About us

Welcome to The Rotary Club of Ingatestone    

Rotary Club of Ingatestone was founded in 1975 and has been active in the Ingatestone area ever since. Our 21 members, both men and women, give service to the community and meet socially as friends. We have FUN.

We meet for a dinner meetings at Ivy Hill Hotel, Margaretting - for business on the 1st Thursday - with partners on 3rd Thursday bi-monthly and also on the 2nd or 4th Thursday for an informal social get together at a local venue. Please check the Programme. Our meetings include a programme of talks, presentations and discussions, which help us plan ways in which we can be of use and to raise funds supporting local, national and international causes.

If you are like us, and want to enjoy yourselves, make new friends, listen to interesting speakers, and at the same time, give something back to the community, then you can join us in making this happen. 

If you live in the Ingatestone area and you have been considering widening your circle of friends while giving support to the local community and to support needy causes overseas, we could be the friends you haven't yet met.

The Rotary motto is "Service above Self" and we are folk from all walks of life who share a common interest in helping others less fortunate than ourselves. There is much more information on this website. - see "Interested in Membership"

We welcome new members so if you think you might be interested in joining our club, please contact us for details

If you do not have time to take up full membership, you might prefer to become a "Friend of Ingatestone Rotary". In this way you can still enjoy some social events, help with charity projects or just get a taste of what Rotary is all about. Please CLICK HERE for further details.
