The Rotary Club of Sidcup

The Rotary Club of Sidcup, in common with the town to which it owes its name, is a thriving group of friendly people who either live or work in Sidcup, Kent.

Service Above Self

Like all Rotary Clubs the world over, the Sidcup Rotary Club is founded on the principle of 'Service Above Self'. What this means in practice is that while we enjoy fellowship with our fellow members, a pleasant meal each week at our meetings and the entertainments that our regular events and excursions provide, we never lose sight of our over-riding aim: to use our skills and resources to help local, national and international projects. Many charities have benefited from the funds that the Rotary Club of Sidcup has tirelessly raised since its foundation all those years ago in 1935.

A Message From Our President

Welcome to the website of our Rotary Club. I have the privilege, and pleasure of serving the Club for the year 2016 / 2017

Rotary is a universal organisation with in excess of 33,000 Clubs in more than 200 countries worldwide.

Our Rotary ethos is based on the fellowship of like minded people who enjoy each other's company, but at the same time by using their skills, experience and talents serve the local community, and support less fortunate people internationally.

 Our motto is “Service Above Self

In our community we support the literacy project at Orchard School, we offer career advice in  secondary schools, we support the local Job Centre with guidance to the 18 / 24 yr old unemployed, we assist Marlborough School and Carlton Day Centre with activities. We have supported the revitalising of the walled garden at Sidcup Place, and at Christmas make our traditional collection in Sidcup to benefit local charities. In addition we help other Clubs and organisations with tangible assistance.

Further details of our activities can be found by clicking the menu on the left of this page.

For details of our Club, and of Membership please contact our secretary, Mrs Brenda Hitchcock, who's contact details can be seen on the contact page.

We have this year launched a “Satellite” Club for those who support Rotary ideals but who, due to pressure of work or family commitments, are unable to become full Members of an existing Rotary Club. This is an exciting new venture which we all support.
