2012 – 13
Chairman. Rtn. Dianne Wilson
Our plans for 2012-2013 are pretty simple.
Wintend to carry on the good work started by my predecessor Stuart Blackwell together with co-opted members as and when appropriate. This will include:
Encouragingthe High School students through Head Teachers to participate in the District competitions and initiatives - Youth speaks, Young Chef, etc with Eric,- encouraging youngsters to go to Summer camps, Getting the local schools involved in Rotary projects,
Nurturing our continuing relationship with Lions Youth Brass Band,
Continuing our support for the Shipton Explorer Unit in the local Scouts,
St John's C of E Primary School, Sandbach Heath may be willing to do a pre-Christmas concert on a Thursday at the St. Mary’s Church Hall in December, as they did for number of years. We will build a closer relationship with the school.
2011 – 12
Chairman. Rtn. Stuart Blackwell
We continued to support the District competitions and initiatives - Youth Speaks, Young Chef, etc., although we seem to lack the take-up at our local schools.
With our support, a young lady from Brereton, near Sandbach has been allocated a place on the Rotary Youth Camp in Finland
We keep trying to get the local schools involved in activities, with the only real success being their entries into the Swimathon.
A link with the "Railway Children" international charity (HQ in Sandbach) was established. Not only do they help children in India and other far off countries, but they also have significant work in the UK. It is hoped that this relationship will further blossom during the coming months and years.
In conjunction with other committees we continue to nurture our ongoing relationship with Lions Youth Brass Band.
We did make some progress in creating a link with the "Sandbach Children's Centre", but due to changes in the way the Local Council works this died a death as reorganisation and red tape prevented any further contact.
A link with the Shipton Explorer Unit in Sandbach Scouts (a group of senior Scouts) was established. It is hoped that this relationship can be further developed during the forthcoming year.
