District Conference

The District Conference at Warwick last weekend was enjoyed by all who attended. The delegates were inspired by the speakers, and the breakouts on Saturday gave everyone the opportunity to choose a topic that interested them.  The Spires String Orchestra on Friday night and Ronnie Scott’s Rejects at the Gala Dinner on Saturday evening were both excellent and provided entertainment for all tastes.
The D1100 Rotary choir of over 50 people performed songs from James Bond films on Sunday morning.  After getting together at the breakout session the previous day they were very professional - watch out Gareth Malone!
A raffle was held at the Gala Dinner for the Vocational Training Team to Bulgaria which raised a magnificent sum  £1150.  This will add to the contributions made by clubs and together with the RI grant means that this project will soon be underway.

“We thoroughly enjoyed the conference. Indeed, we thought it the best we had attended. So hats off to the Conference team for your very hard work”
“What was an excellent conference - good company, speakers and food!  We appreciate how hard your committees worked to make the weekend so successful and would like to thank you very much”.
Put the date in your diaries now - next year’s Conference is in Weymouth 11 – 13 April 2016.
