About us




King Charles III

Buckingham Palace

W1A 1 AA

Sir Your Majesty,


I have the honour, Sir, ‘Your Majesty’ to be your humble and obedient servant.


It is with profound sadness that I write upon hearing of the death of our beloved Queen Elizabeth. The Rotary Club of King’s Lynn Priory wish to join in sending the Royal family our most heartfelt sympathy on the death of Her Majesty, we mourn with you in the death of The Queen, a mother, grandmother, great grandmother, a loyal friend, and our Sovereign. 


With Sandringham so close to King’s Lynn we have a close affinity to Her Majesty and the Royal Family, especially as we have been involved directly with the Royal Estate through the Sandringham Flower Show, where we have had a stall over many years, the Easter Egg Trail jointly with East Anglian Air Ambulance, Run Sandringham half marathon and 10k and Park House events. 


Living so close to the Sandringham Estate I know that many of Priory Rotary have seen Her Majesty and other members of the Royal Family on many occasions and feel a close affinity and admiration for the Monarchy. One can only by grateful for Queen Elizabeth’s commitment and duty to us all over the seventy years of her reign and we are humbled by her service. 


God Save the King.


Jonathan Holmes

President 2022/23 Rotary Club of King’s Lynn Priory

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 wide range of community and fundraising projects and a full social programme. We support many local charities, and typically raise over £20,000 per year through annual events such as our Rotary Swimarathon, our Easter Egg Trail on the Sandringham Estate, and providing marshals for the Great East Anglia Run (GEAR) and Run Sandringham events. 

We also participate in Rotary International projects such as End Polio Now, ShelterBox disaster relief, and Lend with Care which helps to start up sustainable businesses in poor countries. We meet regularly at King’s Lynn Golf Club, usually for a two course meal or buffet, where we plan our events or listen to speakers on a wide variety of topics.

Our satellite club is aimed at those who are not able or ready to commit to full membership of the club.  For more on the satellite club click here. 

 For more information, see our “What We Do” pages from the menu above.

We meet regularly at King's Lynn Golf Club, but we also provide the option to join the meetings by Zoom for members and guests who may not feel able to join us in person. 


If you would like to attend one of our meetings or are interested in joining the club please contact us here.

King’s Lynn’s Priory Rotary club are pleased to be supporting this year’s trip to Pleasurewood Hills, organised by the West Norfolk Community Shop on the Fairstead. The Community shop, run by Emma Brock, does a tremendous job helping the local community, and one of the highlights is an annual coach trip for local children and their families. 

This year, two coaches with around 50 children and 30 adults are setting off for a day out at Pleasurewood Hills in Great Yarmouth. The trip has been subsidised by a generous donation from King’s Lynn Priory Rotary Club, from the proceeds of their Swimarathon back in March, with additional funding accessed from the Rotary partnership with national charity KidsOut.

Thanking the Rotary, Emma said ”the kids have been eagerly looking forward to this day out, at a time when the cost of living is rising and times can be hard. Priory Rotary’s contribution has made a significant difference, enabling the trip to go ahead”.
