About us

Welcome to The Rotary Club of Ingatestone including 
Rotarians of Kelvedon Hatch & Villages - our Satellite Club

Rotary Club of Ingatestone was founded in 1975 and has been active in the Ingatestone area ever since. our 22 members, both men and women, give service to the community and meet socially as friends. We have FUN.

We meet for a dinner meeting on the 1st and 3rd Thursday at Ivy Hill Hotel, Margaretting and also on the 2nd Thursday for an informal social get together at a local venue. Our meetings include a programme of talks, presentations and discussions, which help us plan ways in which we can be of use and to raise funds supporting local, national and international causes.

If you are like us, and want to enjoy yourselves, make new friends, listen to interesting speakers, and at the same time, give something back to the community, then you can join us in making this happen. 
If you live in the Ingatestone or Kelvedon Hatch area and you have been considering widening your circle of friends while giving support to the local community and to support needy causes overseas, we could be the friends you haven't yet met.
The Rotary motto is "Service above Self" and we are folk from all walks of life who share a common interest in helping others less fortunate than ourselves.

If you do not have time to take up full membership, you might prefer to become a Friend of Rotary. In this way you can still enjoy some social events, help with charity projects or just get a taste of what Rotary is all about. Please CLICK HERE for further details.
