History of Camden Town

History of Camden Town Members from Rotary Clubs across London gathered at Camden Town Underground Station for a walk through the history of Camden Town on 05 August 2018. Under the leadership of Peter, our guide for the afternoon, we learned about the history of the area, starting with the overflow burial ground for St Martin in the Fields Church (located by Trafalgar Square), and about the Greek influence and the history of the All Saints Greek Orthodox Church in the area. We learned about the distinguished residents of Camden Town including Charles Dickens who had lived there for a while (as well as many other places), and we were given a brief history of the life of the poet and writer Dylan Thomas, and the life of the painter Walter Sickert - both former residents. Coming closer to today, we visited the house where Alan Bennett had lived, and which had featured in the film "Lady in the Van". Amy Winehouse had been a resident, and the band Madness had also started there. And with thoughts of madness, we made a quick tour of the Camden Lock Market and strolled along the Regents Canal before ending up at the tube station again. A really interesting place to visit, despite the crowds, and our thanks go to Kamal for organising the afternoon.... | Read more about History of Camden Town | Added 1 month ago

Stratford Gets Its Charter

Stratford Gets Its Charter Joining several other "Stratford" Rotary Clubs, the Rotary Club of Stratford in London, UK received its charter at a BBQ Party on 16 July 2018 from the President of Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland, Debbie Hodge. The BBQ Party was held on a balcony of the Holiday Inn in Stratford East London, and nearly all of the 27 Charter Members received their special 'Charter Member' Rotary Pins and a certificate from the District Extension Officer and the Membership Chairman. The Club is strongly representative of its community, one of the fastest expanding business areas in London. The event was also honoured by the presence of the Greater London Authority representative Unmesh Desai. Stratford is a popular town name around the world, and there are Rotary Clubs of Stratford in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Connecticut, Ontario, New Zealand as well as the two in the UK. We all wish the new Club well, and look forward to their involvement in Rotary in London.... | Read more about Stratford Gets Its Charter | Added 2 months ago

What is Rotary?

Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

There are 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, the main objective of Rotary is service in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
