DG Ian McTurk

Hello, I’m Ian McTurk.

I joined Rotary in 2008 as a member at Church and Oswaldtwistle. I have held various posts within the club including Health & Safety officer, Fundraising Chair, Membership Chair, and Community Chair. I was Club President in 2014-2015 and 2015-2016.

At District level, I served as an Assistant Governor for the South East area in 2016-2019. I was also Public Image team leader from 2018 to 2020.


I spent my whole career in the Livestock and Meat industry on Government based support scheme work. The last 20 years of my career was spent working for HM Inspectorate in this same area. I enjoyed a secondment working in the European Commission in Brussels for 3 years before retiring.


I very recently lost my wonderful wife, Patricia, with whom I enjoyed 23 years of happiness, adventure and many varied activities and experiences. Away from Rotary I am very keen on ballroom dancing, even qualifying as a professional teacher. I enjoy most outdoor activities, walking and the environment. I also enjoy music, opera and the theatre.
