While the Rotarians held their meeting
last week the Rotary Ladies met for a meal next door. The Club held a
business meeting when they broke up into their various committees and later
reported back on their discussions. They would assist at the forthcoming
Rickshaw Ride on Wednesday night when it visits Hawick for The One Show for
Children in Need.
Forthcoming events were discussed
including the President's Night next Friday at Mansfield Clubrooms, the Film
Night the next night and the End Polio Now raffle of a painting of the Three
Bridges. Bikes for Africa had been given £100, Plant a Tree £50 and the
Disasters Emergency Committee £250. A donation was also made to the
Anthony Nolan Trust in memory of the late John Robson whose granddaughter recently
ran the New York Marathon to raise money for the Trust.
Junior Vice President Linden Warburton
gave a report on the recent District Conference at Newcastle which several
members attended. Linden also laid the Rotary wreath at the War Memorial
in Wilton Lodge Park at Sunday's Remembrance Day Service.
