If you like what you see here and below, please get in touch. We extend a warm welcome to visitors and prospective members.
We are a friendly club of just under 50 men and women, sharing lots of fun and fellowship.
On Mondays we meet at Pirelli Stadium, the home of Burton Albion Football Club. Usually, after lunch, a speaker presents a topic relevant to our community, our charity work, or to Rotary more widely.
To sustain our help for those in need - locally, nationally and internationally - we raise funds through concerts, a Sandwich Board March, street collections, shows, quizzes, suppers, dinners, and anything else that springs to mind!
To read more about our Club and the Rotary movement in general, do explore 'What we do' in the menu top left. Our Club and Weekly Bulletins tell you more about our current activities. Some past activities are shown below.
If you would like to put something back into the community while gaining a whole new group of like-minded friends, come and see us in action. Contact us to arrange a visit to one of our meetings.
On 1st July 2017 Graham Dean became the 82nd President of Burton Rotary Club.
For its work with young people during 2016/17, Burton Rotary Club received the District Youth Development Cup, the third year in succession.

A new van for Langan's

These volunteers transport blood and life saving medical supplies to NHS Trusts across our region. Our support helps with their running costs.
