Update March 2018

From The Great Daffodil Appeal to Call my Bluff


Our March meetings were off to an interesting start with an illustrated talk by club member Charles Flanagan on the work of the Lakes Housing Trust.  Their aim is to provide rented homes for local people who cannot afford to buy or long-term rent accommodation at current market prices.  The Trust's affordable rents have resulted in several of their tenants being able to save for deposits and subsequently buy their own homes.

On Saturday 24th members and friends were out on the streets of Ambleside suitably attired in large yellow daffodil hats and tabards for the annual Marie Curie Great Daffodil Street Collection. The magnificent total of £831.88 was collected, not to mention lots of smiles and compliments too!


The month finished with a very sociable Call my Bluff evening.  Teams took it in turn to provide three definitions of an obscure word, only one of which was correct. Remaining members voted for the correct definition, the other two being "bluffs". Obviously one of the aims of Rotary ‘Is it the truth’ was not adhered to that evening!
