The Rotary Club of Northampton West was founded in 1969 and for over 48 years has continued to be a source of enjoyment to its members and service to the local community.
We currently have 43 members with a wide mix of social and vocational interests.
Members largely come from senior level professional and management backgrounds in private and public organisations.
We welcome both men and women as members of the club. They use their professional and organisational skills to help people of all ages with local community projects and charities in Northampton and help with international Rotary projects such as world wide eradication of polio.
We meet every Friday for lunch in Northampton. We enjoy a meal and share lively good humoured conversation. We often have a guest speaker and occasionally we hold debates and discussions. Sometimes our Friday meetings are devoted to planning and preparing for our community support and fund raising projects.
In addition to our weekly meeting we hold many social events and fundraising activities, as well as helping the local community. We work together with the other three Rotary clubs in Northampton and with the Inner Wheel club of Northampton West.
Rotarians and partners sprung a surprise on Rotarian Richard Arnold at the recent partners evening with the presentation to him of a Paul Harris Fellowship.
In the citation, Richard was commended for the service he has given to Rotary and the community over many years as a Rotarian, meeting the highest ideals of Rotary International.
The club welcomes new members who support our service ethos of "Service above Self".
Come and join us, we are always looking for new members.
