Cranleigh Rotary is celebrating its 50th year of working in the community. The Club President during this landmark year is Richard Kenyon, a retired Chartered Surveyor, who has lived in the village for the past 7 years.

Richard was recently installed as the new President at an informal ceremony at the Club's home venue, Cranleigh Golf and Country Club.

Richard says that he is looking forward to leading the Club during such a significant year, continuing and developing the important contribution that the Rotary Club makes to Cranleigh, and introducing new initiatives such as a ‘Business Partners’ scheme that will link the Club to local businesses.

Rotary is a worldwide organisation with over 1.2 million men and women who are linked by membership of local clubs, such as Cranleigh, with the aim of helping communities in need, both at home and abroad, whilst enjoying the fellowship of other members. Rotary International's most significant recent achievement has been as lead partner in the virtual eradication of polio on a worldwide basis. 

Cranleigh Rotary has also been extensively involved throughout its 50 years in supporting local charities, schools, health care and the elderly with fundraising through street collections, sponsored walks, running events such as the Cranleigh Marathon and Santa Dash, and many others.

To celebrate this milestone in our Club's history we are planning an exhibition at the Cranleigh Arts Centre on Saturday, 9 November 2019, followed next year by a Celebration Dinner at the Cranleigh Golf and Country Club on Saturday, 30 May 2020.

New members are welcome and anyone interested in joining or finding out more should contact Patrick Leake, our Membership Secretary (01483 271559 or patrickleake@gmail.com).
