For most weeks in the year, we meet on Mondays as a club, with our members enjoying a meal at The Chichester, Old London Road, Wickford, Essex.  However, all our meetings at present are online via Zoom.

Normally, dinner is followed by a particular kind of meeting such as 'committee', 'business' and 'speaker'  - the latter gives us an opportunity to invite a well-known personality or charity organisation to keep us informed about their work or life.

We have a members' raffle at the end of the evening and our Sergeant-At-Arms is an appointed member of the club who manages to extract small amounts of money from us in friendly fun from personal observations of us which goes to our charity box.

The evening is run by our President who sits at the top table with his Secretary and we welcome our visiting guests too. Toasts are made to the Queen and our Rotary organisation.

We have a Treasurer to manage our accounts and appointed officers to involve us in the more gentle sports, a press officer to publicise our events, an IT specialist to handle our information, a webmaster to run this website and particular members who take on responsibility for an event eg. our Charity Golf Day and our social trips and dinner dances. Our Foundation officer looks to promote the work of Rotary eg. Purple Pinkie support to End Polio Campaign.

Above all, the experience of our members is put to good use and unites us in working for our Community and Vocational Service and International projects such as the Nepal Earthquake Appeal, keeping up our club membership and helping us follow the Objects of Rotary as a thriving Rotary Club that is part of Rotary GB&I, supporting "Rotary and peace the world over".
