Visiting the Club


Anyone is welcome to come and visit our club to find out about our meetings and what we’re about as a club.  

Our regular meetings are held on the first and third Thursday of every month at the the St. James’s Club, Manchester. Each dinner meeting includes a 2 course meal and an after dinner speaker from various causes or walks of life.  
If you know one of our existing members and would like to come as their guest, usually they will pay for your dinner that the meeting you attend.  However, if you would like to come as a guest of the club to visit one meeting the cost is a minimal £20, to cover the cost of food at the meetings.  

If you would like to find out about our upcoming meetings please see the Events page. To book a place at one of our regular meetings please contact us at




Becoming a Member

Once you’ve found out about us and decided to join, the process is simple.  You will be nominated for membership by current members of the club and will have to apply to for membership to our club secretary.  

Our club council meets weekly and your membership will be voted on at our of these regular meetings.  

Following this you will be brought into membership at a following dinner meeting when all members are present.  You will then receive a welcome pack and a Rotary Lapel badge to wear out and about.  

Then you can join in with all of the activities of the club.  We’re always looking for enthusiastic people to come and join in with our activities and bring their skills to put towards our events and projects.  



Membership Responsibilities


​​Membership responsibilities are quite simple, regular attendance at the twice monthly dinner meetings.  An informal register is taken at meetings to keep track on attendance of members of the club.  

Members are also asked to support our various events and projects, which can include helping charities or helping with running of our meetings.

Members can, if they wish take a role on the club council, however they do need to be voted in.  There are a number of service committees that need to be supported (see the About page for more information).  There are also weekly and monthly running activities that can be supported to keep our club going. 

In addition to this members are expected to uphold the values of Rotary, most importantly, ‘Service Above Self’.  More information about this can be found on the Rotary International website. 

There are so many opportunities to serve in Rotary and a lot of it is up to you as a member.  There is little obligation, but plenty of opportunity.  It is an amazing way to put back into your community, from local to worldwide.
