The Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge is an active service club based around the South Pennine market town of Hebden Bridge in the upper Calder Valley in West Yorkshire. Within its area are the villages of Mytholmroyd, Heptonstall, Colden, Cragg Vale, Midgley, Blackshaw Head and Luddenden, as well as numerous small settlements in the Calder Valley between Sowerby Bridge and Todmorden.
Club members are committed to high ethical standards: helping others by giving freely of their time and talents to serve communities at home and overseas.
The club was founded in 1951 and for over 60 years it has been serving the local community and beyond. The club supports many local, national and international charities and good causes through funds raised at a number of popular events, throughout the year.
The club's main events are:
Easter Monday Duck Race
Next Race: 6th April 2015
Wadsworth Parish Boundary Walk

A spectacular, way marked, walk through some of the most beautiful country in the South Pennines, with options for both the serious walker and, shorter, stand alone sections for the leisure rambler and families.
