Centenary 2022

Canterbury Rotary Logo + Celebrating our centenary

We have lots of exciting things planned so come back here to find out more information as time progresses.

How it all started

In the aftermath of the First World War Rotary was a growing international force. At the suggestion of a Rotarian from the Margate Club (Canterbury’s Mother Club), Alfred Baynton of Canterbury and General Manager of the East Kent Road Car Company convened an informal lunch at the County Hotel, Canterbury, on 2 December 1921.

This was followed by the Charter Night and Inaugural Dinner on 9 February 1922.  For more details on the history of the club, click here.
