Final of District Quiz

Congratulations to Newport Rotary who beat the Cowbridge club to win the final of the District 1150 Inter-club Quiz. The match played in the Whitchurch Golf Club was an opportunity for fellowship between the clubs and some serious quizzing!

Well done both teams and quizmaster Gareth Rees.

Cowbridge Food & Drink Charity Raffle

A mighty £1260.00 donation is making its way to the Vale and Bridgend Food Banks following the success of the annual Cowbridge Rotary Raffle at the 2023 Cowbridge Food and Drink Festival.

Throughout the two-day Festival, Cowbridge Rotary volunteers encouraged visitors to dig deep and donate for this worthy cause, and a special ‘thank you’ goes to everyone who did just that, helping to raise much-needed funds to help those in need.

 Celebrity Chef Christos Georgakis, extended a helping hand, agreeing to draw the raffle’s winning tickets, as crowds gathered hoping to win one of the three giant food, drink and gift hampers, so generously donated by the exhibitors at the Festival. And there was special interest in the chance to win the amazing first prize of a Kenwood Mixer, kindly donated by a Cowbridge Rotary supporter.

 President of Cowbridge Rotary, Huw Davies, said “Cowbridge Rotary has been overwhelmed with the generosity of the exhibitors, in the volume and quality of the gifts and produce donated to the hampers, as well as the Festival visitors who continued buying raffle tickets right up until the last moments before the big draw. 

 "It was an amazing all-round effort," said Huw. "We are so immensely grateful to all of them, and I’d like to thank, too, our Rotary Club members who all made such a tremendous effort into encouraging ticket sales.

Rotary Service

Rotary is a Service organisation and Cowbridge Rotary has been active recently with the three service projects below; general help at Y Bont Faen Primary School, a litter pick on the Ogmore river and planting at Longmeadow Court.

Y Bont Faen School

There are always little jobs to do around a school and several Rotarians (and a Rotary wife) pitched in to assist the fathers of the Parent Teacher Association at Y Bont Faen Primary School with jobs such as painting, fixing bird boxes, cleaning the bike shed and making some planters.

Litter Pick

Litter picklers

One of the areas of focus of Rotary International is the environment. In support of this, Cowbridge Rotary held a litter pick by the Ogmore river in order to clean up a part of the foreshore. President Huw is sitting amonst the collected rubbish but he did not collect them all himself!
