We have Fun!
We are a dynamic Club of male and female members with a wide variety of ages and backgrounds. We are members of Rotary because we enjoy being members of Rotary giving Service above Self whilst having fun!
The enormous sense of achievement we experience doing something really worthwhile, even if it is in just one of the many areas we are involved in. is matched only by the enormous amount of fun we have!

Rotary Theme 2022/23
July sees the beginning of a new Rotary year with Club, District and International Presidents and Officers beginning their terms. Every year the Rotary International President introduces his theme for his year urging Rotarians to follow it.
Rotary International President Jennifer Jones, who is the 1st female President, through her theme for the year Imagine is asking people to imagine the possibilities in the change they can make to transform the world.
She is urging people to dream big and harness their connections and the power of Rotary to turn those dreams into reality. “Imagine, a world that deserves our best where we get up each day knowing that we can make a difference.”
The Rotaract, Inner Wheel and Probus Clubs were initially sponsored by The Rotary Club of Belfast and are now run autonomously. Further details can be seen here.
