Safari Lunch19th March 2017 - A safari lunch. This is where each course of the meal is eaten at a different members’ house with a different group of people. It is an organisational nightmare but at the same time very enjoyable for those taking part. It can entail a fair bit of driving as our members are spread over a fairly large area ranging from Elham in the South to Whitstable in the North and Wingham in the East and Faversham in the West. 


13th February 2017- 40th Anniversary and Valentine's Dinner at the Cathedral Lodge in Canterbury: 

An excellent event attended by the Lord Mayor of Canterbury, our Assistant District Governor, Presidents of Canterbury and Whitstable Rotary and other honored guests. We were entertained with some interesting speeches, a cabaret performed by three attractive young ladies of Blean and a film show of the Club's major activities since formation. What a night to remember for all involved, crowned by the presentation of Paul Harris Sapphire Awards to David Pentin (Founder President) and David Watts (past President) for services to the Club and local community.

These were the social events held in the past year but of course a lot of the fund raising and community service occasions also give us plenty of social interaction between members.
