About Us

Our Organisation
The Rotary Club of Retford was established in 1937 and has established itself as one of the most active and highly subscribed clubs in the United Kingdom.
The Rotary Club of Retford is a thriving private members club with its headquarters at Ye Olde Bell in Barnby Moor, near Retford. The club currently has over 70 members ranging in age from 40 upwards, however there is no mimimum age requirement for membership.

Our members come from all walks of life, but primarily will be professional people, business or community leaders. In addition, we also have a corporate membership scheme which enables local businesses to engage more effectively in their corporate responsibilities.  

The club engages in a number of philanthropic activities throughout the year and seeks to benefit local, national and international charities, community organisations, families and individuals. We raise and disperse in the region of £100,000 every year. 

In addition, the club conducts several social events each year for its members, their families and friends. The club has a thriving social programme and friendship and fellowship are at the heart of everything that we do.

In addition to the many organisations and individuals whom we support, we are always interested in new projects and good causes, in particular where these will benefit the local community or youth groups. Our members have a wealth of knwoedge and experience from business and the professions and our support can be service orientated as well as financial. If you have a project or cause that you think is worthy of support then please contact us. 

Although we are a thriving club we are always on the lookout for new members. The easiest way to join our club is via the sponsorship of an existing member, however if that is not possible, you can apply to join the club directly by contacting the club secretary. Potential corporate members should also contact the club secretary. 
Each member of the Rotary Club of Retford undertakes to operate with the highest ethical standard in their personal, club and business life. Our motto is "Service Before Self" and we pride ourselves on being part of one of the leading and largest fellowship and philanthropic organisations in the world.
