Is Rotary for you?

I want to be part of a Rotary organisation which is enjoyable,
productive and high-profile, supporting individuals and communities;
and at the same time bring a sense of purpose to members involved in
these activities.


Why not come and join us?


Since its formation in 1947, the Rotary Club of Northallerton has held weekly meetings to maintain a bond of fellowship among community-minded members from a broad spectrum of professional backgrounds.  We also enjoy a regular programme of social activities, often shared with other Rotary clubs, and we hold monthly group walks in the surrounding moors and dales. Members bring wide experience and contacts, and collectively help people of all ages in both local and international communities.  The key to being a Rotarian is the desire to do good for others, in person or by raising money for charitable causes. Our motto is “Service Above Self”. [more]
Our Club was formed in 1947 by a group of local businessmen who were interested in providing a service to the community in which they lived and worked whilst enjoying the fellowship which service to the community would bring.

The Club met at lunch times on Fridays in a local cafe and continues to meet on Friday Lunch times in the Allerton Court Hotel.

We have just marked our 70th anniversary but to celebrate our 60th anniversary we donated and erected a Sundial which is now fixed above the front entrance of the Town Hall giving an accurate time check (when the sun shines) to locals and visitors to the town.

Since those early meetings things have changed and the early formality of Rotary has become a relaxed, largely informal gathering of people from all walks of life, who meet weekly at the luncheon meeting and continue to serve the community to the best of their ability.

Our Club is part of the international organisation of Rotary with more than 1¼ million members and with clubs in every part of the world.

We meet at 12.30 pm on Fridays at the Allerton Court Hotel, Dl6 2XF.

The topics are very varied ranging from international projects to hobbies and amusing tales from many parts of the globe. The dress at our meetings is “smart casual” and nobody stands on ceremony. Visitors are made very welcome by the duty “Visitor’s Hosts” and many lasting friendships have sprung up from chance meetings at Rotary events. Regular attendance at weekly meetings is important to maintain fellowship with other members, and members are expected to maintain an attendance of at least 50% of      here it is temporarily impossible for a member to maintain this level of a                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         ttendance because of work or other commitments, arrangements can usually be made to grant leave of absence for a limited time. Each member is placed on a service committee and is encouraged to attend these informal meetings and participate in the various functions and activities which enable the Club to function. The Club is headed by a President who is elected for a term of one year commencing in July of each year. Business is done by the elected Club Council consisting of Club Committee Chairmen and elected officers such as the Secretary and Treasurer. The Club Council reports back to the Club at monthly intervals during a Friday luncheon meeting. Annual subscriptions are levied in July. Rotary Foundation, which is the movement’s international charitable trust, is supported by voluntary donations from members and other fundraising activities.
