Hexham Rotary is one of the oldest Rotary Clubs in the UK being founded in 1927. Despite this we are a forward looking club with an ambitious program to keep our members busy helping less fortunate people at home and overseas.

Each Rotary Year runs from 1 July to the 30th June and our President this year is Roy Dallison. The club is Roycompletely democratic and the members have a final say in any decisions. A Club Council of 10 members oversees the running of the club but the major work is done in committees or teams of members each led by an experienced Rotarian. These teams are reponsible for the following activities.

The "Events" team looks after the programme of events for Club Members

The "Community Service" team is responsible for organising events and providing help in the local community

The "Youth" team provides a programme to help the young people in Hexham and the surrounding area

The "International" team looks for projects to help overseas, perhaps in a disaster area or in a third world country where they might provide safe drinking water for example.

The "Foundation" team have a special responsibility for encouraging members to donate to Rotary's own charity - The Rotary Foundation-. This charity helps fund club projects across the world with its major project the elimination of Polio.

The "Membership" team looks after recruitment and membership retention.
