Friendship and fun

New Rotary club launches in Enfield Chase

Rotary Club of Enfield
Rotarians helping out at last year’s Parade of Light event

Enfield’s newest Rotary club meets for breakfast on Thursdays in the heart of Enfield Town.

Our early meeting time means that you can start the day with merriment before going on to work or the rest of your day’s events. A friendly group of men and women, the club meetings are fun, interesting and informative. Each year we have a full programme of social and fundraising activities and hands-on projects within the community.

Rotary has a great reputation for helping people within our local area as well as supporting worthy causes both in the UK and around the world. Currently we are raising funds for Solace Women’s Refuge, Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, and the Stroke Association, by hosting charity quizzes and through our Christmas collections.

You will also find Rotary members taking part in the Stroke Association’s ‘Know Your Blood Pressure’ campaign; we are always on hand to help at Enfield’s annual Parade of Light; our members help the British Legion collecting for the Poppy Appeal every November; we were recently at Forty Hall helping with the Mayor’s Fun Run; and for the seventh year in a row we joined with other Rotarians in the annual Rotary North London Disability Games at the Aspire Centre, Stanmore.

With the addition of Enfield Chase, there are now five Rotary clubs in Enfield; Southgate meets on Mondays for lunch at 12.45pm; Enfield meets Mondays for dinner at 6.45pm; Edmonton meets Wednesdays for lunch at 12.30pm; Bush Hill Park meets Wednesdays for dinner at 7pm; and now Enfield Chase meets on Thursdays for breakfast at 7.15am. Visitors and new members are always welcome!

Our members are all enthusiastic and take an active role helping in our local community. An international organisation, Rotary’s mission statement is: “Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”

If you want to put something back into the community or change the world, please come and visit us to see what Rotary does.

Rotary Club of Enfield Chase meets every Thursday from 7.15am at The Coffee Lounge, Enfield Baptist Church, Cecil Road, Enfield EN2 7QS. For more information:
