New Member – Andrew Clague

Earlier we wrote details about two of three new members to our club. Here we write about the third who, in fact, has re-joined us! We’re pleased to have him back – though he’s kept involved with our Rotary activities in the meantime.

Andrew Clague (Dip Arch RIBA AABC) was born in Herne Bay – son of Rotarian John (and Peggy) Clague. He boarded and was educated for 10 years at St Edmund’s School in Canterbury. 

Andrew is an architect who has an expertise in conservation projects and many types of new builds in the historic environment (including care / extension of churches and almshouses); also all forms of new residential work. This includes new designs, carrying out quinquennial inspection survey reports and supervising crafts that people carry out to ensure sympathetic repairs. Andrew is also a former vice president (practice) of RIBA (The Royal Institute of British Architects).

Andrew is a full-time director in his son’s practice, James Clague Architects (in Castle Row, Canterbury), which is a medium-sized firm. Examples of his design work can be seen at and  at Schemes in which he had a hand in the past are: The Horsebridge – Whitstable; Old Tannery Re-development, Canterbury Cricket Ground and Sir Roger Manwood (4) new Almshouses – in Canterbury.

Of late, Andrew has been sitting on the Patron’s Award Committee which has involved travelling UK-wide to inspect recently completed almshouses thought worthy of a prize.

The picture gives a clue to Andrew’s recreational passion – he is a qualified Yachtmaster and has sailed the Atlantic!

Asked about returning to our club, Andrew said: “As a former Rotarian, it’s with thanks and a great deal of pleasure to have re-joined, with the objective of service. Also, I’m pleased to meet again regularly with many friends in the club and to get to know fellow members that joined in my interregnum.”

If you’re interested in finding out how you might join our club, do consider becoming a “Friend” of our club, or simply contact us to tell us of your interest. In the meantime, you can also stay up-to-date on our activities via this news section.
