The White Hart Hotel is situated in the main street of Lewes, opposite the law courts. There is limited parking at the Hotel though there are several car parks within a few minutes walk. If visiting therefore, allow yourself plenty of time. If you are a visiting Rotarian, please ensure that you contact an existing member or the Secretary prior to your visit. Our Club Host will usually be at the hotel from about 12.30 pm onwards to greet you on your arrival. The cost of lunch is currently £13. Guests are also very welcome if invited by a member.


The Rotary Club of Lewes was established in 1923. Much fellowship and service has been achieved by many Rotarians over these years. The Rotary motto "Service above Self" has been no idle phrase. The following will tell you how the Rotary Club was established in Lewes, its interests and actions. We are a Service Club, that is to say our members give freely of their time to raise money for projects both local and international and also to provide direct help to local people in need. Our Club currently has over 40 members giving us a great opportunity to serve both at home and Internationally.
