About us





                                    Visiting Vineyard in Germany 


Rotary International is a worldwide organisation of men and women who volunteer their time and talents to serve communities at home and abroad. Rotary is inclusive of all cultures, races and creeds. It is non-religious and non-political, and there are no age or gender restrictions

Rotarians provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in every vocation, and help to build goodwill and peace in the world. 

Rotary Club of Norwich St. Edmund

As one of 33,000 Clubs in over 200 countries, our Club, formed in 1986, uses the knowledge and goodwill of its members to improve the education, health and opportunities within communities, both locally and internationally.  

We achieve this by supporting small local charities, or by direct engagement, often with another Rotary Club either in the UK or Overseas. We also work closely with our sister Clubs in Mainz (Germany) and Reims (France).  Although Globally affiliated as a Rotary Charity, each Club operates as an individual Club where members agree their objectives. Our Club enjoys weekly evening friendship meetings conducting business at the Maids Head Hotel or online. 

Community Service 

Locally we support many charities, including St.Martin`s Housing Trust, Young Carers and Home Start as well as helping schools provide food.  

Christmas Tree Festival

In collaboration with St. Peter Mancroft Church each year we stage a Christmas Tree Festival which supports local charities. 

Various businesses and professionals sponsor the trees and help us raise funds for charitable purposes.


Rotary Club of Norwich St. Edmund is deeply committed to supporting international humanitarian aid and development.

We have recently provided emergency support to the recovery efforts following the Caribbean Hurricane IRMA on the island of Anguilla. With help from around the world the island started recovering soon after the hurricane. 

Through "Lend With Care" our members offer small loans to entrepreneurs, often women in the developing world, funding investments such as market stalls and sewing machines for tailors and dress makers.

Modern Slavery

We are very proud to continue our support of the "Rotarian Action Group Against Slavery" founded by our Club member Mark Little.
