Following the Government's latest directives in the battle against COVID-19, all face-to-face meetings of the Rotary Club of Helston-Lizard are suspended until further notice.  In the meantime, monthly Council meetings and fortnightly Club meetings are taking place virtually, using Zoom

The Rotary Club of Helston-Lizard was chartered on 29 April 1987 with 28 members.  Membership has grown steadily to the current 47 including 2 Honorary members.

The Club serves the community around the town of Helston and the Lizard Peninsula and is part of Rotary District 1175, covering 85 Rotary Clubs in the South West Peninsula of Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

The Club was saddened to hear of the recent death of Rtn. Alf Cannon, in September 2020
