The Rotary Club of Saundersfoot
The Rotary Club of Saundersfoot was formed in 1976 and its members meet on a weekly basis at the Wiseman's Bridge Inn on a Monday evening (except during August when alternative venues are used or visits made).
Although the principles and objectives of Rotary are the same the world over, each Rotary Club is different and each club tackles a wide range of events, fund-raising, local and international projects. The members of Saundersfoot can often be seen in the community undertaking events or projects and as far as is reasonably possible having fun at the same time.
The Club is dual gender and we are always looking for more men and women of all ages and backgrounds to join the network of Rotary Clubs throughout Great Britain and Ireland, to use their time, talents, professional skills and energy to improving the lives of people in their local communities and others around the world. If you feel that you would like to know more about our Club please contact our Secretary Rtn Charles Hopkinson by email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We also run a 'Getting to know your local Rotary Club' evening from time-to-time at one of our dinner meetings where we give a small presentation about the club and its activities. Again, please contact our Club Secretary Rtn Charles Hopkinson for more information.
Membership of Rotary Clubs is traditionally by invitation only, at the discretion of the members. It is therefore preferable for you to visit the Club on a few occasions. You will get to know the members and hopefully feel that you would be happy being part of the Club, and equally the members get a chance to get to know you.
The principle benefit of being a member of the Rotary Club of Saundersfoot is to have fun whilst providing a necessary service to those in need. In the process, you can enjoy the benefits of business networking, personal development, meeting new friends, hearing inspiring speakers, and experiencing that special sense of fulfilment that comes from achieving something really worthwhile.
Sunday 5th November
Welsh Disabled Sports Team Championship
TENDERFOOT RELINQUISH THEIR WELSH CHAMPIONS CROWN!
Once again two teams of disabled athletes from Pembrokeshire competed in the Welsh Disabled Sports Team Championships held at the Newport International Sports Village on Sunday, 5th November - however they were unable to emulate their achievement of the past three years and at the end of the day had to settle for a creditable third place, missing out on top spot by only one point.
The team came first in both the Table Tennis and Target Golf Competitions. In Table Tennis they has three of the four Semi-finalist competing, James Dash (Narberth), Lynsey McCarthy (Milford Haven) and David Phillips (Pentlepoir), whilst the successful Golf team comprised of Diane Phillips (Pentlepoir), Marion Haymer (Broadmoor) and Team Captain Daniel Pullin (Rosemarket).
The Team also achieved third place in New Age Kurling thanks to John and Angie Richards (Broad Haven) and Jonathan Hubbard of Kilgetty and a further third place in Pool thanks to James Dash and Jonathan Hubbard.
Other notable achievements came in the Weightlifting thanks to Darren Briggs (Milford Haven) and Jack Wood (Rosemarket), 2nds Team Captain Geriant Lewis (Saundersfoot), Simon Woolley (Wooden) and Kimbereley Woolley (Kilgetty), with good performances from Francis Corbett (Narberth) and Freda Williams (Narberth) in the Football Shoot-out, Wayne Llewellyn (Llandissilio) in the Swimming and George MacCreath (Redberth) in the Shot Putt.
The Tenderfoot Team was formed in conjunction with the Rotary Clubs of Saundersfoot and Tenby who undertook the training for this years competition, ably assisted in the transport arrangements by the Rotary Club of Narberth and Whitland, with a strong contingent from all three Clubs travelling to Newport to support the teams. The Rotary Clubs can be justifiably proud of the fact that they are the only Rotary Clubs in Wales to undertake such training for the disabled.
Team Managers Rotarians Charles Hopkinson and Jim Ball of the Rotary Club of Saundersfoot stated that it had been an outstanding achievement and an extremely emotional day, adding that the dedication and strength shown by all team members was fantastic, particularly as the event attracted team entries from all over Wales.
Tenderfoot train at the Regency Hall, Saundersfoot on the last Friday of each month where new entrants are encouraged to participate. Further information about Tenderfoot is available from Rotarian Charles Hopkinson on (01834) 813433.
