About us

COVID-19 and our Club

Our face-to-face meetings are currently suspended pending further notice.  We are working to update this site, and to provide additional information for current and prospective members. 

Our club embodies "Service Above Self" in many ways.

We work with YOUNG PEOPLE by organising “YOUTH SPEAKS” an annual schools public speaking competition. Our children's’ POETRY COMPETITION attracts more than 100 fantastic entries every year. In partnership with Chichester Model Engineers we entertain children from local special schools to rides on miniature steam trains and a picnic.


We care for ELDERLY folk by providing cash vouchers or food parcels at Christmas and responding to particular needs. We also arrange outings.


In conjunction with the Stroke Association we organise an annual KNOW YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE DAY where over 200 people each year have their blood pressure checked. The free test has helped to save lives and reduce the risk of a devastating stroke.


We support INTERNATIONAL disaster appeals and sponsor Shelter Boxes. We have provided an ambulance and medical equipment for clinics overseas, books and desks for schools in Africa and given funds for eye and limb camps in India. Through Rotary Foundation we have played our part in the campaign to eradicate polio.


Much of our income for charitable purposes is generated at the ROTARY TREE OF GOODWILL which, for at least the last 50 years, we have erected near the Chichester Market Cross and where we have collected donations from the generous people of Chichester.

We MEET weekly on Tuesdays, mostly at lunchtime but with evening meetings as well. We have an interesting and varied programme including social activities and outings. Last year we met our Member of Parliament at Westminster.
