Prior to lockdown the club held the annual Poetry Competition at the Civic Hall, DIDCOT
The club has now received the following message from the winner Oliver W.
I am Oliver writing to say thank you for orgaising the Rotary Poetry Competition. It has been been one of the highlights of my very strange year 5. It was a great experiience and it has compensated for missing out on lots of other things I would've done.
I would love to tell you what I have spent the prize voucher on, as we very luckily had a family trip out the weekend before lockdown! I have spent the money on a watercolour painting set, a set of multimedia brushes and pad, and an acrylic paint selection with 30 colours! Thank you very much for this experieinec and for the voucher, as I am going to have fun with my painting set.
