Kings Norton


A warm welcome awaits you at the Rotary Club of Kings Norton!  If you are a Rotarian, come on a fellowship visit either alone or with others from your club.  We meet on most Tuesdays at 12.45 pm for luncheon although we miss about six each year due to public holidays so please check before coming.  If you are not a Rotarian but wish to visit to find out about us you are equally welcome and will find us a friendly group enjoying good fellowship.  Contact Colin Guy on 0121 444 2020.

The Rotary Club of Kings Norton was formed in 1955 as a daughter club of the Rotary Club of Birmingham.  Our membership consists of professional and business people working or living in our general area of Kings Norton and Kings Heath.   We are part of Rotary International (RI) and there are approximately 1.2 million Rotarians worldwide with clubs in most democratic countries.  Our motto is “Service above self”.

We pursue our Rotary objectives in various ways including engaging with schools to provide entry to the many annual Rotary Youth Competitions ranging from Young Writer through Technology Tournaments, Youth Leadership and other projects. We also have a close association with a local school for children with special needs.  We make regular collections at supermarkets in our area in support of a range of charities including St Mary’s Hospice, Acorns, Midlands Air Ambulance and natural disaster relief.  We have also raised funds to support the Patients Benefit Fund which is for military personnel under treatment at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.  Our own charity fund provides help where possible for local people young and old.

On the international scene we provide financial help for students in a school in Zambia.  In addition, we support the RI charity called Rotary Foundation which is the largest private charity in the world and is dedicated to engendering worldwide peace and understanding. It’s current major project which started in 1985 is the elimination of polio worldwide in conjunction with other agencies, not least being the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation which is trebling all monies raised by Rotary for this purpose.  As at January 2014, Rotary International has contributed US$1.28 billion to eliminating polio worldwide. The project is aiming for completion by 2018.

We have a lot to offer. We also need your support if you are not a Rotarian.  Please get in touch.
