Rotarians embrace the Rotary International theme of Service above Self and are active in projects in their local communities and worldwide.  Our District Team supports them to do just that.

 "My vision is that Rotary should exist everywhere in a style to suit everyone who has the desire to be part of us and to help us do good in the world,".

Rotary is a membership organisation and we welcome anyone to join us.  With a range of clubs in our District, there one to suit most people within easy travelling distance of where they live or online.  Go to the club's websites to give you a flavour of what they offer -  contacting them is easy and without obligation.   If you need help finding a suitable club please contact our Membership Lead on the Contact Us page, who will be happy to help you.  

Rotarians help others.  They save lives, change lives and give hope.
