The Rotary Club of Hoddesdon
The Rotary Club of Hoddesdon was Chartered on 12th September 1947, the year of the 'Big Freeze,' the year of the marriage of Princess Elizabeth to Lt Philip Mountbatten (now H M The Queen and H R H The Duke of Edinburgh) and the year of the breaking of the sound barrier for the first time.
We are a friendly bunch of individuals who share a common interest in local community service, making a difference to those in need and enjoying life and the fellowship of our Club to the full.
We meet each Monday at 12:45 at Broxbourne Civic Hall for lunch, usually with a speaker, to enjoy fellowship and pursue the Rotary ideal of "Service Above Self"
We give new members a warm welcome so if our approach to life seems similar to your own we would like to hear from you.
We have around active members ranging in age from mid-thirties well into retirement. We also run a very healthy and thriving “Friends of Hoddesdon Rotary” organisation to allow those people who are unable to participate fully in Rotary Life the opportunity of attending our events and getting as involved as they feel able.
Hoddesdon is a market town in the Borough of Broxbourne in Hertfordshire. It is situated a little North of London on the main London to Cambridge trunk road. It is well-served by fast rail links into the CIty of London, where a number of our members work or worked.
We have close links to the Rotary Clubs of surrounding towns and areas and in particluar to those of Amwell, Hertford Shires, Ware and Hertford. Many events are designated as “five clubs” events and are supported by members from all clubs.
