Message from the Club President

Thank you for taking the time to explore this web site.  I hope that you find it an interesting insight into our activities.

Rotary is a service organisation which exists to help those in need and to provide fellowship and support to its members, whilst maintaining high ethical standards.  Or, to put it another way, it is about becoming involved actively with a reputable organisation, helping others, having fun and making new friends.

 If that sounds interesting, why don’t you come along and meet us?  It will give me great pleasure to welcome you to one of our regular Monday evening meetings at the Lion Hotel.

If you want to find out more about us, are interested in membership or want to help with a specific project, please come and visit us or contact any Rotarian.

     I hope to meet you soon!

Hilary Surga

About the Club

BELPER is an historic industrial town situated in Derbyshire, eight miles north of Derby on the A6 trunk road to Buxton and Manchester.  It is situated in the World Heritage Corridor based on the Derwent Valley.

The Rotary Club of Belper was formed in 1930 and over the years it has been supported by local industrialists and business men.  The current membership of 29 is drawn mainly from Belper and the neighbouring village of Duffield.  To recognise the fact that about half of our members come from Duffield, and that a lot of our activities, especially youth work, take place in the village, we renamed our club “The Rotary Club of Belper and Duffield” in 2006.

We are an active dual gender club with three lady members. In addition to the weekly meetings, we are involved in a number of projects and activities - last year we raised some £8,000 which went to support eighteen local, national and international initiatives.
