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.

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.
