The Rotary Club of Lunesdale host Children from Belarus

On Tuesday 18th June 11 children, ages between 8 - 12 years plus 2 interpreters from Belarus, spent the day as guests of the Rotary Club of Lunesdale.

Children from Belarus

In the morning President Hugh Sweenie and President Elect Dave Lewis plus some members of the Club met the children at the Lakeland Climbing Centre in Kendal as guests of Mr. Mrs Wilson. Here they enjoyed, with great enthusiasm, the numerous challenges the Centre offers including the "Leap of Death"!  Lunch was provided at Kirkby Lonsdale followed by a visit to the swing park in Barbon.

Next on the agenda was a relaxing walk along the river path at Kirkby Lonsdale on a warm and sunny day. A delicious afternoon tea was eaten with relish before finally each of the children was presented with a backpack full of useful goodies plus a teddybear. It was then time to share hugs and say goodbyes before boarding the bus and heading back to their host families in Silverdale. A good day was had by all.

Golden opportunity to win a European break

Where in the world can you find Passionately Purple Gin?

Rotary Lytham, in conjunction with Riviera Travel, is offering a golden opportunity for you to win a fantastic break in either Paris or Bruges, simply by taking a picture of a bottle of Passionately Purple Gin in either a holiday or unusual setting and posting it on Twitter and Facebook. You don’t have to travel to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, as one of our purchasers did - it can be anywhere in the UK, Europe or the rest of the world. The most imaginative photograph will be selected by RotaryGBI’s Rotary magazine Editor Dave King, to win a fabulous four day/three night break in one of two romantic European cities.

The prize is the winner's choice from two of Riviera Travel's escorted short break tours for two people – Paris or Bruges. The prize includes return travel by Eurostar from St Pancras International Station to hotel, transfers, accommodation with breakfast and a range of excursions.

The full tour details can be found at :

The holiday can be taken, subject to availability, at any time to the end of 2020.

We told you Passionately Purple Gin had magical qualities — now it can transport you to Europe where you can top up your taste buds even further.  If you have already drunk your gin or still haven’t tried it now is the time to order

One bottle of the special craft gin can still be purchased for £35 and can be delivered direct to your home for only £5.50 extra. Larger orders ie two to six can be delivered direct to a mainland UK address for £9.95 or sent to Alcester for collection by your DG or a member of your District team who visits Alcester. Please ask for details.

Orders can be placed by downloading and completing the order form and pay by BACS or cheque. Further details on the form which should be sent to Rotary Lytham, preferably by email - address and payment details as printed on the form. If you are unable to email the form please email your name, address, club and district, phone number and your payment confirmation details and the number of bottles you require.

Terms and conditions

Closing date is 30th October 2019; the Editor’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. All photographs should be original and unedited and must be posted on your personal and/or Club’s Twitter/Facebook pages with the following handles/hashtags @LythamRotary #PassionatelyPurpleGin #Rotary #EndPolio #RivieraTravelUK.
