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 at the Sunley Management Centre at the University of Northampton for lunch on Mondays.  We raise funds for, and plan and implement service projects, both locally and internationally.

We also have lunchtime speakers, usually related to our  objective of providing service to others, but sometimes of general interest.

Some members meet on Tuesday evenings at Richmond Village, where they have a similar programme of service projects and occasional speakers.  The two groups meet regularly for fellowship and joint fund-raising events.

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 Programme options above to see what we have done in the past, and what we have planned for the the future?

Rotary - Make a World of Difference

Join Rotary and make a world of difference to your own community, to the lives of those less fortunate around the world, to your fellow club members - like-minded men and women of all ages - and, just as important, to yourself! The projects Rotarians get involved in are incredibly fulfilling, worthwhile and rewarding - and there's plenty of fun involved.

They Came Up Smelling Of Roses

The might of the other Northampton Rotary Clubs were seen off at Sixfields, when our team triumphed in the Rosebowl.  This is a competition between the four Rotary Clubs in Northampton held on an annual basis, with the previous year’s winner deciding the sport and venue.

A brilliant effort by the Allitts, Alan Jukes, Riaz Bhatti, Jamie Thompson and yours truly took the trophy back again, with a total score of over 1000 points.

Meanwhile, Andrew Cowling took on members of the Northampton Rotaract Club in a separate lane, but the result of that is not reported.
