What are the benefits?

Rotary brings together people from all walks of life. Getting involved with Rotary provides benefits to not only communities, but our members as well.

  • Social networking – Rotary is a great way to expand your social circles, meet new people and make lasting friendships, all while having fun and making a difference.
  • Develop your skills – You can share your personal and vocational skills, take up leadership roles, as well as learning from fellow members on activities such as project planning, communications and service delivery.
  • Enhance your understanding – Events such as the annual Rotary Showcase and the international Convention offer opportunities to be inspired by guest speakers and develop your global understanding.

Welcome to our Club

Our Rotary Club is about fun and friendship. It’s about having a good time, enjoying each other’s company whilst delivering enjoyable events for the local community, for local schools and to raise money for good causes.

As a club we socialise over dinners, listen to interesting outside speakers, have days out at interesting places and visit other clubs in the UK and abroad. Our moto is ’Service above Self’ so it’s about giving something back that benefits the community.

We love working together as a team using our experience and skills to deliver enjoyable events which the local community enjoy. Over the 30 years we have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for charities.

We have a strong connection with local primary schools running annual Poetry recitals, Young Writer Essay and Maths Competitions plus helping children read at local schools. 

Our big annual events include ‘The Thames Valley Pub Quiz Championship and working with the other Rotary Clubs in Maidenhead to deliver the annual Maidenhead’s Got Talent Show.

You will make new friends, have fun, learn new skills, meet many interesting people whilst doing something for your local community.

You will receive a warm welcome at one our fortnightly meetings. We look forward to seeing you.
