About us

The Rotary Club of Wansbeck was founded in 1990 as the first evening club in the area. The Club meets on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month excluding Bank Holidays. The meetings take place at Newbiggin Golf Club at 7.30pm for a meal, fellowship, an occasional speaker and to discuss club projects. Our club is small, fun and effective. We support a number of projects, both local and international which have worthwhile charitable objectives.

The Club is always keen to welcome potential new members. Typically, membership is drawn from those working in or residents of Blyth Valley, Morpeth and Wansbeck areas. However, it is important to note that there are no longer any geographical barriers to membership and anyone is free to join the Rotary Club of his or her choice (by invitation) irrespective of where that person lives or works.
