Getting a job - six top tips from Erik Foster, Tenterden Rotary ClubDetails
Rotarians are people of action and integrity, with a passion to make a difference wherever possible, whenever required. Rotary is a world wide organisation, with its roots in the local community.
"Rotary may be made for some towns and some towns may be made for Rotary and Tenterden falls neatly in to this latter category". Tenterden town is noted for its tree-lined street, wide grass verges and its complex of houses and shops of widely differing architectural styles. The nine villages of the Club's area each have their points of interest and, in very general terms, are noted for their historic buildings.
The club is centred on Tenterden. Most of its members come from within the boundaries of the town. The formation of this club is due to two outstanding figures of the town. Robert Cruttenden who worked with his father- in-law Charles Bourne, in the management of the garage and service station in the centre of Tenterden and Ivo Emberson, who was Town Clerk and President of the Interim Club.
The Club's Charter was presented on the night of Friday 7th November 1947 at the Town Hall, Tenterden in the presence of their ladies and other distinguished guests.
