Rotary is a charity organisation dedicated to providing support in the community, both at home and abroad, whilst at the same time having fun and enjoying fellowship of like-minded people. Chesterfield Scarsdale is a thriving group with 38 members and 2 honorary members.
Chesterfield Scarsdale Rotary was founded on 29th January 1981 to provide an opportunity for business and professionals to meet together within the worldwide Rotary organisation for the purpose of service to the disadvantaged local and international communities.
The name Chesterfield Scarsdale was created to differentiate the club from our founding mother club Chesterfield. 'Scarsdale Hundred' which proved to be an ancient geo-political zone stretching north to the present border of South Yorkshire and south to the Derbyshire Staffordshire borders, with Chesterfield being located in a central position,
The name Scarsdale has been used to identify other organizations and locations within our area, we are proud to think the name Scarsdale is very appropriate to us.
Normally we meet at the Technique Football Stadium in Chesterfield on Thursdays, 7pm for 7:30pm (except weeks containing a public holiday).
