About us

In North Down, our club has raised tens of thousands of pounds for community projects and local charities. Members also volunteer their time supervising and running community projects and events. Several projects are aimed at promoting the achievements of young people, such as the Northern Ireland Primary School Musician of the Year, which has for years now provided children with a great opportunity to perform and learn.



The Club is looking to recruit new members. Membership is open to all and we would welcome enquiries by anyone interested in a combination of service and enjoyment. Please use the contact link on this page to contact the Club and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.





The Club regrets to announce that it will no be possible to hold a competition in 2024. Although no final decision has been taken,  it is unlikely that it will be held for the foreseeable future as many circumstances have changed, not least the arrangements for music tuition in schools.



The Rotary Club of North Down is very much a fun loving club, made up of members covering a wide range of professions, with the common theme of fellowship and providing service to the local community and abroad. We also contribute to Rotary International initiatives world wide, such as the eradication of polio as well as the very successful Shelter Box initiative.

We meet for dinner every Monday evening at Blackwood Golf Centre and have speakers at most meetings except for our monthly business meeting. These speakers provide us with great entertainment or information of interest. Rotary is a great opportunity to catch up with friends, visitors and guests who are always made most welcome by the membership. The meetings are well attended and the atmosphere of laughter and conversation really make this a weekly event to look forward to. Both guests and visiting Rotarians are very welcome and we would encourage you to come along and meet with the club to see the fun, fellowship and fulfilment that comes from being in Rotary.  Further information relating to meeting can be found on the website, but if you wish to contact the club there is a link on the site and someone will get back to you as soon as they can.
