We meet on most Monday evenings at 6:00 for 6:15pm until around 8:00pm,
except for Public Holidays and the occasional outside visit or event.
If you are considering a visit to us, it is always best to look at our Diary page and check with us beforehand.
We are always pleased to welcome visitors from other Rotary clubs and others with an interest in Rotary. Non members can only visit by invitation, so if not yet a member (Why?!!) but interested in Rotary, please contact us first,
then we can arrange to provide you with information about Rotary. For those not really able to be a full Rotarian, ask us about being a Friend of Rotary.
Help and advice is freely available, contact details are on our home page.
