Are you interested in joining Rotary ?
Rotary nowadays is far more flexible in it's approach to membership - it might not be what you think. No harm is asking, especially if you feel you would like to give a little of your valuable time and expertise to support your local community.details
A warm welcome to all website visitors whether you are a member, a visiting Rotarian, a Friend of Rotary, a guest or potentially a new member.
Please feel free to explore our new website layout by using the various tabs and menus.
We hope the website will be of interest to you and provide you with the information you are looking for.
We also hope that the website gives you a flavour of what our particular Rotary Club is involved in within the Soham and surrounding village communities.
Our style is generally informal but focused on helping within the local community where we can.
We are a small Club of 18 men and women with membership ages from 38 to 95 who are, or have been, engaged in many different professions with a broad spectrum of interests. Members live in Soham and the surrounding area including Fordham, Cottenham, Ely, Wicken, Burwell, Downham Market and even one in London.
We also have one associate member who is able to join us periodically.
Thank you for visiting our website!
