Have you ever considered joining Rotary? Are you already committed to making a difference to our local community? A new initiative by the Rotary Club of Sidcup may appeal to you.

We have established a new club in Sidcup aimed at young adults. Intended to be an informal and flexible new club, you will have a chance to fashion the contribution that Rotary makes to the locality in the next generation.

For well over a century, Rotarians in 200 countries have endeavoured to make the world a better, safer, healthier and more friendly place while enjoying a great social life and gaining valuable social skills in the process.

In the Sidcup area over the past 82 years, we have had a long and fruitful association with the local community. Our achievements include establishing the League of Friends at Queen Mary’s Hospital, setting up the local Chamber of Commerce and instituting the popular annual Christmas Street Collection which helps support local charities while giving much pleasure to generations of children. More recently, we have collaborated with the Bexleyheath Job Centre in offering support and advice to the young unemployed as well as promoting the Young Enterprise Initiative in Secondary Schools and assisting with the development of reading skills at Primary Level.  Through our Rotary Club of Sidcup Educational Trust we provide grants to assist young people to undertake educational and character building activities, including an Olympic Legacy Project to support promising young athletes and assistance for talented young musicians. We have not neglected the local environment, providing a sensory garden at Marlborough Park School and helping to create a community garden in Sidcup Place.

The new satellite club is setting its own priorities, building on the foundations provided by the original Sidcup members but in a way more in keeping with the enthusiasm and interests of younger people
