About us

We are a club centred on the market town of Guisborough and the village of Great Ayton on either side of the Roseberry Topping on the northern edge of the Cleveland Hills.  Guisborough is the ancient capital of Cleveland and is noted for its lovely 14th Century Gothic Priory.  Great Ayton was the boyhood home of Captain James Cook, the British explorer & navigator.   We also serve the communities of East Cleveland - Lingdale, Boosbeck, Margrove Park and Charltons.

The Club was founded in 1965 and our members volunteer their skills, experience and contacts to benefit individuals, communities and charities - locally, nationally and internationally.  Over the years the Club has raised and distributed many tens of thousands of pounds.  Throughout all of what we do the emphasis is on everyone enjoying themselves.   

The Club usually meets on a Thursday evening in the beautiful setting of Gisborough Hall.  


Guests, prospective members and members of other Rotary clubs are always welcome.  We frequently invite speakers to meetings to talk on subjects of local interest.  We also have special events such as a Gourmet Wine and Food evening and go on outings to concerts, theatres, industry and community projects.   We have links with Nunthorpe School where an Interact branch has been set up.  Interact is Rotary International's service club for young people aged 12 to 18.
