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?

MATHEMATICAL GARDEN FOR ARBOURS PRIMARY ACADEMY

Great team work with Steve, Trevor, Jaime, Clive, Brian and Jackie at the Arbours Academy Primary school.

David George suggested the idea of a "mathematical garden" to the head whilst at the school. He often goes in to afternoon Assembly especially at Christmas.

Phase one was Steve preparing the shapes from second hand decking that was then painted with Sage Cuprinol. Each shape has an internal surface area of 1 square metre.

Phase two of the project took place on Saturday 23 March, with the Mathematical shapes being inset over deturfed and dug cleared beds in the grassed area. So far there are square, rectangle, triangle, diamond and pentagon shaped beds. 

Each shape had a second coat of colour, once in situ. The turf removed was reused where possible to cover worn patches in the grassed area, and watered in.

Once the beds have settled they will be planted with flowers and vegetables by the children, with a bit of help from Jackie and interested club members.
