at The Chestfield Golf Club, you are more than welcome to visit one of our meetings where you

will be met by one of our members and introduced to others. It is a very informal meeting but as it

is a golf club smart casual is the dress code.

Chestfield Rotary has existed since 2004 and has grown into the exciting club that we have today.

As well as fundraising for many charities, local and worldwide, we hold social events for members

family and friends.

As this years President 2018/19 my chosen charities for the year are Pilgrims Hospice and Open

Your Hearts to Bhutan which is a charity run by local Buddhist nun Emma Slade, helping children

with special needs in Bhutan build meaningful lives, please go to her website for more

Did You Know?

Chestfield is a village close to the north Kent coast and is close to Whitstable.

Chestfield Golf Club is reputed to have the oldest golf clubhouse in the world - not only does the Clubhouse date back to before the dawn of the 15th Century, but it is believed to be the oldest building in the world in use as a Golf Clubhouse. It was originally part of the Chestfield Manor, which was recorded in the Domesday Book.

Rotary Club Chestfield is twinned with the Rotary Club Apeldoorn 't Loo in The Netherlands ; we enjoy mutual fellowship and visits as well as work together on international charity projects.

We are linked with the Chestfield Parish Council, with whom we work on joint projects.

We have established, with the co-operation of Kent College, an Rotary Interactor Club at Kent College for their students to join and provide an avenue for service to the community at home and abroad by raising funds for various Charity projects. Formed in February 2012 they change members every year and have between 20-30 at any one time from a wide range of backgrounds putting their enthusiasm to good use. One event they are supporting is the eradication of Polio, a project Rotary has championed and funded relentlessly world wide, as well as many other ventures which they choose each year.

For more information on Interactors at Kent College go to www.kentcollege.com or email kcinteractors@kentcollege.co.uk
