About us

  • The Club was chartered in 1980, sponsored by The Rotary Club of Brentwood and The Rotary Club of Shenfield and Hutton. It started with 26 founder members,  meeting  on Monday evenings, initially at the Coffee Pot Restaurant and soon after, at the Post House Hotel in Brentwood.

  • The formation of the club was part of a trend in Rotary in the late 1970’s to establish evening clubs to cater for the changing nature of business, and for those who worked out of the area and could not attend meetings at lunch time.

  • The name of the club, Brentwood à Becket, is a reflection of Brentwood’s early history as a stopover for pilgrims as they journeyed between Canterbury and the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. Thomas à Becket was martyred in Canterbury and Brentwood now contains the ruins of a chapel dedicated to him and founded by one of the abbots of St. Osyths. (For more information on Thomas à Becket, click on this link.  Thomas Becket )

  • The club membership stands at around 35, including some of the original founder members. This a lively, active and successful club with a growing membership. If you are interested to learn more about the club please contact us on   becketrotary@gmail.com

  • The club meets at the Marygreen Manor Hotel in Brentwood, previously known as The Moat House Hotel.

  • Brentwood à Becket Rotary Club is a service organization, in common with Rotary Clubs worldwide. It supports many local organizations and charities either by raising funds or direct assistance from the members, their families and friends.

  • Our major fund raising event is the Brentwood Charity Half Marathon and Fun Run. This is a major event in the Brentwood calendar and is now in its 37th year, raising well over £2 million for charity. It takes place in March, and full details can be found by going to the dedicated web site at www.brentwoodhalf.org
