About us


History of Leigh.

Leigh has a long history as a settlement dependant on the sea, Its records are said to go back 1248, and since that time has seen changes from a major port on the River Thames to what is now a small but thriving fishing port noted for its cockles and shrimps.

History of the Rotary Club of Leigh on Sea.

We were chartered on the 15th December 1953, and since those days we would like to think we have grown with the times. Our present membership is around 35 men and women.  Should you wish to visit us whether you are already a Rotarian, or interested in the work of Rotary you will be made most welcome. If you wish to attend one of our meetings please contact plstepney@gmail.com
