 Welcome to the website of Rotary International District 1070, a district that covers Central Eastern England - the whole of Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Rutland, Southern Lincolnshire and parts of Cambridgeshire.

But how can you get involved?


Whatever the answer we have a Club for you

Thank you and good bye to    David Morris, DG for 2021-2022


Hello and welcome to  Steve Howe DG for 2022-2023


District 1070 has established a Disaster Response Team specifically to deal with all aspects of the humanitarian crisis in the Ukraine.    The aim of the team is to optimise our support for those in need whilst concomitantly collating and  promoting the assistance that we are providing.    Both aspects are very important and it is key to what we wish to achieve that Clubs help us by furnishing requested information.   As we move forward, we expect to see an increase in the number of displaced persons arriving from Ukraine into our District.    We aspire to be in the best possible position to help these needy guests so the more we understand how to optimise our support the better we will be able to provide it.    To this end, and with immediate effect, it is requested that Clubs:

Advise all new information about funding and support provided for any aspect of helping Ukrainians to District Webmaster Ian Robinson (Danetre Daventry).   Ian will use this information to keep the associated pages on the District Web Page relevant and up to date.

Advise any information about Rotarians wishing to accommodate refugees and their families to Andrea Fiford (Melton Mowbray Enterprise).    Andrea will  collate this information so that we can assist any local authority in the District with problems arising from expected accommodation not being available as and when needed and also to assist with issues resulting from “bouncing out”.

Telephone numbers and email addresses for Ian webmaster@rotary1070.org and Andrea can be found in the District membership handbook.    Separate communications addressing such issues as safeguarding for displaced persons in the UK, applying for associated grants to assist “in-country” endeavours and areas of immediate focus for East European support will be communicated in due course.   In addition, Assistant Governors have already been requested to collaborate in our information gathering efforts vis-à-vis expected influx of refugees.   In the interim, I would appreciate it if Clubs made cooperation as requested above a priority task; the better prepared we are to deal with things, the more effective we will be.

Regular updates from the Ukraine Rotary Task Force will also be included on this website.

The answer, of course, has to be a Rotarian. But who is it? Look in the new look News and Events.
