Welcome to Havant Rotary Club from President Mike Sellis

Information on this web site will assist you in appreciating the Worldwide extent of Rotary and the Havant Club in particular.

Havant Rotary Club is based in Hampshire, England and covers the towns of Havant, Emsworth, Rowlands Castle and Hayling Island. We meet every Monday evening at The Bear Hotel in Havant. Full details of our meetings and a Club diary can be found by following the above links.

Rotary is a worldwide network of men and women who translate their passions into relevant social causes, to change lives in communities. Made up of over 1.2 million Rotary members - known as Rotarians - in 34,000 Rotary clubs in 200 countries and geographical areas around the world, Rotary International forms a global network of business, professional and community leaders who volunteer their time and talents to serve communities locally and around the world - and form strong, lasting friendships in the process. Rotary has no religious or political affiliations which often allows us to work in areas that other organisations are not allowed.

Locally we strive in our community to help those people that are in need, utilising not just money that we raise from our fundraising but our combined skills and time, at all stages we aim in a small way to make a difference.

We are always looking to recruit people that share our philosophy of service above self. If you are interested in joining or just want more information telephone our Membership Chairman Trevor Nightingale on 01243 574244 or email him at tnightingale@btinternet.com

The competitive fun night where the audience have to guess between three meaning to obscure words proved to be great fun and showed us all how little we actually know.
