About us

The Rotary Club of Grimsby was chartered in 1930

From the mid 20th century to the 1970s, Grimsby was the country's premier fishing port, after which quotas and denial of access to  the Icelandic fishing grounds lead to a decline in the fishing fleet.  Since the 1990s there has been a steady expansion in food processing where Grimsby is now a leading centre.  Refineries, chemical factories and other industries lie along the Humber estuary.  More recently the docks area has reinvented itself as a centre for car importation and the servicing of offshore wind farms. The Grimsby - Cleethorpes conurbation is also an administrative and service centre, providing the main shopping and educational facilities for much of northern Lincolnshire. 

Rotary is a worldwide organisation of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.  There are 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto "Service Above Self", Rotary's main objective is "service in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world".

Grimsby Rotary Club is very active in charity work, mainly focusing on local needs. Over the last 9 years, over £180,000 has been raised with principal local beneficiaries being St Andrews Hospice, MacMillan Nurses, Motor Neurone Disease, Child Development Centre, Blue Cross and many many more. The club also has an active social side, with many events for members such as golf, snooker and bowls through to interesting visits and entertainment evenings with wives and partners.
