Important Notice Regarding 2017 Community Raffle

Due to circumstances beyond the control of Longbenton with Killingworth Rotary Club our annual community raffle draw did not take place on 11th July as advertised. We have now rescheduled the draw to take place on 18th July at our regular weekly meeting. We are endeavoring to contact as many organisations as possible who took tickets to sell, to inform them of the delay in drawing the raffle. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused but sadly this delay was out of our control.

Winning ticket numbers will be displayed on this website following the revised draw date of 18th July.

A Warm Rotary Welcome!

Welcome to web site of the Rotary Club of Longbenton with Killingworth commonly known as LBWK. As a club we were chartered in 1973, with the assistance of Gosforth Rotary Club. We have been a dual gender club for many years. LBWK is a particularly friendly and fun club, believing that fellowship and friendship amongst our members is particularly important. Consequently our meetings are full of banter and laughter.

Why don't you come along and join us to see for yourself? 

Please note that if you would like to join us for a meal, whether as a visiting Rotarian, or as a prospective member, please contact either: -

Claire Brind on 01670 512189 - who is our Club Secretary or
John Shaw on 0191 2363615 - who is our Dinner Secretary.

Our Dinner Secretary needs to be advised of any late apologies by 12.00 noon on the Monday before the meeting.

This site is maintained by Stuart Jackson who can be contacted on 07740 632013.
