A welcome message from the District Governor.

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the official webpage of Rotary District 1320 – Scotland South. As District Governor, I am honoured to serve and lead an incredible community of dedicated individuals who are passionate about making a positive difference in our communities and across the world.

Rotary is not just an organisation, but a vibrant movement that is built upon the foundation of fellowship, service, and ethical leadership and it continues to be a beacon of hope around the world. It is a global network of dedicated individuals from diverse backgrounds, united by the common goal of creating lasting change in our communities and beyond.

I am immensely proud of the incredible work that Districts 1020 & 1230 have accomplished in the past to uphold Rotary's motto of "Service Above Self", yet I am greatly enthused about the birth of our new District. 1320 – Scotland South.

New beginnings

As District 1320, Rotary's newest District, comes into being, one of of its members, Gordon McInally, takes up the position of Rotary International President. The new District couldn't have better credentials!

And we are delighted that Gordon attended the inaugural District Handover on 10 June 2023.

It was quite an occasion. Duncan Collinson and Gail Savage, District Governors of the current Districts 1020 and 1230, handed over to Narek Bido, the first District Governor of District 1320, and we celebrated the work of both exisitng Districts and looked forward to new challenges and achievements in our new enlarged District.

We also celebrated Gordon's accession to the Presidency of Rotary International. Gordon is only the second Scot to hold that role in Rotary's 118 year history, and it is a mark of pride that the RI President in this special year comes from our own District.

Where we are

When we say an enlarged District, we mean it. District 1320 will be known geographically as Scotland South, a name which belies the vast area its 90-odd clubs cover.


Nevertheless we aim to ensure that Rotary is recognised across the area for what it does in local communities and further afield.

District Conference

The very first District 1320 Conference will be held in Aviemore on 23-24 March 2024.

The conference theme is Together we can.... With a varied programme of speakers we aim to demonstrate the synergy we can achieve when Rotary operates in partnership with other people and organisations, to the benefit of those we are trying to help and also our own clubs. Eveyone's a winner!

The conference site is at www.1320conf24.org.
