Welcome to Bishops Waltham Rotary Web Site, you will see as we trundle out of the summer into the autum, a new page, NEWS, there you will find pictures and articals from some of our latest ventures


The Rotary Club of Bishops Waltham(BW) was first chartered in 1989. The club currently has 32 members drawn from various walks of life, and from  BW, Waltham Chase, Swanmore, Shirrell Heath, Upham, Durley, Fair Oak, and surrounding areas. The Club welcomes both men and women as members


BW Rotary is part of the world-wide organisation of Rotary International with some 33,000 clubs in 200 countries around the world and a total membership in excess of 1.2 million.


We hold our weekly meetings on Thursday evenings at The East Horton Golf Club, Mortimerís Lane, Fair Oak, East Leigh, Hampshire, SO50 7EA. There is no compulsion to attend all meetings.

Meetings are arranged as follows:

∑   First, second and third Thursdays in the month are short informal meetings starting at 7.30   P.M. where the Clubís business matters are discussed along with planning for events.

∑   The fourth Thursday in the month involves a dinner starting at 7.30 P.M, where we usually  have an external speaker on subjects of general interest, or other local or national charities.

∑    When there is a fifth Thursday in the month, this is devoted to a social meeting with for members and their partners. 

     The business of the Club is managed and regulated by the Club Council along with various committees. During the past Rotary year the Club has donated around £20,000 to local, national and international charitable causes.

We are twinned with the Rotary Club of Nantes Jules Verne in France, and have visits with their Club every two years.

Our major fund-raising events are:

The annual BW Carnival which, includes a procession through the streets and arena events: a full day of fun activities for the local community.

The annual Fun Run, is another service to the community, as well as raising funds. Itís an attractive road race for extreme athletes as well as family runners. At the present time we are not intending to repeat this annual event.

At Christmas, whatever the weather, we take Roger the engine around the local streets broadcasting carols. Locals always say that Christmas hasnít arrived until the BW Rotary carols are heard.

Yeomanís Yearbook is an annual Classic Vehicle event directory on line, covering the Southern Counties of England and South Wales below the line drawn from the Wash to Aberystwyth, and contains month-by-month listings of classic and historic vehicle events. It is maintained by Bishops Waltham Rotary Club and any profits go to Rotary Charities.
