About us


Presidents Address 2020/21

Welcome to the Chestfield Rotary Club Website. This method of communication has become even more relevant in the current pandemic with face to face meetings suspended since early March, we started fortnightly meetings again in August at a new venue while our main venue is still closed for meals etc. but we have now had to put them on hold following new restrictions from 14th September 2020 which is a great shame. We are holding Zoom meetings each week now to allow as many members as possible to join in.

When we are able to resume our normal club meetings I would encourage you to come along one Thursday morning to meet our diverse group of club members and see what fun we have together.

Our club is certainly not stuffy – our aim is to have fun together whilst fundraising for the wider community in the UK and overseas.

Because most of our fundraising activities have been suspended the club has decided to continue raising money for Alzheimer’s Research UK, Hi Kent (a local hearing  charity) and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People,  which were last year’s Presidents chosen charities as we have not achieved what was expected yet.

Again please do come along and be assured that we will be following all current advice on health regulations when we do so.

This site will be updated as soon as regulations on normal weekly meeting change.

 

Kathryn Wilson

 

President 2020 (Sept -Dec)

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.

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