Following a Prosecco reception, there will be a 4 course lunch on board (1.5hr journey) for Rotarians, family and friends, together with Tenovus supporters only (100 seat). The event will run from 12-4pm. The inclusive discounted price will be £30

We have booked a special steam train on the Gwili railway, just outside Carmarthen, for Saturday 30 June, as part of our centenary  celebrations. This has been agreed with DG Maggie, who will be on board, as a finale to the year and as such would be a district wide event.

The inclusive price will be £30 (a reduction of approx 20% on their normal price). The Gwili railway management will give this maximum publicity and decorate the train, station etc with Rotary and Tenovus material

It would be useful to think of a catchy name for the train eg 'Tenovus train', 'Centenary celebration choo-choo' - ideas to me please.

I will coordinate the event and ticket bookings - please circulate and let me have names and expected numbers ASAP as this will sell out very quickly. Please make a special effort to contact ex Rotarians and Paul Harris Fellows who have played their part in our history and might like to join us for this celebratory event.

Money raised on the day is for our major appeal this year the Tenovus Closer to Home Appeal.  And there are two free tickets available for anyone who can come up with a name for this prestigious event.   Contact Kevin Sivyer who will also be coordinating the event and booking tickets - email
