Santa has been!
Over £1000 was raised by Arbroath Rotary Club in the run up to Christmas.
Thank you to everyone who came along to Morrisons and contributed to the sucess of the event. Once again the community of Arbroath has supported the activities of their local Rotary Club Santa and this support was truly appreciated.
The club is pleased to announce that all monies made during his appearance with Arbroath Rotary Club will soon be presented to CHAS, the children’s hospice and the local Family Support Group who will bring some cheer to the less fortunate people in our community.

STOP PRESS - Rotarian Stu to get Tattoo for Nyumbani!
Member Stuart Scott will be going to the African Village of Nyumbani in Kenya accompanied by his wife Audrey and Stuart says that by changing himself with a tattoo he will encourage himself to make a positive change and make a difference to the people of Nyumbani.
Stuart and Audrey will be painting of the girls' secondary school and carrying out other maintenance activities in the village.

So now to business ....Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Arbroath, based in the historic Scottish east coast fishing port 17 miles north of Dundee.
Our thirty eight members are always delighted to welcome visiting Rotarians and we hope that if you're travelling to or in Scotland, you'll join the Club's Members in fellowship at one of our weekly meetings.
The town is home to the world famous smokie (smoked haddock) and was the setting for the signing of the Declaration of Scottish Independence in the presence of King Robert the Bruce in 1320. The ruins of Arbroath Abbey, where the signing took place, still dominate the town's skyline. The club meets every Thursday in the Meadowbank Inn, just outside Arbroath, at 5.30 for 6pm - see Meeting Information to the right of this text!
