About Dudley

The Object of Rotary
The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of Service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
  • The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
  • The application of the ideal of Service in each Rotarian’s personal, business and community life;
  • The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of Service.

The Club is one of the oldest in our district and is proud to have given over 95 years of service to the local community and overseas. We currently have around 35 members.
Our achievements include:
* constructing and managing Rotary House, a warden controlled home for over 50 senior citizens in Dudley;
* supplying the first emergency cardiac resuscitation vehicles in the region;
* construction of 40 bungalows to re-house leper families in Bargarh, Orissa, India;
* initiating Group Study exchanges with Warsaw, Poland even before the iron curtain came down,
and many more.
We are pleased to be twinned with the Rotary Club of Brest-Côte des Légendes in Brittany, France and participate in joint projects with our French friends.
