Welcome to the Rotary Club of Farnham
.We are club no. 166 chartered in 1924. We have 36 members (plus 6 honorary members) who live in the Farnham area. We normally meet each Thursday at lunchtime in The Bush Hotel, Farnham and we usually have a speaker at three of our meetings every month (BUT SEE OUR SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT BELOW).

We operate our own charity, the Rotary Club of Farnham Benevolent Fund (Reg no. 200435), which we use as the means of channelling our funds to the other charities and good causes we identify.
If you are a Rotarian visiting the area you will be made welcome at one of our meetings. If you are interested in joining Rotary, please contact our President for further information (email@example.com).
