About us

The Rotary Club  of Dunmow  is part of a world-wide organisation working to support our local community, and worldwide Rotary  humanitarian projects.


We usually meet at The Saracen's Head Hotel every Thursday at 12.45pm.  However, if there is a 5th Thursday in the month, we have an evening social event to which partners and guests are invited. **


** Due to the ongoing situation regarding the COVID-19 virus, and in-line with the current UK Government guidelines on social gatherings, all weekly meetings of the Rotary Club of Dunmow have been suspended until further notice.  Weekly video conference calls have been established for members in order to maintain contact and communications during this period.
