Welcome to the website of The Rotary Club of Bournemouth

Rotary International is a global network of service volunteers. It is the world's largest service organisation for business and professional people, with over 1,200,000 members operating in 200 countries world-wide. Please click here for more general information about Rotary.

The Rotary Club of Bournemouth was the first Rotary Club to be formed in the Bournemouth & Poole area and is now a thriving club with around 50 male and female members. For more information about what we do and how to join us, please click here.

We meet weekly on Mondays, usually at 1.00pm in the Cliffeside Hotel, 32 East Overcliff Drive, Bournemouth, BH1 3AQ (click here for a map). We also have an Evening Group for younger (aged 30+) business people which meets monthly on the first Wednesday at 6.00pm.

We welcome visitors and Rotarians from other Clubs, but please let our Secretary know a few days in advance that you are coming.
