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 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 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.

Trevor George, President of the Rotary Club of Northampton West, said: “Rotary is a big story. Our members change lives, help communities and make the world a better place, and we need more business people, particularly younger people, to bring innovative new ideas into our organisation. Our clubs consist of men and women who volunteer their efforts to improve the quality of life in their communities and beyond. Clubs are open to all, and our membership represents a cross-section of local business and professional leaders.
“A lot of people are still unsure what Rotary is about, but our members are involved in many activities ranging from volunteering at food banks, fun days, dragon boat race and musical events to running youth competitions and raising money for disasters overseas. At the same time, we have a huge amount of fun and run a wide range of social activities.”
