The Woodland Trust

Martin Boiling a volunteer with the Woodland Trust.
The Rotary Club of Croydon was founded in 1921 and for 96 years has been a source of enjoyment to its members and service to the local community.
We currently have over 40 members, both men and women, with a wide mix of social and vocational interests.
We meet every Tuesday for lunch at the Masonic Halls in Croydon (see bottom of screen for location map), where we are able to enjoy a meal and share lively conversations. We often have guest speakers and occasionally our meetings are devoted to discussing the business of the Club and planning our community and International fundraising activities.
In addition to our weekly meetings, we hold social and fundraising events, including theatre trips, and partake in the local Rotary community sporting activities.
View the WHAT WE DO section for more information about the activities of the Rotary Club of Croydon, or download our current Information Leaflet.
THE START OF THE NEW CLUB YEAR 2018-2019
President Loraine Davis has chosen for her charity the Croydon Neighbourhood Care Association Befriending Service, which offers support to both elderly carers and families caring for an elderly relative, and to elderly, frail people living alone, many of whom have no next of kin or support networks.
Sue McVicar from CNCA will speak to Club on Tuesday 03 July 2018.
Immediate Past President Peter Spalding will be presenting a cheque for £5000 to the Croydon Hearing Resource Centre on Tuesday 17 July 2018. This was his chosen charity for 2017-2018.
Contact our Secretary to arrange a visit to Croydon Rotary Club to meet and hear more about how Rotarians and the Rotary International organisation can "be the inspiration" in their local and international communities.
