About us

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Sandwich

The Rotary Club of Sandwich is part of District 1120 and was founded on 5th January 1956. Its membership is made up of residents of Sandwich and surrounding villages. Currently there are 35 members but we are always pleased to welcome anyone who wishes to join us.

Sandwich is a famous medieval town and has a variety of historic buildings. The picture below depicts the Barbican, one of the two surviving gatehouse protecting the town. The Barbican stands next to the bridge over the River Stour to the north of the town.The other gate house known as Fishergate is some 130 metres away along the Quay.

The majority of our meetings are help in the Bell Hotel which is behind the Barbican.

On Bank Holiday Monday at the end of August the club holds its second major event which is the Annual  Duck Race on the River Stour. (See the page on What We Do with further information about the Duck Race)

We are an active club with a number of events including the  Golf Day, which in 2017 was held on Friday 5th May.

We were involved in Sandwich Salutes the 40's weekend and, further details can be found on the Events Page 

We are "twinned" with two contact clubs, Armentiàres in Northern France and Renaix in Belgium and now Bocholt in Germany
