About us


Presidents Address 2021/22

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Chestfield.

I have taken over as President of our Club for the coming year – July 2021-2022.

We have all been living in extraordinary times. Much of the good work that Rotary is well known for has not been achieved during the pandemic.

However, as lock down eases we hope to be able to get back to what we do best – helping our local communities, both at home and abroad to achieve their goals.

The two charities I will be supporting this year are FOODSHARE, a local charity that supports people in the community in need of friendship and a warm meal and Special Needs Activities and Advisory Support (SNAAP) who provide a range of services to children and young people with disabilities and their carers.

We will also continue to support local foodbanks and charities helping the homeless as well as giving aid to overseas efforts e.g Shelterbox, Polio eradication.

One of the most important aspects of Rotary is fellowship and fun! As a group we enjoy social events (which includes our families and friends) on a regular basis as well as our regular meeting which take place at Chestfield Golf Club. We are known as a breakfast club and most of our meetings are held on a Thursday at 7.45am. We have evening meetings every other month when we invite an interesting array of speakers or hold a social event.

If you have been volunteering during the pandemic and feel that you would like to continue doing something in your community then please consider joining us.

We welcome guests to our meetings and so if you’d like to come along and see more of what we do we would be delighted to welcome you.

If you would like any further information please contact me on 07552051002.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Lesley Robertson

President 2021/22.

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.

For more information on Interactors at Kent College go to www.kentcollege.com or email kcinteractors@kentcollege.co.uk
