About us


Due to the corona virus outbreak we will not be holding any further 'in person' meetings or other activities until further notice. We will however be meeting virtually via Zoom and you're welcome to join us - e-mail webmaster@clausentumrotary.org.uk for joining details. 

Otherwise you're welcome to contact us at generalinquiries@clausentumrotary.org.uk or by using any of the links below


We're a small, friendly club – welcoming both men and women – with members from various parts of Southampton and the surrounding area. We are a part of Rotary International, the world's largest voluntary service organisation for community-minded people. It has no political or religious affiliations and is open to all cultures, races and creeds.

The club took its name from the area of Southampton originally known by the Romans as Clausentum which was the site of their first purpose built port on the east bank of the River Itchen in the area today called Bitterne Manor, part of what we now know as the City of Southampton. It was also the inspiration for our club logo which is a centurion’s helmet.

Who we are:

Our members are positive people who want to make a difference in the world. They come from all backgrounds and walks of life, and represent a wide range of vocations and skills. All age groups are welcomed.

We aim to: 

  • Be a force for good in and around Southampton; we seek to develop the area and our community

  • Work with others to maximise our positive impact, always upholding high ethical standards

  • Support each other, respecting differences and adapting to the modern world

  • Play our part locally, nationally and internationally

  • Enjoy each other’s company and a great social life, and have fun

We meet on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, 1.00 p.m. on the second Wednesday and 6.45 p.m. on the fourth. Zoom details announced periodically. A new venue is to be announced soon.

Would you like to be part of Rotary? Why not get involved in one of our projects or come to one of our events or meetings. We look forward to meeting you. Please e-mail secretary@clausentumrotary.org.uk before visiting so that we can ensure that one of us is waiting to welcome you.

To find more about us pop in to the Blue Keys Hotel (see above) or e-mail us at: secretary@clausentumrotary.org.uk  If you’re interested in joining Southampton Clausentum Rotary Club please e-mail membership@clausentumrotary.org.uk  

If you are a Rotarian visiting the area, you will be made very welcome at one of our meetings - check the programme page for further details and then contact our secretary as above to arrange your visit.

There are several Rotary clubs within the Southampton and surrounding area. Please contact us for further details. Each club tends to support projects within their own local area, so if you live in a different area, you may want to contact one of the other clubs for support.
