About us

Presidents Address 2020/21

Welcome to the Rotary club of Chestfield.

I have taken over as president for the first 6 months of 2021 and will be handing over to Lesley at our handover meeting on 24th June.

Its been and still is a very taxing year with covid 19, and all we can do as a club is to keep in touch with each other as much as possible, until we can all meet for breakfast again.

We as a club have not forgotten our charities both in the UK and further afield,all who have, and still are suffering, with covid 19. 

Locally Canterbury Food bank and Catching Lives have received food and clothing from our Christmas collection, and internationally Shelter boxes and the Polio campaign are just 2 of our charities we are helping as much as possible.

Should you like to see how we operate at the moment we are holding regular Zoom meetings so you can see how we operate under these testing times. 

Please contact myself on 07548268640 for further information on our Club.

I look forward to seeing you soon. 

Paul Hook-Overy

President 2021 (Jan - June)

Please Join Us at One of Our Meetings

We meet every Thursday morning for breakfast (7.15 for 7.30am) at Chestfield Golf Club (see details on the right hand column). Please be sure to check out our latest news below as well as our extensive photo galleries.

Did You Know?

Chestfield is a village close to the north Kent coast and is close to Whitstable.

Chestfield Golf Club is reputed to have the oldest golf clubhouse in the world - not only does the Clubhouse date back to before the dawn of the 15th Century, but it is believed to be the oldest building in the world in use as a Golf Clubhouse. It was originally part of the Chestfield Manor, which was recorded in the Domesday Book.

We are linked with the Chestfield Parish Council, with whom we work on joint projects.

We have established, with the co-operation of Kent College, an Rotary Interactor Club at Kent College for their students to join and provide an avenue for service to the community at home and abroad by raising funds for various Charity projects. Formed in February 2012 they change members every year and have between 20-30 at any one time from a wide range of backgrounds putting their enthusiasm to good use. One event they are supporting is the eradication of Polio, a project Rotary has championed and funded relentlessly world wide, as well as many other ventures which they choose each year.
