Welcome to the
Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge
For information about the club, the Hebden Bridge Vintage Weekend,

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.
