Many Rotarians will remember Mery from the Brazilian team who visited a couple of years ago. In January Mery married Andrew Bowen to whom she was introduced to when attending church whilst being hosted by Bredon Hill.  Great news and we wish them both well.  


Michael Dilger of The One Show will open the ever expanding Festival.

During the day we will be visited by Jemma Cooper - BBC West weather girl who will be plugging the event in her forecasts in the week before.

See the event's excellent website and Facebook page to find out more.

Most members of the recent Rotary Friendship Exchange team have returned from New Zealand after an exciting and thoroughly enjoyable tour of the North Island. Some have remained to tour New Zealand’s South Island.

Hosted by Rotarians in five localities including volcanic Rotorua and Art Deco Napier, the team visited Rotary Clubs and gave presentations bringing greetings from DG Martin and all D1100 Rotarians.

The team was able to visit many places of interest during the two week tour, both on and off the tourist trail - all generously arranged by Rotarians in D9930.

Members from D9930 New Zealand will be visiting us in May next year.
For information about future Rotary Friendship Exchange visits, contact Alan Martin.

Tim Mason and other Club members have organised a very different day long event at the wonderful Wildfowl and Wetland Trust at Slimbridge.  

Something going on for all the family at a very reasonable cost.

Your Green Future in Bristol 13/14 March was a great success.
