Welcome

Welcome to the Billingshurst & District Rotary Club.

from our President and Vice President Bruce Wallace and Ann Clark

Thank you for visiting this web site. Our motto in Rotary is service above self so if you like having fun and socialising with others while helping your community come and join us. We normally have a meal together and often have a speaker.  Help us change your community for the better and in turn change the world.

We are part of Rotary International, a charitable organisation of 1.2 million neighbours, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world.

The Billingshurst & District Rotary Club supports both local and international projects by giving our time, and through numerous fundraising activities. We are a friendly group of like-minded people with a shared passion for helping others and enriching lives for the better.
