Club Meetings Suspended

Until further notice the Club will not meet face to face in view of the Covid-19 situation.

All meetings and scheduled events are now being held online and communication will be by phone or e-mail.

  Welcome to the Rotary Club of Tunbridge Wells 

Our Club is part of a worldwide organisation called Rotary International, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto 'Service Above Self'.

Rotarians are men and women who take an active role in their communities while greatly enriching their personal and professional lives. A Rotary club contains a diverse group of people from the community that the club serves. As a member of a Rotary club, you have the opportunity to give something back, to give hope to those less fortunate and to make lives worthwhile and fulfilled.
