About us


Northampton is a large market town in the East Midlands, approx. 67 miles Northwest of London on the River Nene, and is the county town of Northamptonshire.

The RotNorthampton Guildhallary Club of Northampton was founded in 1921 and now meets for lunch on Mondays, when we have business and committee meetings, as well  frequent speakers, usually related to our  objective of providing service to others, but sometimes of general interest.

Our Satellite Group members meet on Tuesday evenings when they have a similar programme of service projects and occasional speakers.

The two groups meet regularly for fellowship and joint fund-raising events.  We raise funds for, and plan and implement service projects, both locally and internationally.

We welcome anyone who may be interested in joining us to see what we are all about at lunch on Mondays, or on Tuesday evenings with our Satellite Group.

This website is also full of stories about what we do, and if you have the time why not take a look at the drop down options in the "beefburger" menu above left, to see what we have done in the past and what we have planned for the the future?

Exciting Environmental Project for Schools

Rotary Northampton is organising a project to introduce young children to the 3Rs - Reduce waste, Reuse resources and Recycle materials - for children in years KS1 or KS2

We will be approaching local schools in the next few weeks to invite entries.

This project involves "Junk Modelling", using materials etc, which are often part of the curriculum.

This picture shows an example constructed from recycled materials. The centre and top are made from a carboard tube, the engines are plastic water bottles filled with plastic bags and it is all held together with elastic bands. The silver covering is aluminium foil and the paint used is children’s colouring.

Individual children are asked to design and build anything using only items from their recycled waste bin.

The items should not be bigger than 40cm by 40cm by 60cm high.

When joining and painting the item, thought should be given to the environment.

The school will judge which they believe is the best by the end of the spring term.  The winning item will then go forward to be judged against other schools in the town.

The winning pieces will be displayed in the Grosvenor Centre, and members of the public will vote for the winner in March 2020.

Each school that presents its winning pupil's project for final judging will receive £50

The winning school will be awarded £100

This Is Your Environment

What is the legacy we will leave our wonderfully talented and energetic children who are tomorrow’s World? They will inherit all our failures as well as our successes.

Greta Thonberg, the 15-year-old Swedish student has reached into the hearts and minds of people all over the World and woken them to the terrible impact we are having on our Planet.  What a fascinating force of Nature she is.

May I challenge all Rotarians to support her in her efforts to make real change?
