Visiting the Club


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

Our regular meetings are held on the first and third Thursday of every month at the St. James’s Club, Manchester. Each dinner meeting includes a 2-course meal and followed by a discussion on upcoming projects, events, or a speaker from various causes or walks of life.  

If you would like to find out about our upcoming meetings please see the Events page where you can register to attend. Alternatively please feel free to contact us at where one of our representatives can answer any questions that you have.




Becoming a Member


Once you’ve found out about us and decided to join, the process is simple.  Just ask a member at the next meeting for an application form, fill it out, and either hand it in at the next meeting or email it to

Your application will then be reviewed by the Club Council.  

Following this, you will be welcomed into the Club at the next meeting where you will receive a welcome pack and a Rotary Lapel badge to wear out and about.  

From day one we encourage our new members to get stuck in with our projects and have an active role in making the Club a success.

Membership Responsibilities
Whilst our Club meets twice a month and we encourage our members to make both of these meetings, we also realise that everyone's lives are busy and some more so than others.  For this reason, we have created two membership plans outlined in the Introduction Document.

The best way to get the most out of Rotary is to support our various events and projects, which can include helping charities or helping with the running of our meetings.
Members can also take a role on the Club Council; the decision-making body within the Club consisting at minimum of the President, President-Elect, Treasurer, Secretary and 2 members. There are also a number of service committees, but for the time being, we have swapped these to project teams on a project to project basis.
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 in the Guiding Principles
There are so many opportunities in Rotary and a lot of it is up to you as a member, so get involved and help create the change you want to see.
