About us

Rotary Club of Ipswich is the original of the 4 clubs which now serve the town. It was founded in 1923 and now meets weekly for lunch at the Holiday Inn, London Road.  We suggest people arrive from 12.30 so they have a time of fellowship ahead of the 1.00 meal, which on most weeks is followed by a speaker.

We have around 40 members, male and female, and are aiming to lead the way with our Business Membership model.  We're also trailblazing in the youth arena, sponsoring the first High School Interact club in Suffolk and the first two Primary School Rotakids clubs.
