President's Night at Fitzwilliam College


Tuesday 22 May 6.30 for 7.00 pm

A unique occasion with a superb dinner in a Cambridge college with a celebrated kitchen.

Suzi Digby will speak on "What is the future of music in state schools?"

An informal debate to which guests are welcome.



Suzi Digby OBE, Lady Eatwell is an internationally renowned Choral Conductor and Music Educator. She has trail blazed the revival of singing in UK schools and the community over two and a half decades. 

Our President, Julian Landy maintains:

"The music industry is one of the biggest export earners for the UK, and has been for years. Not just the Beatles. Think of all the performers, pop and classical, the musicals, the CDs and downloads from British performers. All over the globe they have appreciative customers. The vast majority of the talent began their musical journey at school. Mostly at state schools. Now the possibility of continuing this tradition is under threat from the trend away from teaching music in schools. Why?"

Ray Kelsall, the principal of Impington Village College and the head of music education at the County Council will both speak for the status quo. IVC is the one school locally that uses the EBACC, the English Baccalaureate, which cuts music teaching completely from the curriculum. 

Lady Eatwell (Suzi Digby) will speak against the current provisions and Sally Alexander, founder and Principal of Kimichi School Birmingham who started her own music school in order to escape the state system will speak likewise. 

The debate will then be open..........!

Tickets: £30 including a two course meal and a glass of wine.

We help with mock interviews..


A group of members recently conducted Mock Interviews with students on the Foundation Course at Cambridge Regional College. These are students whose previous educational experience has been unsatisfactory, many leaving school with few or no qualifications, and consequently with very low self-esteem and little confidence in their ability. In the Foundation Year, they focus on improving their English Language and Maths, usually with the intention of trying a GCSE at the end of the year, and also developing their personal and social skills with a view to being able to apply for a College FE course/apprenticeship and/or part-time or full time work. 

The purpose of these Mock Interviews was to help students overcome their fear of an interview and improve their presentation of themselves to people they didn’t know. Rotarians interviewed in pairs, interviewing students for 15/20 minutes and then giving the students feedback and advice. Subsequent feedback from the students suggested they had appreciated the experience and learned from it. We will be undertaking a further session of Mock Interviews on 25 April. 


John Barrett, Chair, Youth Service Committee


Antony Warren re-joins our Club and is welcomed back.

After joining the Rotary Club of Cambridge in 2005 Antony was forced to resign four years later over increasing work pressure as a Cambridge GP.

We asked him why he had come back and he said that he always enjoyed the meetings and the fellowship but before he retired he was not able to become involved in events.

He went on to say that he was very touched by his welcome back and that it was nice to meet again old members and also our new members.
