The Rotary Club of Petone

Having Fun, Doing Good

A very warm welcome to the Rotary Club of Petone - Petone is nestled on the northern shore of Wellington Harbour in New Zealand. 

The Rotary Club of Petone was established in 1951 and continues to assist, contribute and lead in many projects across the community and overseas. 

Enjoy your experience here and as you will see, there are numerous opportunities to be involved in working together for the benefit of all in our own and other communities. Join us at Caffiend (Jackson Street, Petone) on Tuesday nights - we meet at 5.30 for a 6.00pm start but let us know in advance so we can confirm catering numbers.

2022 Fair Cancelled - Looking Forward to 2023

Thank you for supporting the Petone Rotary Fair.

Your support of this community event has both raised thousands of dollars for community works in the Petone area and also lifted the profile of this suburb and its community in the wider Wellington and Hutt Valley regions.

Unfortunately, it has been decided not to run the Petone Rotary Fair in 2022.

This has not been an easy decision to come to.

However following consideration of the current COVID 19 situation (including the recent ‘traffic light system’ announcement) and the uncertainty that this has created moving forward for this type of event, it was felt that the club would be better to make a decision now and reduce the overall risk associated with the costs and compliance requirements. 

We are sure that this will be a disappointment to you as many of you have been supporting this event for many years. It is also a disappointment for us especially given the legacy associated with this event both in the club and the wider community. 

However Petone Rotary is a strong club and we will come back to this event more strongly than before.

We look forward to your support for this event in 2023.

The 2023 Petone Fair will be held on Saturday 18th February, 2023. Online applications will be able to be made from 1 October, 2022 at

Thank you Michelle & Murray - Welcome President Kevin

New President Kevin Harris has taken the reins for 2021-2022 and a huge vote of thanks and appreciation goes to Murray and Michelle who were Joint Presidents for 2020-2021.

Kevin has set out his plans for the coming year and we got off to a flying start with all Committees laying out their strategies for the upcoming year.

Hopefully our plans aren't impacted by Covid this year although in saying that, some parts of our international projects will still be on hold. We will continue to support the likes of Polio-Plus, Shelter-Box and Emergency Response kits (ERK's) but will not be able to get "feet on the ground" especially with our water project in Fiji.
