Happy New Year to all .
Cheam and Sutton Rotary traditionally meet on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month over a light meal from 7:30pm. Other activities may take place on some 4th or 5th Tuesdays of the month and may include get togethers, activities or special meals. Currently the meetings are held on Zoom and start at 8pm
Our Social Media channels are the place to go for frequent updates on what we do during the year. In the run up the Xmas our Santa's Sleigh pages gives daily or more updates of what we are doing and where. In 2020 this will be very different to previous years.
Rotary's Vision - "Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves."
About Cheam and Sutton Rotary
It is amazing what we can accomplish when hearts and minds work together. Rotary Clubs consist of members from different countries, cultures, and occupations and these leaders of society are taking action to enhance health, empower youth, promote peace, and advance their community, all round the world.
Our membership is made up of active, enthusiastic men and women of all ages and backgrounds who, by combining their skills and resources, make a real contribution to the lives of others both locally and internationally.
Cheam and Sutton Rotary is a part of Rotary International, a worldwide organisation founded over 110 years ago, based on the principles of friendship, service to the community and the promotion of peace and international understanding.
As a result of Cheam and Sutton Clubs deciding to merge in 2016, Cheam and Sutton Rotary is a new club with a long history. Sutton Rotary dates back to 1923 and gave birth to Cheam Rotary in 1955. Both clubs have supported many local charities over the years of their existence and they have now merged for a wider footprint in the community.
Rotary’s May Event takes place on the Bank Holiday Monday in late May. It is Sutton and Cheam's largest community event, though recent events have had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 .
During December, every year, our Santa Float brings seasonal cheer and joy to the streets of Cheam, Sutton and Worcester Park. Our Mulled Wine and Mince Pie Evenings are popular events and fundraisers during Cheam and Worcester Park’s Christmas Evenings
We also raise funds by collecting outside local supermarkets. We are grateful to Morrisons and Sainsbury’s in Sutton and North Cheam for giving us this opportunity, all of which have been donated to local charities.
