About us

For the time being our regular meetings are online so please use the 'Contact' link in the top toolbar to find out more about our club. 

Newark Castle is part of Rotary International a service organization whose stated purpose is to bring together like minded people in order to provide humanitarian services.

We get involved in local Community and International projects and are always looking for new members who are prepared to give service to others less fortunate than ourselves and who want to give something back to society. The Community is at the heart of the club's service and our projects help to improve the lives of people in the local area.

We are a non-political and non-religious organization open to all.

If you would like to know more about us click on the "What We Do" link in the drop down menu or at the top of this page or why not scroll down and visit our facebook page.
