About Us

President Graham Bucksey, local Building Services Consultant and Project Manager joined forces with Stephen Tester, co-founder of Tester & Jones Funeral Services to bring a brand new Rotary Club to Crowborough in April 2021.

The Crowborough Rotary Club’s mission is to support, assist and benefit the Crowborough community. Crowborough is a wonderful town and we hope to be able to celebrate and support it’s community.

We have a very committed male and female membership from local businesses, support agencies and the wider community.

Crowborough Rotary is an informal organisation without structured lunch or evening dining. It meets twice a month on a Wednesday evening for business and social meetings.

We have formed a support alliance with the Wealden Dementia Forum which is a very proactive section of Wealden District Council supporting Dementia in the community. Crowborough Rotary attend their Community Café events to assist with set up and clear up and to provide help and support during the two hour sessions. We support many other Crowborough charities including The Foodbank, Baby 2 Baby & Beyond, Citizens Advice and Friends of Crowborough Hospital.

We hold an annual summer charity golf day at Crowborough Beacon Golf Club. A Ladies fashion show is also an annual event.

Our aim is to be a club supporting gender diversity is very much paying off as we currently have slightly more ladies than men as members. We want to be an all-inclusive organisation.
