Spring 2017

The first few months of 2017 have seen us present a cheque to Midlothian Young Carers. As a result of our Santa sleigh collections, we were able to give them £1000. We also made a donation to Storehouse, an organisation which helps vulnerable children in Midlothian with food and other essential items.

Spring has brought the flowering of the crocuses which we have planted over the last few years.The purple crocus is a symbol of Rotary's work in the End Polio campaign worldwide. We have planted banks of crocuses at Roslin Glen, King's Park Dalkeith and this year for the first time we planted 10,000 bulbs at Shawfair Railway Station. They make a great show of colour as you can see from the photo.

We held another successful ceilidh in January at Rosewell, and the monies raised will be going to an International project.

In March members helped by marshalling at the Lasswade AC 10 mile road race and had great fun encouraging the inspiring runners.

We also had a visit to Dalkeith museum. Although it is very small, it is packed full of interesting things and well worth going to see.
