new ROtaRy clUB is laUncHeD in Kings Hill a neW rotary club in King’s hill will celebrate the presentation of its official charter on 26th February the charter for the rotary club of Kings hill will be presented to Penny spiller , president of the new club on 26th February 2011. Penny said: “our vision is to try and make rotary more- accessible, especially to people with very busy lives. We are an informal club and it’s not all work and fundraising… we have social events, and some fascinating speakers too.” on 13th december, 21 “Founder” members received their rotary badges from rotary district governor, John dunckley, at the first official meeting of the club. it was held at the spitfire pub, and followed by a celebration buffet. the club has been sponsored in its development by the neighbouring rotary club of malling, and also received support from maidstone riverside rotary club and rotary district officers. it already has several projects in the pipeline, including working with local schools to collect footwear for children in uganda, to prevent them contracting a crippling disease known as “Jiggers”; they have planted 1000 crocus bulbs at the entrance to Kings hill to help raise awareness of the need to eradicate polio world-wide (working with liberty Property trust) and collected money at asda at christmas for local charities; the club meets weekly, usually at the spitfire Pub in liberty square, Kings hill at 7pm for 7.15. anyone wishing to find out more should contact lynne on 07768 297779 or email
