Our latest beach clean

It was the turn of Central beach to be cleaned in August by a group of Prestatyn Rotarians and other volunteers. 7 bags of rubbish were removed from the beach making it a little cleaner for all to enjoy.

Thanks to all those who took part in the August beach clean, and to Red Boat cafe for their support.

We have a town or beach clean on the 3rd Thursday of every month. Litter pickers, gloves, and hoops are provided, so why not come along and join us. 

September beach clean cancelled during period of national mourning.

Prestatyn Rotary Club brings water to West African school

Our speaker at tonight’s Prestatyn Rotary meeting was Past President Jean Smith. Members enjoyed a slide show of the opening ceremony of the borehole at Brikama Lower Basic School in The Gambia. The entire school with their parents turned out, the pupils looking very smart in their pale blue uniforms.  This was a project funded by Prestatyn Rotary Club during Jean’s year in the President’s Chair. Jean thanked all involved in raising the funds, with special mention to Torello Lounge who donated the proceeds from 2 quiz nights and to Rotarians Alan Booth, Amie Dop and Pete Dop. The project was also funded from a donation from our Christmas Float collection 2022 and a sponsored walk along the Prestatyn to Dyserth walkway.

The borehole pump is electrically powered, feeding a large header tank which ensures a regular supply to eight taps throughout the school even during power cuts. Prior to the borehole the school, with 3200 pupils, had only one water tap.

Rotary Club award for high achievers

Two Prestatyn High School students were each presented with the Prestatyn Rotary Charles Hilton Jones Achievement Award at a club dinner this week.The award is named in memory of a past Rotary President and presented each year in recognition of the recipients' academic achievement, as well as their contribution to school and community life. Rotarian Brian Huw Jones said "It was a unanimous decision by our committee, that of the eight students shortlisted by the school there were two clear winners, both having achieved ten A* (A star) GCSE results". Charlotte Parr hopes to study maths and physics and has already completed courses in maths and cryptography at Cambridge University and a physics course at Oxford. Lois Hughes would like to study engineering, at a University to be decided. She is a lifeguard in her spare time. Prestatyn Rotary President Jean Smith was delighted to present Charlotte and Lois with their certificates and tokens. Summarising, High School head teacher Neil Foley thanked Rotarians for their continued support, and said "There are so many excellent pupils at our school but tonight's winners have achieved their results whilst studying under exceptional circumstances as well as being polite, mature, pro-active and resilient".
