have 29 members (25 in the parent club and four in our new Satellite Club) , and there are still several founder members in the club. There are also seven members who have received the Paul Harris Award for outstanding service to Rotary. We are happy to report that a number of original members have since rejoined the Club. The Club operates in an informal style, and many guests have suggested that this is a relaxed and very enjoyable experience, whilst maintaining the objectives of Rotary. We pride ourselves on an enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere; not only at our weekly club meetings, but also during all the events we support and deliver through the year.
Over the years we have developed a series of successful events that support the local community and local charities, as well as international charities which help deprived children in Romania, and people in times of natural disasters. We also support our District events as well as the designated charities of RIBI on an annual basis, such as Rotary Foundation to eradicate polio throughout the world.
The biggest event in our calendar is the annual Kimbolton Country Fayre that is held in the Castle and its surrounding grounds. With more than 900 classic cars on view plus a full programme of events for both the main and secondary arenas it is a great day out for all ages. In 2018 the event raised £14,000 for charities and good causes supported by the club. More details can be found at http://www.kimboltoncountryfayre.com/
