About us

Who are we? In 1982 the Rotary Club of Orpington created a new club for evening meetings and named it Rotary Club of Crofton. It was to meet the needs of people who could not make lunch meetings. Later we changed our name to Orpington Crofton to ensure that we had a known geographical position.


Our members support our local area with fellowship and friendship and trying to keep to the Rotary motto of "Service above self". Some of our members were founders of the Club and we have grown over the years into a positive group of men and women from diverse backgrounds and parts of the community.


We meet weekly on Wednesday at different venues and Zoom carrying out the Clubs business and frequently we have speakers. With the help of our spouses we hold numerous social events during the year.
We contribute to the local and national community, as well as charitable fund raising for local, national and international causes. We have close links with schools in the area and also help to support their charities.
I invite Rotary and non Rotary guests to visit us at our Club meeting where you will receive a warm welcome without any commitment. Just telephone our Club Secretary to make arrangements...

Our Social Media

RCOC at Bromley FC To mark the inauguration of Rotary sponsorship of Ravens Chat at Bromley FC, RC Orpington Crofton President, Howard Wilson and Rotarian Frances Mcgarry, were invited to the Hayes Lane Stadium into the Directors Box to watch the home game against Maidenhead FC on Saturday 4 February. Bromley FC have not beaten Maidenhead FC in their last five meetings and this was extended to six at this one. The first half was uneventful, as far as goals were concerned, but livened up after half time with Maidenhead taking the lead. It wasn’t long however before the home team equalised with the goal from the man of the match, Louis Dennis. The President, the Assistant Governor, Christine Atkinson and representatives from some of the other Rotary Clubs in Bromley sponsoring Ravens Chat – Orpington, Chislehurst and Bromley - enjoyed the afternoon in good company, including members of Ravens Chat. Ravens Chat is a weekly meeting of likeminded people (but especially football enthusiasts) to socialise, combat loneliness and strengthen mental wellbeing at the Hayes Lane Stadium.
