Rotary Club of Tenterden




70 years of Tenterden Rotary Club

At a meeting attended by 54 members and guests the Rotary Club of Tenterden celebrated 70 years of service to the community. The club was chartered in 1947 and a meeting was held on Tuesday 7th December in Tenterden town hall at the same venue and time as that original meeting. President Chris Milne outlined some of the history of the club and said that since its inception it has raised about three quarters of a million pounds for charities in addition to organising events and sponsoring youth activities.

One founder member of the club, Robert Cruttenden, a former Mayor of Tenterden is no longer alive but his portrait in the corner of the room seemed to be smiling in approval.
