About us

Who are we? In 1982 the Rotary Club of Orpington created a new club for evening meetings and named it Rotary Club of Crofton. It was to meet the needs of people who could not make lunch meetings. Later we changed our name to Orpington Crofton to ensure that we had a known geographical position.


With over thirty members we support our local area with fellowship and friendship and trying to keep to the Rotary motto of "Service above self". Some of our members were founders of the Club and we have grown over the years into a positive group of men and women from diverse backgrounds and parts of the community.


We meet weekly on Monday evening at the High Elms Golf Club near Farnborough Village where we have dinner, carry out the Clubs business and frequently we have speakers. With the help of our spouses we hold numerous social events during the year.
We contribute to the local and national community, as well as charitable fund raising for local, national and international causes. We have close links with schools in the area and also help to support Darrick Wood School in Nepal.
I invite Rotary and non Rotary guests to visit us at our Club meeting where you will receive a warm welcome without any commitment. Just telephone our Club Secretary to make arrangements...
