Venue – Crown Plaza Felbridge, London Road, East Grinstead, RH19 2BH


Your Conference Team are progressing the programme and other arrangements for the District Conference in October 2024 and we can share with you the latest information.

The draft programme  has now been agreed and several speakers have already agreed to attend as well as Kiera Jade Smitheram (Chichester Rotaract) who has accepted our invitation to act as MC.  There will be an RI Representative, Rtn Larry Lunsford, RC Kansas City-Plaza, who is a Rotary Foundation Trustee and who will give us a presentation of the current work of the Foundation.  The CEO of Shelterbox, Sanj Suikanthan, will update us on their work and who also works closely with Larry Lunsford on various world wide relief projects.  DGE Tim has first hand experience of working with Shelterbox so knows how vital their work is to those affected by natural disasters.

There will be presentations on our many Youth Projects. Alan Wellman will tell us more about RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) and there will also be more details from those who have taken part in Young Chef, Young Musician and Youth Speaks.

Clubs will be invited by PDG Peter O’Keefe to nominate one of their recent club projects from which four will be selected, each being limited to ten minutes.  Two charities will also be invited,  not to tell us of a future project they may wish financial assistance on but how a recent project had a positive effect and benefitted those who had received our help.

For delegates who may wish to stay over night on either the Friday or Saturday, the Crown Plaza have offered bed and breakfast on Friday (11th) at £130.00 (Double) or £120.00 (Single).   Dinner, bed and breakfast on Saturday (12th) will be £180.00 (double) or £145.00 (single).   Those who may wish to stay should make their reservation(s) direct with the hotel

Telephone number 01342 337733

The cost to register is £39.00 which includes free tea/coffee, lunch and free parking.

Rotaract and Interact are very welcome to attend free of charge but will still need to register.

Please register now as this assists us greatly in our final planning but delegates are free to register up to and including on the day but as you, hopefully, will appreciate this does create a lot more work for the conference committee.

Free parking, buffet lunch and all refreshments included.
