Chester Raft Race

The Raft Race, organised by the Club, has been held annually for many years. Any organisation or group of individuals are invited to construct and enter a raft. Participants must wear life jackets and the raft must be "riverworthy" and satisfy the scrutineers who inspect it before it enters the water. There is a theme each year with a prize for the best dressed out raft relevant to the theme.

The race takes place from the Meadows above the suspension bridge down to the weir. There are prizes for the fastest times though that is only one aspect of the race. Having fun, providing a colourful spectacle for spectators and helping us to raise money for charity are just as, if not more, important. In 2018 the Race will take place on Sunday, 1 July.

Golf Day

golf comp 2013 003

The Club first organised a charity golf day in 2004 and it has been held annually ever since. It is held in July at local golf clubs, principally Eaton and Vicars Cross although twice at Chester Golf Club.

Players play in teams of four which can be Mens, Ladies or Mixed teams. There are prizes for the best scores in each category as well as for longest drives and "nearest the pin".

The entry fee includes a meal and companies are invited to sponsor the tees. As a result the day usually raises several thousands of pounds for local and other rotary charities.

In 2017 the event will be at Vicars Cross Golf Club on Thursday, 20 July.
