Membership

We are always keen to welcome potential new members


You've read a bit about us and want to find out more. The best thing is to come and join us as guest for a few meetings. Those that do seem to come back for more... we have fun and you need to see for yourself. You can contact us using the links on this page.

Rotary membership is by invitation but we welcome anyone of any age, race, culture or creed who wants to give back to the community through working together for others. If Reading Abbey seems like a good fit for you, then we'll invite you to join us.
