Welcome to Sidcup
Rotary Club


We are a friendly and active club, supporting many charities. We have a range of social activities and at our meetings we regularly have interesting speakers. We welcome enquiries from prospective new members who would like to work with us  towards improving our community locally, nationally and internationally. 

Worldwide there are about 1.2 million Rotarian members in 34,000 clubs in 160 countries. People join Rotary to "give back" to their communities and to connect with like-minded people.

Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary's people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world.


A message from President Gerry Packman

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 Leaf 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 follow his progress on our website.

The members uphold the Rotary motto of “Service above Self” and assist whenever called upon with local and community events.

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!
