WECOME TO OUR NEW FOREST ROTARY CLUB WEBSITE
Like all Rotary Clubs, the New Forest Club is a friendly and active dual-gender group. We currently have a total of 32 full members and 13 Honorary Members.
Members live throughout the New Forest National Park area, including in Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst, Totton, Ashurst, Burley and just outside in Romsey and Lymington. We meet in Lyndhurst, known as the capital of the New Forest, and we take full advantage of this beautiful area.
We have a meeting most Monday evenings, build lasting friendships and business relationships, organise fund raising events which enable us to donate about £20,000 each year to local and international charities and, very importantly, enjoy ourselves doing it. We normally meet on Monday evenings for a meal followed by a speaker, committees, business or other activities. Recently we have developed a monthly system in which we have two formal meetings only and two in a pub: more details shown elsewhere on this page.
Visiting Rotarians and their partners and non-Rotarians who are interested in our activities are very welcome at any of our meetings. Please get in touch via the 'Contact' link at the top of this page.
President Philip Dinn was out of action with a long illness but has recovered following a bone marrow transplant. His role was being covered by Tim Richardson assisted by Tony Roe and Lawrie Lansdell who were delighted to welcome him back in January 2019.
