About us

The Rotary Club of Worthing Steyne is one of three Rotary clubs in Worthing and was Chartered in November 1978. We meet on Monday evenings, complementing the other local clubs which, until recently, both met at lunchtime.

Companionship is the foundation of Rotary, our club puts enjoyment at the top of the list for all its activities. Our projects help both the local community and overseas causes and are often promoted in co-operation with other Rotary clubs, both in Worthing and abroad. The three Presidents of the Worthing clubs meet regularly to exchange details of club events and to plan joint activities.

A Very Special Journey

98 Years ago last month, the 1st Sussex Battalion of volunteers went to fight in defence of a town called Richebourg, in France. 

This was a diversionary battle (The Battle for the Boar's Head) prior to the Somme offensive. Sadly many lives were lost and the battle is referred to in Regimental history as "The Day Sussex Died"    But local people do not forget so annually commemorate the battle for their town

Many Rotary members attended the service. Volunteers from the Friends of Shorham Fort provided a uniformed honour guard at the head of the procession to the town's memorial.

The ceremony was covered by the local press under the headline-                                 "les Anglais commemorent la bataille de la tete de sanglier"                                                                                 (English commemorate the Battle of the Boar's Head)

As a special mark of the close relationship between Richbourg and Worthing over the years, a new street leading to a new school in the town has been named in Worthings honour.

We are proud to be a part of Rotary International's programme to rid the world of Polio, an objective which is close to being acheived. If this interests you, or you would like to know more about the Rotary movement, we would welcome you at one of our meetings. For more details, go to the "contact us" link.
