The Rotary Club of Northampton West was founded in 1969 and for over 49 years has continued to be a source of enjoyment to its members and service to the local community.
We currently have 48 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 worldwide 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 fundraising projects.
In addition to the 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.
