On Yer Bike for Prostate Cancer
What are you or your club doing to support this on June 21,2015?
This is an opportunity to raise your club and the Rotary profile by getting on a bike and just doing it for prostate cancer. It is reckoned that this type of cancer will be the biggest killer of men in the next few years unless money is raised to aid research into early detection and cure. Any form of cancer devastates a whole family so anything you can do along with your colleagues to support this day will be very welcome.

Speaking & Writing, it all Comes Together

On Saturday 7th February, the District Final of Youth Speaks was held at Maisemore.  Six Intermediate teams and four Seniors battled it out on stage.  All gave excellent speeches and our Toastmaster judges had a challenge to decide on the winners.  However, in the end the winners of the Intermediate section were Redland Green School from Bristol, while the Senior section was won by Haberdashers Monmouth School for Girls.  At lunchtime, winners and runners-up from the District Young Photographer and Young Writer competition were awarded their prizes and framed certificates, by our District Governor, Martyn.  Winners of the YW competition came from the eClub, Royal Wootton Bassett & District and Severn Vale Rotary Clubs.  Winners from the YP competition came from Nailsworth, Severn Vale and Cotswold Tyndale.  The winners of the Youth Speaks competition will go on to the Regional competition, while the winners of YP and YW will go directly to the respective National competitions. All in all this was an excellent day, well attended by young competitors and their families.  Very positive feedback was received from parents and teachers who expressed thanks for our Youth programme.
