      President Tom Taylor                       Original Pennant Featuring The

               2016/2017                               Heraldic Griffin of Cuerden Manor


Rotary came knocking on the door in Preston South in the spring of 1966 when our parent club Preston ceded territory embracing the parishes south of the Ribble from Samlesbury to Hoole. It was at this time that the founder members adopted the Griffin which featured on the Club`s early pennants.

The inaugural meeting took place at the Bull & Royal Hotel, Preston on Wednesday 28th September 1966 and 32 members were present.

Six months later the Club was presented with the Club Charter again at the Bull & Royal on 20th March 1967 and now celebrates this Charter each year on the first Tuesday in February. Our 50th Charter Anniversary was held on the 7th February 2017 at The Wellington Park Hotel,Leyland where members and guests totalling over 170 were entertained by comedian Lea Roberts and singing group Voce. This was a special occasion and our two founder members who are still active in the Club, Joe Mather and Tom Wignall were presented with Paul Harris Sapphires to mark their long service achievement.

From the very beginning the Club has been served by a succession of able Presidents and diligent officers drawn annually from a lively and interested membership, all of whom have consistently contributed to the undoubted stability of a club which now has 35 members.
