The Rotary Club of Huntingdon has been serving this community for seventy-five years, but it is also part of a much larger picture.
Rotary was founded over one hundred years ago as a business networking group, and this still plays a part in Rotary today. Making connections with other members all over the world can enhance your professional life.
Today, Rotary is one of the world's largest and most successful global membership and humanitarian service organisations, with 1.2 million members in 35,000 clubs in over 200 countries. We have a unique position of being rooted within our own community, but with a global outlook, ready to tackle challenges at home and abroad.
Although we are a traditional club, comprising of mostly retired professional men and women, who meet once a week for lunch at The George Hotel, do not make the mistake of thinking that we are not still enthusiastic, fun-loving and fairly able, with a sense of humour. Last year Covid-19 almost brought this country to its knees and yet our Rotary club raised over £15,000 to support this community and others. This year, in conjuction with The Rotary Club of Huntingdon Cromwell, we are going to start a new club for younger people aged between 25 and 50ish. We acknowledge that our meeting times will not suit younger professionals with families so we are looking to change. Why not come along and help drag us into the 21st century. You will be made most welcome.
We meet on Thursdays at 12.30pmThe George Hotel
