About us

  Welcome to the Rotary Club of Hull Paragon

Been thinking about doing something new this year? Want to give something back to your community? Want to make new friends and have fun? Consider joining Rotary.

Each Rotary Club has its own distinctive atmosphere.  We are a friendly, informal club which meets in the centre of the vibrant city of Hull, UK City of Culture 2017 at the Royal Hotel adjacent to the transport interchange. 

We have roughly half male and half female membership from a wide range of occupations, with some retired members, but many working members too. We were established in 1994 and lead/support a wide range of projects benefiting the local community and beyond.  We are part of District 1040 and our umbrella organisation, Rotary International.

You would be welcome to visit our Club on a 'no obligation' basis to find out what we do and whether it is something which might interest you? You can either join us for a meal first at the Mercure Hull Royal Hotel on a Thursday evening at 6pm for 6.30pm or join us afterwards around 7pm for our meeting and/or speaker.  Find out more.>

Contact us - we look forward to hearing from you.

 Hull is proud to be the UK City of Culture 2017.
