HUDDERSFIELD ROTARY CLUB is a long established (1921) Club of men and women from many different backgrounds and walks of life who are prepared to put ‘Service above Self’ – the Rotary motto.

MODERN DAY ROTARY.

  • Offers the opportunity to contribute your energy, talents, and professional skills to make a real difference to the lives of others.
  • Considers membership applications from any member of the community.
  • Meets on a Monday evening (not Bank Holidays or last Monday of the month), but recognizes that the demands of today’s working life mean that it is not possible for everyone to attend every meeting. However, attendance, when possible, is desirable, and does create fellowship.
  • Has an informal dress code.
  • Conducts its business through the internet, or once a month at a normal meeting.
  • Organizes fund raising events to raise money for other Charities, particularly locally, but also on a national and international level.
  • ‘Puts something back’ into the Community by donating money and volunteering time, to improve the lives of others.
  • Provides business connections both at home and abroad through the network of 1.2 million Rotarians in 35,000 Rotary Clubs in over 200 countries.
  • Offers fellowship through regular meetings and social events.
  • Has lots of fun achieving its objectives, considered crucial to a healthy and successful Rotary Club.

FORTHCOMING EVENTS.

Covid update  February 2021.

As the roadmap to freedom progresses, we will be keeping a close watch on when we might be able to meet again face to face. We are in constant touch with the Proprietor of our meeting venue The Keys Restaurant in Huddersfield Town Centre, who tell us they have every intention of re-opening when allowed to do so.

In the meantime, and until further notice, we will hold Zoom meetings twice a month, on the first and third Mondays at 5.00pm. The first of these will be a Business meeting, and the second will be a Guest speaker or some other event. HuddRot will be published once a month, on the second Monday, and our monthly bulletin will be published on the fourth Monday.

Watch the Calendar panel on this page for details of further Zoom meetings, and the commencement of meetings at the Keys.

MAY 2021 Covid news. We have been in touch with the proprietor of The Keys Restaurant, who confirms that he has re-opened, and is looking forward to seeing us back when further restrictions are removed. Our plan at this time is to re-start F2F meetings at The Keys in July. Watch our calendar on the homepage for announcements.

In the meantime, our Business meeting by Zoom on 7th June will include our incoming President’s report on plans for the coming Rotary year – the Centenary Year of Huddersfield Rotary.

CENTENARY CELEBRATIONS. We will be commencing our Centenary Year on 1st JULY 2021. Planning is well in hand for a number of special events, and details will be announced on this website and our Facebook page soon. Watch this space!!

DRAGON BOAT CHALLENGE.  We regret that we have to announce that this year’s event, due to be held on Sat 10th July, has had to be postponed due to the ongoing doubts about Covid restrictions, and the significant rise in confirmed cases of the Delta variant, particularly in Kirklees. All teams already entered or expressed intent have had letters explaining the situation in detail. The event in 2022 is provisionally booked for SAT 9TH JULY 2022.
