Welcome to the Rotary Club of Sandwich
The Rotary Club of Sandwich is part of District 1120 and was founded on
5th January 1956. Its membership is made up of residents of Sandwich and
surrounding villages. Currently there are 36 members but we are always
pleased to welcome anyone who wishes to join us.
Sandwich is a famous medieval town and has a variety of historic buildings. The picture below depicts the Barbican, one of the two surviving gatehouse protecting the town. The Barbican stands next to the bridge over the River Stour to the north of the town.The other gate house known as Fishergate is some 130 metres away along the Quay.
The majority of our meetings are held in the Bell Hotel which is behind the Barbican.
On Bank Holiday Monday 28th August the club holds its second major event which is the Annual Duck Race on the River Stour. (See the page on What We Do with further information about the Duck Race)
We are an active club with a number of events
including the Golf Day, which in 2018 was held on Friday 18th May.
We were involved in Sandwich Salutes the 40's weekend and, further details can be found on the Events Page

Armentiàres in Northern France, Renaix in Belgium and Bocholt in Germany
