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
