Our club embodies 'Service Above Self' in many ways

We are a friendly club with a proud record of service to Chichester for over 100 years. We normally meet on a Tuesday, with lunchtime and evening meetings to allow as many members and visitors as possible to join us. We have an interesting and varied programme including social activities and outings, as well as offering many opportunies for community service.

Below is a summary of some of our projects which we hope to continue in the coming months

Our Projects

  • YOUTH SPEAKS is 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
  • We care for ELDERLY folk by providing Christmas food parcels
    • SHELTER BOXES - we support international disaster appeals
    • We've provided an ambulance and MEDICAL EQUIPMENT for clinics overseas, books and desks for schools in Africa and funds for eye and limb camps in India

    • ROTARY TREE OF GOODWILL  - our Christmas tree at the Chichester Market Cross attracts donations from the generous people of Chichester
