The Rotary Club of Diss and District was formed 1947 and so this Rotary year (2018/19) represents our 71st Anniversary. During that time we have met in a number of different places in the Diss area but for the last twenty years we have met on a Tuesday at the Park Hotel, Park Road, Diss.

For information regarding our regular meetings please check our Calendar which shows the date and subject of each meeting.

From our start in 1947 we have been serving the people of Diss and surrounding area as well as contributing to many International Rotary projects. Rotary is the world’s largest service organisation and the members of the Rotary Club of Diss and District are happy to represent their key principle "Service above Self"
