About us

The Rotary Club of Waterlooville is a dual gender club which holds a twice monthly meeting on the first and third Tuesday at 7:30 pm at Denvilles House, 33 Emsworth Rd, Havant.

The meetings are very sociable affairs where members meet to enjoy each other’s company, share a meal together and, in a light-hearted but efficient manner, carry out the business of the day.

The weekly meetings promote acquaintance and friendship and, through this fellowship, Rotarians find the inspiration to help with community projects.

Every Rotarian has the right to attend the meetings of any other Rotary Club anywhere in the world where he or she will be received with warmth and friendship. Many members exercise this right, and without fail, benefit from the experience.

Rotarians are encouraged to invite non-Rotarian guests to club meetings and social events so why not seek one out!.

All Rotary clubs are non-sectarian and non-political; our membership represents a cross-section of people from local businesses, professions and trades.

Business at meetings is varied and often includes a talk or demonstration on a subject of general interest. The presentations are extremely useful in widening member’s knowledge of what is happening around them as well as being an enjoyable way of passing part of the evening. Many of the talks are directly related to the charities being supported by Rotarians thus allowing members to be kept abreast with progress.

If you want medals or great honours we may not be the organisation you are looking for; if you have a desire to help those less fortunate than yourself and enjoy the company of like-minded individuals then we could both benefit from getting together.

We have had the pleasure of four Presidents holding office within the club this year, all of whom had held the office before.
The 2017-2018 year continues with this pattern of four Presidents sharing the role which has proved to be very successful as an administrative operation.
We started the 2017 -18 year on the 27th June with Past President Sandy Sanger once again wearing the Rotary Club chain of office before handing over to Colin Golding, who will pass the Presidency to Mike Pemberton who will finally hand over to John Handscomb.
