Club History

There were in the Borough of Nuneaton and Bedworth in the 1970's two Rotary Clubs, not surprisingly named The Rotary Club of Nuneaton and The Rotary Club of  Bedworth. Both were active lunchtime Clubs and the Nuneaton Club was approaching its optimum size. There was an urgent need for a new Rotary Club and in the changing business and social scene of the time, an evening Club was envisaged.


Eighteen interested men met with local senior Rotarians on April 6th 1978 and a new Rotary Club was conceived.  The Inaugural Dinner of the Rotary Club of Arbury took place on Sept. 7th 1978, at The Chase Hotel, in Nuneaton and the new Club was Chartered on Dec. 5th 1978. The name Arbury comes from the local Arbury Hall, known as the Gothic Gem of the Midlands, and the home of the Newdegate family for centuries. The Elizabethan mansion was gothicised by Sir Roger Newdegate in the 18th century.


The Arbury Club operates across the whole of Nuneaton and is well known as an active Club, initiating many schemes locally and participating at District, National and International levels.  There were 30 Charter Members, of whom 4 are still active members of the Club.
