King's Lynn Priory Rotary Club (Club 1180)
We welcome new members to either our main club or the satellite club
We are a friendly and active club with a very wide range of community and fundraising projects and a full social calender. We are proud to be part of the worldwide Rotary community.
. We have also established a satellite club aimed at those who are not able or ready to commit to full membership of the club.
