Welcome to the Rotary Club of Hawick
Thank you for visiting our Club's website. I trust you will find some interesting information about our Club, and if you live locally and are interested in finding out more about Rotary, please get in touch with us, when you will be invited along to visit us at one of our Thursday evening meetings.
I joined the Rotary Club of Hawick in 2012 after being a Rotarian in Orkney for 7 years and a Past President there – I have found it a friendly and welcoming club and am honoured to serve as President for a second time. Our Club has a membership of 20 – one member moved away last year and we have welcomed two new members. My Vice President is Linden Warburton and I have an excellent support team behind me.
As usual our committees – Club Service, International ,and Community & Vocational are planning the year's activities . We aim to make a difference here in Hawick as well as in international projects. We meet weekly for fun and friendship, with interesting speakers and activities, as well as fundraising and helping other Border clubs in our wider community.
Every year each Border Club has a President’s Night when we not only welcome our members and their partners and friends, but also other club Presidents – this year our President’s night is on Friday 30th November 2018. Fourteen members of our club will be attending the District 1020 Conference in Aberdeen on the 26th-28th October.
We are always keen to welcome new members and if you are interested do contact me

Photo above : 'The Horse': possibly the best known landmark in Hawick, and a symbol of the town's historic traditions. However, we're an active club, and, while aware of our successful history, we're trying always to look forward, keen to welcome new members who will bring freshness and new ideas.
We aim to bring Rotary to the attention of townsfolk and to this end have planted a crocus display on a grassy slope at Heronhill Bank on Weensland Road. The crocuses are an emblem of Rotary's project to End Polio Now and their planting in 2017 incorporated a donation by local Rotarians to this project.
