Welcome to Beccles, a market town on the River Waveney and the southern gateway to the Broads. Beccles was a major fishing port until the estuary silted up but the river in many ways is still the centre of this market town. Beccles has many interesting places to visit and good venues to eat and drink. Founded sometime in the 900s its history surrounds the visitor. From the many gates - 'gate' being the Viking word for street - to the idiosyncratic church tower built separately from the church there is something of interest round every corner.
Club members meet most Thursdays for a meal and often enjoy a talk on a subject of general interest by a Rotarian member or invited guest. The current Rotarians of the Rotary Club of Beccles benefit from friendly good humour and this feature helps the meetings and other fellowship events to be enjoyed by all. Events include the successful "Young Muscian" Competition and forms will be available for the next chance to take part on Sunday 28th February 2016 very soon. Funds for the club's charitable trust are raised by organizing various events each year such as the 'Beccles Cycle for Life' in May - please see website www.becclescycleforlife.org for details and an application form - and the 'Hospital Fete' on the last Saturday in June.
