Welcome to the Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside

Being a Rotarian is a challenging, stimulating and rewarding experience.

The Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside has been supporting the Bishopdale Burnside and Greater Christchurch community for over 46 years with a number of projects and fundraising events.

We welcome enquiries from interested persons who wish to learn more about Rotary.

We also welcome visiting Rotarians to our meetings.

Members gather for fellowship at our venue which is the Quality Hotel Elms at about 5.30 pm each Monday for a 6 pm meal.

After a dinner a short business section commences at 6.30 pm which is generally followed by a speaker who addresses the club on a topic of interest to Rotary.

Meetings generally finish at 7.30 pm.
