A message from our President     


 David Close, Alistair Holmes, Geoff Turner, Andrew Redman, Bob Brownlow, Stephen Short.

The Rotary Club of Grantham was formed in 1931 and presently has 35 active members.

The Club meets for lunch every Monday at 12.50pm (excluding Bank Holidays) at the Urban Hotel. Visiting Rotarians and guests of members are always welcome.

 Our Club is a member of Rotary International which is a Global Service Organisation with 1.2 million members in 34,000 clubs around the world.

The movement was originally founded in Chicago in 1905 by an American business man Paul Harris.

Service to the community has been the cornerstone of Rotary since its earliest days.

Our club’s major annual fund raising project is Swimarathon which was inaugurated in 1990 and through the efforts of the sponsors of the swimmers more than £700,000 has been raised and distributed to local charities.

 We also support International Charities either individually or through Rotary Foundation.

Our club is very “hands on“when it comes to help in the community.

We assist local school students with their career development through our “Mock Interview” programme and also sponsor candidates to attend Rotary Youth Leadership courses.

These are just a few of the many projects that we are involved in. As well as carrying out our community service work we don’t forget to have fun.

We have a programme of social activities which are always well supported by the membership.

This gives you a flavour of what Rotary and our club in particular is about.

This year 2017/18 is going to be quite unique in that six previous Presidents ( see photo opposite) are to be "recycled" and each be President for a two month term.

Our long term sucession plan is in place as we have a President Elect and a President Nominee who will become President in 2018/19 and 2019/20 respectively.

We welcome new members – if you would like to find out more and perhaps come along to a meeting then please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. – we would love to hear from you!
