Leominster is located in beautiful countryside in The Welsh Marches, a rural area that borders Wales, some fourteen miles north of Hereford.
This market town serves North Herefordshire, although the cattle market closed some years ago. The town was founded on the wool trade and the local Ryeland sheep were famous for their high quality wool, much favoured by Queen Elizabeth I.
Traditionally Leominster is known as the land that time forgot.
Agriculture remains important but now employs far fewer people. Tourism, light engineering and the antiques trade are growing in importance.
The Club (No. 19321) was granted its charter on 30th June 1949. It has 22 Members & 4 Honorary Members.
It is twinned with The Rotary Club of La Fleche, France and an exchange visit takes place each summer.
We will be pleased to talk to anyone who might be interested in joining us, or hearing a bit more about what we do for the Community.
Just pop into the Golf Club for an informal chat around 6pm on a club meeting night, normally the first and third Tuesday of the month.
