About us


I’m David Lancaster and I'm going to be President of the Rotary Club of North Berwick for 2019/2020. Wait...what?! I’m not qualified to be the President of this remarkable club! At least that was the initial thought that went through my head when it was proposed to me 2 ½ years ago. That said, I am humbled by this opportunity, and I’m incredibly excited about this coming Rotary year. We have an amazing group of ladies and gentlemen! I want to make sure that we celebrate our achievements throughout this next year. There is so much that we do to create lasting change across the globe, in our community, and in ourselves, yet we often don’t take the time to celebrate all that we do as Rotarians. I seek to emphasize those achievements!

We meet weekly , on a Tuesday, at the Marine Hotel in North Berwick, between 7pm and 9pm for a two course meal, a blether and to hear a speaker or enjoy some entertainment. We know that not everyone can make a weekly commitment , but if you can come along to a couple of meetings a month, get involved in some of our activities,  have a desire to help others and are willing to have some fun at the same time you are our sort of person. Have a look at what Rotary is about, our club, and our Membership leaflet in the links below and check out our Facebook page. If you like what you see and want to find out more click the ‘contact’ at the top of the page and leave a few details so a member of our team can get in touch and have a chat with you. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. 

Remember...Rotary Connects the World!

Yours in Rotary,
David Lancaster
