Welcome to the website of the
Rotary Club of Hadleigh, Suffolk
The Rotary Club of Hadleigh has 12 members, 8 of whom live in Hadleigh, but 2 come from the surrounding villages of Layham and Claydon. Our newest lady member lives in Great Bricett, and the second newest (also a lady) lives in Great Horkesley, but her business address is in Hadleigh.
The good news is that Rotary is changing. Attracting new members in recent years has been adversely affected by the perception that Rotary seeks a high commitment, is formal and selective in membership. This has put off many people whose lives in the 21st century do not allow the luxury of attending weekly meetings, dressing for the occasion, etc.
Rotary International has at last realised that all this must change and many rules and regulations have been relaxed. Clubs now have the power to arrange their own operating structure to suit the needs of members. There is flexibility in meeting arrangements, attendance requirements and membership rules, to help attract wider interest. Members may now give just as much time as they are able, without worrying about commitment rules, etc.
Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) has over 55,000 Rotarians in 1,855 clubs. It is an integral part of Rotary International, the world's first service organisation.
