About us

GOSPORT Rotary Club is a small, friendly club serving Gosport, along with areas of Lee-on-the-Solent, Stubbington and parts of Fareham. We are part of Rotary International, which is the world's largest service organisation for community-minded people.

What is Rotary?

Rotary International is a humanitarian service organisation which brings together people from all walks of life to provide community service, promote integrity, and advance goodwill, peace, as well as understanding in the world. Foremost among those projects is promoting a polio-free world.

Who we are:

Our members at Gosport Rotary Club are positive men and women who want to make a difference. We're not elitist, but we are a warm and welcoming club, extremely sociable, with a membership drawn from a wide range of backgrounds and age groups.

We aim to:

  • Be a force for good in and around Gosport, 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.

Get involved:

Would you like to be part of Rotary? Get involved in one of our projects or come to one of our events or meetings. Joining Rotary is not expensive - no more than the cost of one of those fancy coffees each week. But come and try it first  - we look forward to meeting you.

To find more about us pop in to the Old Lodge in The Avenue, Alverstoke. We meet there most Thursdays between 7pm and 9pm. Or email secretary@gosportrotary.co.uk to arrange for a chat.

If you are a Rotarian visiting the area, you will be made welcome at one of our meetings - check the programme page for further details. Click 'meeting directions' at the bottom of this page to get detailed directions on how to find our meeting place.

If you're interested in joining Gosport Rotary Club, please make contact and we will arrange for you to visit.

And if you're not sure about whether you have time to be a Rotarian, but would like to try us out, why not consider becoming an Associate Member? Find out more details here: Associate Member
