District 1180


Join Rotary

Welcome to the “Join Rotary” website of Rotary International District 1180, a District that covers the whole of North Wales, Merseyside, The Wirral and parts of Cheshire, Shropshire and Lancashire and embraces a variety of communities ranging from the pastoral peacefulness and tranquillity of rural areas to the hustle and bustle and vibrancy of the City of Liverpool. Indeed there are a total of four cities within the District, the others being Chester, Bangor and the newly-designated St Asaph - each of which has at least one Rotary club presence. In addition there is also The Royal Town of Caernarfon.

Liverpool was one of the first clubs outside USA to be chartered, on 1st August 1913. From there Rotary clubs spread throughout the UK and Ireland to where we are now.

Whilst not unique, the District can lay claim to being one of the few represented in two countries, and uses two languages, Welsh and English. It is claimed by the inhabitants of Liverpool that there is also a third language – Scouse!!

Rotarians in the District actively embrace and exemplify the two main themes of Rotary International, namely “Service above Self” and “We’re for Communities” and are active in their local communities and in overseas projects, providing support, assistance, advice and guidance to the clubs and communities both in actively practical and financial terms.

Rotary International welcomes as members of its various clubs any person of good standing regardless of gender, ethnicity, beliefs or politics.

With its range of cultures and environments there is a choice of clubs within the District to suit most people within easy travelling distance of where they live. Accessing the various club websites will give you a flavour of what there is on offer and contact with the individual clubs is easy and without any obligation to commit at this stage. Should you need help in finding a suitable club then contact the chair of the Membership team who will be pleased to help you.
