Welcome

Our 2019 Charity Beer Festival will be the 4th year of this Annual Event

2018 saw 1100 people enjoying 2 days of our 3rd Charity Beer Festival and raised over £10,000

in 2018 we had 15 different Draught Ciders

and over 40 Cask Conditioned Ales and 2 Lagers

and not forgetting Prosecco (and soft drinks for non-drinkers)

Live music is well established at our BeerFests and "Arry & the Atstands" are regular performers

Beer and Carbs always go down well at a Beer Festival

The St Christopher's Hospice Fun Walk - next in May 2019 - was originally started by this Club

Twice a year we run an Antiques, Vintage and Collectables Fair at Hayes Free Church

Each year at Christmas we make a collection for local Charity at Tesco, Elmers End

3 times a year we provide Helmet and Leather Storage facilities at "British Super Bike" events

in 2018 we presented a new Storage Shed to the "Forest Fun Club", Bromley

Every year our 'Purple Patch' celebrating "End Polio Now" flowers in South Hill Woods

Next February, look out for our 'Purple Patch' and remember the Rotary campaign to "End Polio Now"

CORONA VIRUS UPDATE - August 2020

Rotary in Langley Park (RCLP) has recognised the advice given by the UK Government and decided forthwith to cancel all Monday NIght dining meetings until further notice.

Langley Park Rotary has a dynamic Project Group (LPPG) who are currently active in planning a number of events so that we will continue to provide volunteers who are involved in local community 

services and fundraising activities for local Charities.  Further details can be found on this page.

 


Volunteering brings Joy

 This article was published in the recent edition of the London Borough of Bromley Magazine.

Over the last few months, a light has been shone on the value of volunteering, which has inspired a new legion of volunteers motivated to support the vulnerable, elderly and socially isolated in our communities. As we move into the recovery phase of the pandemic, building upon this strong community spirit will be vital.

Shining a light on Rotary Clubs in the borough

One local organisation that has high hopes for a lasting legacy of volunteering after the Covid-19 crisis is Rotary. 

Nolene Harris, Former Rotary Club President, said: “There are eight Rotary Clubs across the Borough supporting both local and International initiatives covering Bromley, Beckenham, Chislehurst, Langley Park, Orpington, Orpington Crofton, Ravensbourne and West Wickham.

 "In response to the pandemic, these clubs donated thousands of pounds to Bromley Foodbank and Friends of Princess Royal Hospital. They also helped Bromley and Croydon Women's Aid and St Christopher's Hospice with much needed funds.

 "Additionally, Rotary has been working hard to support the interests and concerns of the next generation of volunteers, and have supported the efforts to address loneliness and social isolation, homelessness and modern day slavery. 

“We have so much fun through our projects and meeting such wonderful people. Volunteering brings so much pleasure and joy to our lives. If you are interested in helping the local community, please do consider volunteering.”

Our Club - (Langley Park Rotary)

We are a Club of around 45 men and women and have an active programme of meetings, charitable events and social outings. As Rotarians, our motto is "Service above Self", and our Club has been doing this since our Charter was granted in September 1975.

Rotary is also about fellowship. Our regular weekly dinner meetings provide an opportunity for members to enjoy each other’s company and to develop social relationships. Speakers are regularly invited to introduce a topic of interest for the members and provide the opportunity for lively discussions. 

Many of our Charitable events are run as social events, such Race Nights, Wine Tastings, the Langley Park BeerFest, and Formal Dinners.  We also help with an Old People's Christmas day lunch party in Bromley; run regular Antiques Fairs in Hayes to support Bromley Deaf+Plus; make a Christmas Charity collection; provide (along with other Rotary Clubs) Marshalls for the St Christopher's Hospice Charity Walk (which as a Club we originally started); as well as other events to support our local Community.

So, why not come along and find out more?

OUR MEETINGS

Like most traditional Rotary Clubs, we meet once a week.  At our weekly Monday meetings we first meet for pre-meeting fellowship around 6.30pm, followed at 7pm by a three course meal and coffee/tea, which costs £18 each, and for those not eating meetings cost £2.50.  Following the meal part of the meeting we often have a Speaker and deal with any urgent Rotary business. Meetings normally finish around 9pm.

If you would like to join us for a meal please contact our Dining Steward by using the "Contact Us" button below and select "Dining Steward" as your Mail Category, so that it is directed to the correct person.

Rotarians are men and women who take an active role in their communities while greatly enriching their personal and professional lives.  Each club contains a diverse group of people from the Community that the club serves. As a member of a Rotary club, you have the opportunity to give something back, to give hope to those less fortunate and to make lives worthwhile and fulfilled.
