Gateway Club

We support the local Gateway Club, run under the auspices of the Hitchin & Letchworth Branch of Mencap, which provides a range of facilities for people over age 18 with a learning disability.


Christmas Charity Quiz

Each year the club produces a challenging prize quiz in time for the Christmas period. All the proceeds from quiz sales go to various charities. This year the main charity we are supporting is Age UK.


Hitchin Health and Wellbeing Day

Each year our club, supported by the other three Hitchin Rotary clubs, takes over the Market Square to provide a variety of health-related advice and service, including free blood tests and diabetis testing.


Purple 4 Polio Crocuses

Our club supports Rotary's "End Polio Now" project and to this end we have acquired crocus corms, proceeds from the sale of which go to the project's funds


Kids Out

Our Club, along with many other Rotary clubs, supports the KidsOut charity by providing disadvantaged children with an experience that brings both fun and happiness into their lives.


Technology Tournament

Our annual competition for teams from local secondary schools


About us


We are Hitchin Priory Rotary Club, one of four Rotary clubs in Hitchin, and part of a Rotary district covering much of Herts, Beds and Bucks.  We currently have 35 men and women members from a wide variety of backgrounds; some retired and some still working.

Our principal aim is to provide practical and financial support to local, national and global charitable organisations and endeavours.  We do this through a range of small and large events; some on a regular basis and some as one-off activities, and we get involved with other organisations, and other Rotary Clubs, by helping with their various activities.

We have fun with what we do: with our fund-raising and support events; with regular dinner meetings, sometimes with a speaker; we enjoy various social activities such as theatre and concert trips, walks, golf, croquet etc; and we enjoy the fellowship our club provides.

Find out more about us under What we do and Meetings & Events in the drop-down menu above.  And if you would like to find out more about us, either with a view to possibly joining Rotary or otherwise getting involved in what we do, you can telephone John Hartshorne on 01462 677047 for a chat, or click info@hitchinprioryrotaryclub.org to submit your enquiry by email.

Together with all Rotary Clubs in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) we adhere to a number of policies dealing with the way clubs and their members should conduct themselves.  The policies cover Privacy (GDPR), Health & Safety, Equality & Diversity, Safeguarding of Children and Safeguarding of Vulnerable Adults.  The RIBI Privacy Policy is accessible via the link at the foot of our home page.  All the policy statements are available by clicking here.
