Wendy and husband Kevin spent 4 weeks in New Zealand during autumn 2009. Whilst there they took the opportunity to visit 5 Rotary Clubs and presented our bannerettes to them. They returned with 4 bannerettes each and approximately 1700 photos !
Wendy presented the bannerettes to Club President Graham.
The bannerettes are from (in order of visiting) :
