About us


Thank you for logging into our Rotary Club’s website.
My name is Laurie Wakeham and I am President of the Forest of Blean Rotary Club for the year running from 1st July 2020. Our club provides friendship and fellowship through a varied social programme, whilst also helping our community wherever we can and raising funds for local charities.
Our members, both men and women, come from a large area around Canterbury. We meet on Monday evenings at Boughton Golf Club for a meal and usually a guest speaker but, of course, at the moment this cannot take place and so our meetings are being held via Zoom.
Although we had planned many fundraising events over this coming year (for example a Classic Car Show, a Barn Dance and a Quiz), they have had to be put on hold. We do, however hope to raise money in some innovative ways to support The Pilgrim’s Hospice and other local causes. Our planned annual trip to take some of the Canterbury Young Carers to the pantomime at the Marlowe Theatre may also not be possible this coming winter but will certainly resume in 2022.
Our club continues to flourish but we are always happy to accept new members who wish to make a difference to the local community. If you feel you would like to join our very friendly club then you can get in touch by sending an email to us on our contact page, click here and select Membership, or to learn more first, read ‘Are You a Perennial?’. We hope you are persuaded to come and join us.
