I am delighted to welcome you to our website. I have the privilege of serving as President for this year which entails chairing Club meetings and representing the Club at various functions. We are a very active and friendly Club with a long tradition of supporting local charities at home and abroad. At our meetings we usually have a guest speaker and we have been entertained in the past by a magician and had an evening of wine tasting. Other more serious speakers have informed us about Bexley Deaf Centre, Bowel Cancer, The Landmark Trust and a charity that sends old computers to Africa.
We have two contact clubs, one in Sweden and the other in Holland and we visit and host each other on a yearly basis. This Rotary year we are hosting the Delft Club. Twice a year a party of energetic members go walking, staying in hotels and sampling the local brew and this year our autumn walk was in Devizes where members from Delft joined us.
On the charity side, so far this year already we have handed over a 17 seater Minibus to Bexley Accessible Transport Scheme (BATS) to replace one of their old vehicles and donated money to The Tea Trust, Disaster Aid, Azar and paid for disadvantaged and terminally ill children to watch the circus at Ruxley Manor Garden Centre.
A big event is our legendary Christmas Collection complete with Father Christmas dispensing chocolate and festive cheer assisted by members of the Club. Look out for him this year and to follow his progress on our website click here.
The members uphold the Rotary motto of “Service above Self” and assist whenever called upon with local and community events.
Please take time to look at the many items on this web site and follow us on Facebook.
We have recently launched a “Satellite” Club for those who support Rotary ideals but due to pressure of work or family are unable to become full members.
So, if you want to have fun, meet new people and help in the community get in touch!
