Welcome to the Rotary Club of Hawick.
Thank you for visiting our 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.
Based in the historic market town of Hawick, our Club was chartered in 1936 and celebrates years of service to the local community and to international organisations where we hope to make a difference.
Our youth programme involves the local secondary school where we encourage participation in activities such as Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Young Artist, Young Chef, Young Photographer and Young Musician competitions.
Internationally we have donated this year to Freedom from Fistula, 500 Miles and End Polio Now. We have also become involved in Micro-financing small businesses in developing countries.
We are a small friendly Club with men and women members, and while maintaining the traditions of Rotary it is important to enjoy ourselves while fundraising.
We hold regular social events within normal meetings and other external events where partners and friends are welcome to join us.
I joined the Rotary Club of Hawick in 2015 and have found it a friendly welcoming Club, and am honoured to serve as President for this year.
To find out more about us and what we do please scroll down this page and also use the menu at top left to view our other pages.

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.
