The Rotary Club of Lowestoft was the first Rotary Club in the town of Lowestoft having been inaugurated on 24th May, 1937 and now  has 25 members, having also spawned the Rotary Clubs of Lowestoft South and Lowestoft East Point along the way.

Our members hail from many walks of life and, whilst most live in Lowestoft, there are also some from Beccles, Norwich and Gorleston.

Visitors to the Club's meetings are very welcome. During the coronavirus restrictions we are meeting using zoom. Please ring the secretary David Wright (01502 568156) for information on the login IDs. When normal service is restored please ring the Parkhill Hotel (tel. no. 01502 730322), in advance to advise their planned attendance, thus assisting with catering arrangements.

We will organise a new club photo when lockdown eases.
