TOWN GO TO TOWN!

 Wootton Bassett Town are again running a very successful charity shop on their high street.

The shop is now in its fifth week and the income so far is in excess of a marvellous £3,000.
 
Another simple and easily replicable idea which also significantly raises Rotary's profile.

More details are available from Steve Walls

BRISTOL YOUNG MUSICIANS
STRIKE A CHORD

 

 An audience of more than 300 was treated to some superb performances from the 6 finalists in the recent Bristol Young Musician competition.

The 6 finalists – three on the piano, two on the violin and one on the flute – had been selected from more than 20 entries. 

Violinist Lana Trimmer from Clifton College was the winner with flautist Ruth Harrison – a past pupil of Churchill School – second.

Lana and Ruth will both appear in the District Final in March. 

 

DISTRICT ELECTIONS

Martyn Harwood will be our DG in 2014/15

Martyn, pictured above, is currently ADG for N Glos and a Past President of Stroud.

Previously, with his wife Jill's support, Martyn has been GSE Chair and was heavily involved in successfully starting Nailsworth & Gloucester Quays.

Martyn sees as his priorities to help retain members and for District to better support Clubs. He is also keen to attract younger people to Rotary membership hence his current involvement with the eClub.  

Martin Perry from Ledbury will follow Jill Johnston as Foundation Chair from July 2012.  


Congratulations to both.

INTERACT SEMINAR
IS A BIG HIT

 
12 Clubs came together at Pershore High School to find out more about Interact.

Headmaster, Clive Corbett, spoke about how the school's Club was started and why it has been so successful.

Shonaugh Evans of Portishead spoke about Rotakids which has worked very well for them. 

These young people are our future!

SAUCY COOKBOOK

Worcester Vigornia members have created a cookbook with a difference .

Every recipe has at least a dollop of Rotary tomato sauce in it! 

There are recipes for fishcakes, bolognese, wraps and other snacks and cakes.  

Yes, that's right, recipes for cakes made with tomato sauce! 

The Club will soon be promoting the recipe book to raise monies for End Polio Now. Contact them to reserve yours.

SHELTERBOX HELP
YET AGAIN!

 

Team members recently travelled to Van, Turkey to demonstrate the use of Shelterbox's winter tents.

This is ahead of hopefully distributing them to families affected by the recent terrible earthquake there.

Don't forget to contact Dave Fenwick to get involved with the ShelterBox Workshop on 19 Nov. A great way to get more involved with this fantastic project.
