Our History

Formed in 1991 from the first International Rotary Meeting First given permission in 1976

Following relocations of that first group, 1991 saw the original group that moved from Albir divided into two clubs; Costa blanca North Javea and Costa Blanca North Calpe. Our raison d’être is to bring together Rotary and like minded people for an informal lunch every Tuesday during the year with the exceptions of close down across the Christmas and Summer periods. Partners are hugely welcome as a normality. The club has proved the grounding for many lasting friendships between like-minded people here on the Costa Blanca.

Members are always welcome to bring guests who may be visiting them on holiday. Because so many of our members travel to and from to the UK the Chair for meetings rotates between members so our President position changes frequently.  We stage a Christmas Party Luncheon close to the beginning of December which is widely recognised as a particularly jolly occasion and whatever funds we have mustered troughout the year are usually donated to the orphanage children of the area in time for the festivities

The majority of members are also members of Rotary clubs around the world or may even be ex Rotarians. We are not heavily involved in fund-raising efforts but a small supplement of a couple of Euros is included in the price of the meal For members there is an annual membership fee of €10 per couple which also swells our annual donations to local charities. It is the policy of the Club to keep our charitable donations local.

Whilst it is always helpful for the restaurant to have advance notice of how many are likely to turn up it is not mandatory to pre-book. Just turn up and be welcomed.
