About us

All Rotary Club Meetings and other events have been cancelled for the foreseeable future

We are the longest-established Rotary Club in Cambridge. We welcome visiting Rotarians and new members from all walks of life who live or work in the City and the surrounding area

Our members make an active contribution to the local and international community, supporting youth organisations, Rotary "End Polio Now', disaster relief through Shelterbox, a literacy project for schools in South Africa and a building and training project in The Gambia, among others

We enjoy a range of fellowship events including walks, concerts, theatre & museum visits, quiz nights and bowls

We meet every Tuesday at the Gonville Hotel overlooking Parker's Piece in the centre of Cambridge (see bottom of this page for details), and often hear interesting talks by a wide selection of the Cambridge community. Click here for more details. Meetings are usually at lunchtime, but are in the evening on the last Tuesday of the month. There is also a monthly breakfast meeting at 7:30 on the 2nd Tuesday. Visiting Rotarians are asked to give at least 5 days notice of wishing to attend by email to the Secretary at   cambridgerotaryuk@gmail.com
