About us

 

Locks Heath Rotary Club meet at the Navigator P.H., Swanwick, 1st and 3rd Tuesdays in the month at 6.30 for 7.00pm and also if there is a fifth Tuesday in the month.

NB: This is a change with effect from Tuesday 3 April 2018.  The Club now only meets twice a month, in the evening, 6.30 for 7.00pm. There are no lunchtime meetings. Details of meetings with dates can be found in the Calendar section.


The Club, which was founded in 1972, currently has 23 members. Most weeks the Club has an interesting speaker, details can be found under 'Meetings'.   The Club organises a number of fund raising events during the year, such as Burns Night, and an International Evening, as well as events such as a Summer Party for a group of elderly members of the local community. Our major annual fund raising event is a Christmas  collection at the local Locks Heath Shopping Village.

 

We also take part in local events including Warsash Festival, and 'Kids Out', and annually organise an evening music competition for local schools and works with Brookfield Community School on youth projects such as 'Youth Speaks' and 'Young Writer'. The Club sponsors the Lord Wilson Academy at Coldeast.

Most of the money raised during the year goes to local community projects, including Communicare, local Scouts, Mayor's Charities, Jubilee Sailing Trust etc. Some goes to help with Rotary International humanitarian charities, such as Wateraid, and Aquaboxes or Shelterboxes, which provide safe drinking water or temporary shelter and other essentials for families after disaster such as earthquakes, flood or tsunami.

Vocational visits are arranged for the members, these have recently included informative visits to Grifffon Hovercraft, Mercedes Benz World, Brookland Museum, The Watercress Line and these are often combined with visits to other Clubs. Above all the intention of the members is to have fun whilst taking an interest in our local and worldwide community and helping where we can.
 

The Members of the Rotary Cub of Locks Heath welcome you to their website

and hope that you will look around to learn about our activities. The Club is open to new members of either gender, and anyone interested in membership, or supporting us by means of a Business Partnership, should contact Club Secretary Stephen Kirby at secretary@locksheathrotary.org.uk
