About us

From our President

"Fulfilling the Promise; Making a Difference".

We are a club of about 30 professionals meeting twice a month for breakfast and between times to socialise, have some fun and contribute to making the world a better place.

As Rotarians, we each have the ability to make a difference; in our club, our local community and in the bigger worldwide community. 

If you want to make a difference too, contact us through the links on this page. 
We would be happy to welcome you for breakfast; come and see what we're like.
