We are a happy, welcoming club. . . why not visit us?
After all, as well as our meals together every 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
- ESSEX AIR AMBULANCE
- R.N.L.I. (lifeboats)
- PARKINSON’S UK
- BENFLEET FIRST RESPONDERS (providing a defibrillator locally)
The defibrillator will be installed outside the Shell garage on Benfleet High Road, making it available to first responders within a mile of any incident 24 hours a day

President Roger (pictured here with speaker-finder Lewis Joiner) is looking forward to the new 2018/19 Rotary Year, in which he will be continuing to welcome new members.
He would also like to see the club identify and get involved with new projects that will serve the community in which we are set and raise the profile of Benfleet Rotary Club
President Roger's senior vice president is Susan Dixon who will take back the presidency for the 2019/20 Rotary year
