WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE KNIGHTON AND DISTRICT ROTARY CLUB
Our Club was chartered in 1976 by some inspired people, a few of whom are still involved in the Club today. We have 28 members, including 10 women, and share the fun and friendship of our weekly meetings. We have a meal which is often followed by a speaker to entertain and inform. We also organise fundraising events to allow us to support local, national and international charities. But most of all we enjoy each other's company and good humour. You can see what Rotary is all about HERE......
From the menu above you can open up pages that tell you about our meetings, our fund raisers and the charities that we are supporting this year. You can also find out about the different activities that each committee is involved in. In addition you can find links to the local town websites and to Club videos HERE
We are looking forward to another year of fun and fundraising, with emphasis on the former! You can see more about what we do below as well as on the pages above. And you can always get in touch through our contact page if you would like to come and meet us sometime! You will be made warmly welcome.....
