About us

Don Cockrill

As club president for the Rotary year 2022-23 it’s my great pleasure to thank you for visiting this web site and your interest in learning about Canterbury Forest of Blean Rotary club. 

We meet on most Monday evenings at Canterbury Golf Club and visitors are always welcome at our speaker evenings and social events whether you be a Rotarian from another club or would simply like to attend a meeting to meet members and learn more about our club. To book attendance please contact the Secretary

New members (from all walks of life) are always welcome if you are interested simply use the Join us link.

Our programme for the year is available on this web site and is regularly updated along with details of immediately forthcoming events. 

As well as our social activities the club has an active charity fundraising programme with a view to giving financial support to various local charities as well as national and international causes.  These can range from simple traditional high-street bucket collections to supporting major local events such as the Canterbury Half Marathon in support of Pilgrims Hospice and organising public functions such as our annual quiz night in support of Shelterbox. 

Please feel free to browse the site and if you wish to know more about any aspect of our club and its activities, do not hesitate to contact us via the contact form.

We look forward to seeing you at one or more of our events and meetings.
