About us

Hello surfer, did you accidentally come across our web site or were you looking for us? In any event, welcome, I hope you enjoy what you read about us.

Our Club, the Rotary Club of Chestfield has only been in existence since 2004. This makes us special in the Rotary world as we are proud to be a duel gender club, of a wide age span & as one of the newer clubs, our regular weekly meetings are at breakfast time, not lunch or evening time. This does not therefor impact on you day.

As you can see we meet meet every Thursday morning at the wonderful Chestfield Golf Club, the oldest Golf Club House in the World, for breakfast. So our venue can be a delightful start to a busy day, quite apart from the excellent choice of breakfast on offer.

Please explore our website and you will discover what our club gets up to. We are very active whether in our social scene, charity fund raising or undertaking/supporting small projects/groups in our community.

If you would like to find out more about us, then feel free to join us one Thursday morning for breakfast where you will be given a very warm welcome. 

Please contact our secretary to let us know you are coming along, oh & by the way, you don’t have dress up either, just smart casual.

You can also follow us on facebook at: www.facebook.com/ChestfieldRotaryClub/

Yours in Rotary

Robert Sissons

President 2017/18


Please Join Us at One of Our Meetings

We meet every Thursday morning for breakfast (7.15 for 7.30am) at Chestfield Golf Club (see details on the right hand column). Please be sure to check out our latest news below as well as our extensive photo galleries.

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
