Quick update-A couple of club members added to our long list of community activities by clearing up all the fallen leaves outside of the Community centre last Saturday. Although after the recent winds it'll probably need doing again but it keeps us fit!!!
Here is a photo of our good work before the winds blew!
And we will be shortly planting 5,000 crocuses in the verges around the town to highlight the End Polio now project.
Well done Gang

Club update Great day at Marlens festival in Clevedon yesterday.
Our Eggy Splat game was a great hit again (Eggy Splat copyright Clevedon Yeo Rotary 2017!)
We were also selling pre owned DVD's and CD's and engaging with the crowds.
A total of £165 was raised which will be put to good use in the local community.
Shame there were not more people there but weather wasn't great.
Sam and the team did a great job putting the event on and deserve everyone's support.
Next week we will be listening to a local speaker at our club night who, with some sponsorship from the club, raised thousands of pounds for meningitis (well done Jack Legg) by climbing Kilimanjaro!!!
We will also, in the autumn, be planting 5,000 (Yes Five thousand!) Crocus plants around Clevedon to raise awareness of Polio eradication.
And finally (for now) the Rotary logo will be appearing on the shirts of Clevedon Ladies Rugby team following our sponsorship.
The photos on this post show our the magnificent Eggy Stump itself, Our keen Eggy Stump team, our stall, one of the security team having a go and the great rugby club shirt

Just a quick update. The event we sponsored 'Nutty Noah' was a resounding success (Held at the barn on Great Western Road) The organisers have already had loads of emails from grateful Mums. It was packed out with local children.
Here is this weeks competition. In the photo below one person is Nutty Noah and one person is Rotarian Mike Lindsay. You have to guess who is who. Answers on a postcard to........(only kidding Mike!)

Club news-A bit quiet in August fundraising wise (as we don't formally meet as members are holidaying or looking after children or grandkids) but we still have a gret time socially.
Yesterday was a club BBQ. Great time had by all as the photo of the chefs show!

Later in the month we are going on the steam railway at Bitton for supper and hold our famous car treasure hunt.
That adds to our charity coffers. We also have a boules fixture to play so quiet month is a bit ambiguous!
Keep in touch with our Facebook page, website or twitter feed for details of activities when we start again (in earnest) in September

Latest club news-Virtually all the club members supported President Tony Carrington and his wife Rosie at their 'Song and Dance' show at The Redgrave theatre in Bristol on Wednesday. A great night with performances from people of all ages and a sum raised for the fantastic charity CLIC Sargent which, in previous years, has exceeded four figures. A great effort.

We are also sponsoring (together with Clevedon Lions) the North Somerset play forum activities at The Barn, Great Western Road on the 8th August (Nutty Noah show-He is NOT one of our members!) and on the Salthouse Fields on the 30th August.
We are also purchasing a LOAD (5,000) more crocus bulbs to plant around the town in the Autumn (so they'll come up next Spring) to brighten the place up AND to remind everyone that the worldwide battle against Polio is STILL being fought.

Finally, we are in discussions to sponsor some of the kit for the newly formed Clevedon Ladies rugby team.

Latest club news. We helped out (in a small way) at the Mock interviews for year 12 students at Clevedon Community school this Wednesday. Yet again the standard was brilliant and, whatever your views on Brexit, the country should look forward with confidence because we have some quality young adults taking us forward into the future. Well done to them and to the school.
In the next few weeks we will be going to the theatre (The Redgave in Bristol) to raise money for charity at an evening of music and song, holding a club BBQ, Fish and Chips on the Railway at Bitton in August and a club car treasure hunt.
We also hope to purchase more crocus bulbs for around the town to brighten up next spring and to raise awareness of Polio eradication. Phew!

Club President handover tonight on Clevedon pier.
Well done to Yvonne for the last year and looking forward to Tony Carrington keeping the good work going. Yvonne was presented with a pair of engraved champagne flutes (and something to drink out of them!) in recognition of her efforts.
Congratulations also to club secretary Steve who picked up a prestigious Paul Harris award in recognition of his services to Rotary. The town and the pier looked fabulous and the food and service was brilliant. We are so lucky here in North Somerset.
Club President Tony said "We will continue to do all we can to improve our local area by our effort and commitment. We are just ordinary people trying to do extraordinary things. Thanks to all the local residents who support us and keep watching our Facebook pages and website throughout the year for details of our activities"

Our club assembly was held on the 7th June where the incoming President, Tony Carrington, outlined his plans for the forthcoming year. I'll keep you updated on Facebook as well.
The official handover to the new president is at a Handover event on the 5th July on Clevedon pier (posh eh!)

We don't meet in August (holiday time) but other than that it's only twice a month and we have as much fun and fellowship as we can. We'd love more members so contact us if you are interested.
I hope you saw our intrepid team gardening in the North Somerset times recently?
On the subject of gardening we have supported (financially) a team of volunteer Clevedon Gardeners who go round the town brightening the place up with their efforts. Here is their latest team photo! They deserve every praise and encouragement
Keep up the good work
PS They are separate from Clevedon Pride who also do fabulous work.

What a great day yesterday. Several of our members formed a team at the Clevedon Promenade bowling Club competition. There were 10 teams and our team came a creditable 5th. We were short of players (due to some of the selected team failing fitness tests!) but put up a great effort. Here is a picture of the participants. A great day yet again proving what a positive town we've got. The winning team took away a cash prize for the charity of their choice. Thank you so much to the Bowling Club (especially for organising the weather!!!)

A quick update from the best Rotary club in Clevedon! (I know it's the only one but if I don't say it.....!!!)
This week was our AGM where our outgoing President (well outgoing in June) gave a great report on our work this year.
We look forward to hearing incoming Big Cheese Tony's plans at our club assembly in June.
Unlike major city institutions after their AGM's, we then adjourned to the Cheung Chaw on Old Church Road for a nice Chinese meal. Can't imagine Barclays bank doing that!
In the next few weeks we will be
Gardening at the Community Centre in Princes Road (keeping our own Rotary Memorial garden tidy) but also helping the centre out with a bit of weeding/pruning etc
Then we will be taking part in Clevedon Promenade Bowling clubs 'Bowling day for duffers' (my words not theirs) before,the following week, having Boules practise in Nailsea, to get our eye in, before the start of the Boules season.
We will also be contributing to Clevedon Schools' Mock Interview day later in the summer.
Below is a photo of our outgoing President Yvonne (great year boss!) and incoming President Tony tucking into their main courses.

On the day when the UK invoked article 50 we were tremendously uplifted by the clubs' Public Speaking competition involving pupils from years 7, 8 and 9 at Clevedon Community school. The standard was brilliant and the topics covered were wide ranging and thought provoking. They included Dementia, ADHD, Doping in sport, Freedom and the London transport system just to mention a few.

Image may contain: 3 people, table and indoor

All the young people delivered their presentations with energy, enthusiasm and, in some cases, a large dollop of courage in front of a packed audience. All participants received a certificate and the three age winners received an amazon voucher. Thanks must go to the Walton Park Hotel for hosting the event, to the club members for their contributions with time keeping, stewarding etc but most importantly the future looks very bright for this country if the participants last night are representative of our young people today. The school, parents and the kids should be very proud of themselves. They were BRILLIANT!!!

We are certainly were not 'Sick as a parrot' but rather 'Over the Moon Gary' with our efforts at Bristol City V Norwich last night.

It is the time of the year when we are all (hopefully) reminded that there are still people in the world suffering from the ravages of Polio. Whilst the Rotary organisation has done tremendous work to eradicate the disease it unfortunately still exists.
We have an annual reminder in place of this disease with our display of 'Purple for Polio' Crocuses on the Motorway roundabout.

Also this year Wilkins and Son have donated a jar of jam to each Rotarian to use for fundraising events, sell or...anything else!

We love to help young people with projects like this (when finances allow) as it helps in their development but also raises money for a worthwhile cause. Jack raised £3300! BRILLIANT

Last skittles match of the season last night. We gained a comprehensive win but our record of two wins and 2 defeats won't (I suspect) see us progress. They have all however been great social nights with good company and good food (well last nights was great as normal at the Ring o Bells in Nailsea)
Lets hope our Boules season goes better-Roll on the better weather!

We had a great visit to the BBC studios at Whiteladies road yesterday. A few of us had the chance to 'have a go' at broadcasting and the results were hilarious! It was an eye opening visit guided by two lovely staff. It is just the type of thing we like to do. That was followed by a lovely meal at a restaurant in Clifton.

As a result of our fundraising activities the club decided to put some of the money to good use for the benefit of the whole Clevedon community. To that end we have given a cheque for £700 to the local Clevedon First Responders. They run a car to provide an immediate response within the town to health related emergencies and this cheque will cover the insurance costs of their vehicle for a year.
Club President Yvonne Kingston said "A local project is benefiting from the excellent support we receive from the local community for our fund raising efforts"
Judith Boulden from Clevedon First Responders was delighted with the money and said "This will enable us to cover our insurance premium and continue to provide our service.This is yet another example of the great support Clevedon Yeo gives to us"

Well our sporting prowess knows no bounds! For the second skittles match running we were soundly thrashed. However a good night, a few beers and food afterwards so all good. If we were a football team we are struggling to avoid relegation! Still here is a picture of our fine team just after the debacle (still smiling)
Unfortunately some of our ace players including our female contingent were unavailable. They would have no doubt brought along some much need skill!!! (and glamour looking at this lot!)
In other news-Several of our members are attending the funeral of ex Rotarian Nick Pennycott next week. A sad Loss.
And on more cheerful subjects we are looking forward to a visit to the BBC studios in Bristol in Feb and, we hope, a good liitle earner for charity in March when, Prior to the Bristol City v Norwich game on the 7th March we are collecting (before the game) on behalf of the Children's hospital and The Children's Hospice South west at Wraxhall. Lets hope the fans dig deep for these amazing causes.
A great effort from our small but vibrant club.
