Rotary in The South West Peninsula: Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly 

'Rotary' - a familiar name? But who are we?

Rotarians are just ordinary people, male and female, young and old, who are prepared to go out of their way to help others. But under Rotary those ordinary people achieve the extraordinary.

12 Reasons to Join Us  

If it’s of interest to you then contact your local Rotary club or email join@rotarysw.info  




Rotary in the SouthWest Peninsula of England, (the merger of Districts 1170 and 1290 on 1st July, 2015) comprises 89 clubs with over 2600 members under the leadership of District Governor Brian Stoyel.

Our clubs are based in local communities where members meet on a regular basis to enjoy friendship, networking and to plan projects that will benefit the lives of others. Clubs utilise the skills, expertise and dedication of their members to help improve the lives of people in communities both at home and abroad.

There are over 50,000 Rotarians in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) in over 1,800 clubs, helping those in need and working towards world understanding and peace. It’s a fulfilling role, and Rotarians can get involved as much or as little as their time will allow. Rotary is an organisation for both men and women.

Rotary International is the world's largest service organisation, with some 1,240,000 members operating in 166 countries worldwide.
