Heart of England Rotary
The District brings together 63 Clubs and some 1,650 Rotarians in an area centred on Birmingham and the West Midlands and including parts of Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Staffordshire. From Lichfield in the North to Shipston-on-Stour in the South, from Rugby in the East to Bewdley in the West we serve those multi-racial communities which are truly at England's heart.
