Handover - 2021

The Presidency for our new Rotary year starts on 1st July. 

Our President for 2021/22 is Brian Cooke and due to the restrictions, this year the handover by past President Michele to President Brian took place in Brian's garden. 

Our very best wishes to the new President and to all future Presidents for success in the coming years.


July 1st 2021

President Brian gave his inaugral address to club members by zoom and the moment was captured in the picture below.


In his inaugral address, President Brian paid warm tribute to past President Michele for her success during the most difficult year for Rotary and the country because of the restrictions imposed as a result of the pandemic. 

Brian nominated two charitites to support during his Presidency. St. Christopher's Hospice and The Little Theatre Bromley who are seeking funds to help with reconstruction of their premises.

Back at last, to face to face meeting and our first club lunch to celebrate.

Rotarians volunteer as Covid Vaccination Centre Marshalls



"At the end of a cold busy day"

Together with other local clubs, Rotary Beckenham is helping to support the local community by volunteering as Covid Marshalls at vaccination centres in the borough. Our picture above shows Rotary West Wickham husband and wife team, Keith & Rosemary.  

Club members have marshalled members of the public attending the Beckenham Beacon for their vaccinations. Duties included guiding, reassuring, assisting and checking in and handing the information forms to those attending the centre. 

We are expecting to assist in marshalling at other local vaccination centres in due course.
