The world has changed out of recognition since the founding of Southport Rotary Club
back in 1922, but one thing remains the same. Whatever the circumstances, there is
always a need for service-minded people to come together and volunteer their time
and efforts to help others less fortunate than themselves.
Ninety five years is a considerable achievement, and the members of the Club are
both proud of the Club’s past and determined that the future will be every bit as
successful. So, in looking back at what has been, dear reader, don’t forget to look
at the rest of our website, and see what is going on, and what will be going on -
as far as our crystal ball will reach!
There are many interesting things to discover. Just click on the section below which

The Club grew rapidly in its first couple of years, from a dozen founding members,
to about a hundred only two years later. Inflation was a problem, with the cost of
lunches going up from 2/6d to 2/9d, but gloom was relieved by the start, in the same
year, of Southport Pleasureland.
