Welcome to Rotary District 1170

Rotary is the largest voluntary service organisation for men and women of all ages, young and old, in the world, and we are its representatives here in Devon. We are committed through fellowship and our personal skills to changing and improving lives, supporting and improving communities, nationally and internationally, working for peace and understanding between all peoples.

Rotary gives us the opportunity to give something back, give hope to communities and make lives worthwhile and fulfilled. Rotarians have fun and make new friends at the same time. Members are all in agreement that Rotary opens doors to a better world.

District 1170 covers the  county of  Devon, excluding the Plymouth area. We have 50 clubs with over 1600 Rotarians (Click the map to see a local Rotary club near you). Rotary is a worldwide organisation of over 1.2 million members.In 2015 we will merge with our colleagues in Cornwall to create District 1175. It will be a time for change and new challenges.
