Becoming a member

Who can join?

Rotarians come from all walks of life but key is being of good character.

Rotarians need to, and do, trust each other on the basis of our famous Four Way Test - 

Rotary clubs also welcome members of our other Club programmes including Interactors, Rotaractors, Rotary Peace Fellows, Rotary Youth Exchange students and Rotary Youth Leaders.

How can I become a member?

Come along to a meeting and see if our Club is for you. If you are interested in joining we will provide you with everything you need to know.

What are the benefits?

Becoming a Rotary member connects you with a diverse group of people with skills who share your drive to give back. Through regular meetings and events, you’ll:
