In August we were delighted to present a cheque to Newton Parish Council to enable them to install a defibrillator which is to be situated centrally for residents from both the traditonal housing and those who live on the new development.
On October 19th it was a joy to hear Alice Hinchliffe and Caitlin Davies telling us about their International Guiding Experience, which Rotary had helped to support financially. Their destination was an Inter Rail trip starting in Naples and taking them to Pompeii, Venice, Munich, Berlin and Amsterdam. The trip was a huge succes with the girls gaining independence, making new friends and gaining independence along the way.
Later in the evening Elizabeth Ellis talked to the meeting about her experience with World Challenge in Morocco which again had been supported by funding from Rotary. She spoke with great confidence about her trip and shared with members what she felt she had gained from travelling to such a different and exciting country, creating life-long memories for her.
