The Newcastle upon Tyne Rotary Club, was the first Rotary club to be established in the north-east of England and only the tenth in RIBI. We celebrated our centenary last year.
Founded on 20th August 1915 with an initial membership of 50 local business men, the club went on to sponsor 25 more clubs in the north of England. Paul Harris, the founder of Rotary International, visited the Rotary Club of Newcastle upon Tyne in 1928 and 1937
Today the Rotary Club of Newcastle upon Tyne has an active social programme combined with fund-raising activities and opportunities for service. We are the only Rotary Club in Newcastle that continues to meet on a lunchtime and we extend a welcome to Rotarians who are visiting the city to enjoy fellowship with us.
PLEASE NOTE: In view of the current Coronavirus pandemic all our normal weekly Club meetings have been suspended until further notice.
