ST ALBANS IS A MEDIEVAL MARKET TOWN STEEPED IN ROMAN HISTORY
We are one of three Rotary clubs in St Albans and take our name from the roman city of Verulamium founded on the ancient celtic site of Verlamion - "settlement above the marsh". After the Roman invasion of AD43, it was renamed Verulamium and became the third largest Roman city in Britain. Verulamium Park now covers the area in the Ver valley below the modern City of St Albans. Our club emblem is a bronze statue of Venus found in the excavations of the 1930's by Mortimer Wheeler and is housed in the wonderful museum of Verulamium.
We are part of Rotary International which is the worlds largest service organisation for business and professional people. Using the menu on the left, you can find out more about what we do, including up-to-date information about our weekly meetings and service activities.
