About Rotary

What is Rotary? How can your membership contribute

Rotary in Colwall in the Malvern Hills

Rotary was extended to Colwall in 1986 to provide an opportunity for local business people to become Rotarians who were unable to make the lunch time meetings, which were the meeting times of our "mother associations" of Malvern and Ledbury at that time.

Our membership (currently 20) is drawn from a wide catchment area covering the south-west of Worcestershire and east Herefordshire. Our main local Community Service focus is applied to the village of Colwall and surrounding communities in and around Malvern. 

Guest visits

We always welcome business men and women who would like to attend one of our meetings, particularly if we have an interesting speaker. If you see anything in our programme of interest then do contact our Secretary and ask to come along.

Potential membership

The prospect of potentially joining a service club such as Rotary may seem a step too far at first. That is why we always accept people visiting our club as a guest at first. Time will tell if you feel this is a club that is doing things you would be interested in and wish to become more involved in.

The same principle applies in reverse as the current members would like to feel that they think you will fit in and add something to what we do as a group. This is not a big deal - time usually gives us the answers to the questions we seek.

To be clear, membership is open to business men and women from 28 years old and upwards. There is no upper age limit.

If you are interested in knowing more about Rotary or if you wish to attend a meeting to see if Rotary Membership would be something that would add something to your life then contact us via the Contact Form.

Rotary UK and international

Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbours, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary's people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.

To find out more about Rotary across the world and what it does visit the main Rotary International website where the objectives and activities of Rotary are explained.

RIBI (Rotary International Britain and Ireland) is the umbrella body for Rotary Clubs in these islands. Its function and information about activity specific to this region may be found at
