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. We have a thriving club with over 50 members.
The Rotary Club of Chesterfield Scarsdale was founded on 29 th 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.
We meet at the Proact Football Stadium in Chesterfield on Thursdays, 7 for 7:30pm (except Bank Holiday weeks).
