About us

Paul Cooke President Rotary Club CFOB
Thank you for logging into our Rotary Club’s website.
My name is Paul Cooke and I am this year’s President for the Forest of Blean Rotary Club.
We pride ourselves in offering a complete package by helping our community wherever we can, by raising funds to help local charities and a social programme designed to promote friendship and fellowship.
Our members come from a large area around Canterbury, men and women, some retired and some working. We meet on most Monday evenings at Boughton Golf Club, for a meal and usually a guest speaker plus a scattering of business meetings throughout the year.
We aim to support as many local causes as we can and this year one of those is Porchlight, which gives help to the homeless and those in need.
Our fund raising plans include the Country Pursuits Challenge day in September,  where teams of 4 compete in disciplines of shooting and driving at Greenfield’s grounds in Sturry, our New Year’s quiz for teams of 8 in Tyler Hill and our ever popular Barn Dance in May.
We are constantly on the look out for new members, people who want to join us in our efforts to make a difference and to be part of our team. 
We need you and just as importantly we believe you need us. Why not get in touch by emailing to membership@rotarycfob.org or to learn more first, read 'Are You a Perennial'. Come and have a look, judge for yourself and open up a whole new world.  I promise you will not be sorry.
We are always ready for your call and look forward to hearing from you.
Paul Cooke
