We are a happy, welcoming club. . . why not visit us?
After all, as well as our meals together every 1st and 3rd Thursday and our efforts to serve our community (see below), we also get up to a great number of other things.
For instance, in November, we enjoyed a meal and a Beatles tribute band in Leigh on Sea

Installing a defibrillator for our First Responders
A defibrillator was installed outside the Shell garage on Benfleet High Road on Wednesday 22 August 2018. This was a project of past-president Ian Smith. It was bought from funds raised in our Christmas collections. The defibrillator is now available to first responders within a mile of any incident 24 hours a day

The money, we at Benfleet Rotary raised for year 2016-17 was distributed among four charities on 8 May 2018. The pictures show the handover of cheques by past-president Ian Smith
