About us

Dorchester Poundbury Rotary Club

Dorchester Poundbury Rotary club started in 2013, and is service club for men and women striving to uphold the ethos of Rotary International while being very relaxed and contemporary in structure. The club meets every Friday at the Octagon Cafe in Poundbury from 7-30 to 8-30 for a breakfast meeting of toast, croissants and coffee (unless COVID restrictions do not allow this to happen). The ages of members ranges from 24 - 80. There is a wide mixture of occupations from stockbrokers, solicitors and bankers to builders, reflexologists and teachers, estate agents. 


Poundbury Rotary Club is an excellent way of supporting the local and international community with fundraising charitable projects, and offering help in terms of service to people and organisations. It offers a great way of  networking and meeting business and professional men and women in the Dorchester area. There is also a big emphasis on socialising and having fun!
