About us

Welcome to the Lowestoft South Rotary Club

We meet every Monday night at 6.30pm for a 7pm dinner at the Hatfield Hotel in Lowestoft .

As one of 3 Rotary clubs in Lowestoft, we are small in number but large in heart, commitment and fellowship.

Our club is very sociable, being based on friendship and camaraderie between members, whilst promoting good business ethics.

We engage in fund-raising events to the benefit of local, national and international charities. Members also support and participate in charitable events organised by others.

In addition, we organise a number of social events for members, their families and friends.

So, if you are looking to join Rotary and want to enjoy Monday evenings in the company of professional people who join together for friendship and to support charitable causes, please email our Secretary, who will be pleased to arrange an invite to one of our meetings.

So - what do we do?

Queens Canopy.

To support the Queens Green Canopy project, members of Rotary, Lowestoft South, planted 24 young trees at the Carlton Marshes Nature Reserve.

The trees, from the Woodland Trust, were planted along a new section of pathway and will form a natural protection for the Skylark habitat.


More information on Carlton Marshes can be found at; www.suffolkwildlifetrust.org/carlton-marshes-visitor-centre-lowestoft

The Rotary Club of Lowestoft South send their condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and her family on the death of the Duke of Edinburgh. He will be remembered for his D of E scheme and the other charity / conservation work along with duties as consort to the Queen.

Rest in Peace.

The Rotary Club of Lowestoft South are celebrating their 50th year since inauguration. To commemorate this achievement the Club have donated a defibrillator on top of their normal donations to international and local charities. This is in collaboration with the Hatfield Hotel, Lowestoft, where our meetings are normally held.

We joined forces with two other Rotary Clubs in Lowestoft and the three of us together have donated materials and scrubs to frontline NHS Staff and Key Workers equating to £1,500. Our generous donation was inspired by the daughter of East Point rotarian Ian Davies, who has also given her time up to help NHS workers in Horsham.
