WHO ARE WE?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 firstname.lastname@example.org to submit your enquiry by email.
