About us


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 at the Blue Keys Hotel, 82 Northlands Road, Southampton, SO15 2LH on the second and fourth Wednesday evenings of each month.

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.
