A Visit to Dracula

No, not by our esteemed President, Ben Clarke, but by Chelmsford Rotary Club’s excellent speaker  on the day President Ben and other Club Members visited our Mother Club in celebration of the 60th. anniversary of the founding of the Rotary Club of Billericay.

Warm welcome and great fellowship during the sandwich meal, a departure for Chelmsford who had just ended their relationship with the venue caterers. They had been paying £17.40 for two courses with inadequate service and poor quality.  So, a sandwich meal before moving to Ivy Hill next week. (Editor:  Makes our £12 for two courses seem very good value).

Well Founded!

In a short well-received speech president Ben recalled the founding of our Club by Chelmsford and reminisced, as a Founder Member, about the early days.

Their speaker, Felicity Clarke intrigued us all about her trek to Romania (part sponsored by Chelmsford Rotary Club) which raised £2939.09 for Farleigh Hospice!  She spoke about their adventures trekking across central Romania, close to Transylvania, and including Bran Castle, famous for its links to the Dracula story. 

She concluded: “An exhausting trip, great fellowship and beautiful scenery, and worth every effort to raise money for such a good cause”.
