About us

Our meetings are held at the Edenbank Hotel, Dumfries and involve a range of club visits, interesting speakers and good fellowship. Presently however we are holding our meetings via Zoom. Check our calender for forthcoming meetings.

Service to the community requires our Rotarians to devote their time, energy and professional skills to particular projects. This often involves fundraising to provide charities with financial support but this is not our Clubs first aim. Our emphasis is on personal service.

Recent club news:  Over the Pandemic our club have been able to organise a programme of Beach Clean Ups to the Solway coast.
