About our Club
An introduction to the Rotary Club of Marlow Thames
Taking its name from the River Thames that flows alongside the historic town of Marlow, our Club was created to complement Marlow Rotary Club to solve the difficulty that some members were unable to attend lunchtime meetings due to their work commitments.
To find out more about Marlow why not visit the web site of The Marlow Society or the Marlow Town web site?
The club was founded in 1997 and currently has in excess of 30 members both male and female with ages ranging from under thirty to over seventy.

We meet at the Kings Head Public House in Little Marlow on Wednesday evenings at 7.45pm but there is always someone in the bar from 7.30pm. We enjoy a two course meal followed by a varied programme of activities. Meetings may include an invited speaker, a discussion on a topic of interest or a fellowship activity. It is always worth checking before you visit as occasionally we meet off-site.
In addition to the regular club meetings there is a varied programme of social and fund-raising events for members and their families to take part in. These have included a Petanque evening, trip to the Windsor races, summer BBQ, theatre trip and so much more!
Of course we would not be a Rotary Club without the work that we do in the local community, nationally and internationally. We are proud to have supported many individuals and charities.
Our main fundraising events each year are the Cookham Regatta, held on the first Saturday in September and the Santa Fun Run. The regatta we organise jointly with the Rotary Club of Cookham Bridge. A wonderful day out for all the family with a range of water events from Dongolas to Dragon Boats plus lots of landside attractions. For more information click on Cookham Regatta. The Fun Run is held early in December and is organised jointly with Marlow Rotary Club. For more information click on Santa Fun Run.
We always welcome visitors to our Club, so please come along and join us. Whether a guest to Rotary or fellow Rotarian, you will always be made most welcome. We look forward to meeting you. If you would like more information please contact us.
