About us

Like many Rotary Clubs, we are now meeting both online and face-to-face in "hybrid" meetings. We meet on alternate Wednesday evenings and Friday lunchtimes each month, for an informal drink/meal and chat for about half an hour in person, followed by a more formalised discussion or inspirational talk, streamed via Zoom, in our usual venue: The King's Charles Room (upstairs) in The King's Head and Bell pub in central Abingdon. 

Contact  attendance@abingdonrotary.org.uk if you would like to join us.

Contact us here for an invitation via  Zoom to a meeting
