Chard Rotary welcomes the 'Ice Maidens'

Hear about the intrepid team of six who became the first 'All Woman' team to traverse the Antarctic Peninsula unsupported.


Chard will become one of the first places in the country to hear, from one of the participants, how six members of the British Armed Forces became the world's first All-Female team to walk across the Antarctic Peninsula unsupported.

Major Natalie Taylor, one of the expedition leaders, will how the intrepid group trained for this gruelling walk and how they succeeded in crossing one of the most hostile areas of our planet.

Chard Rotary Club invite anyone who is interested in hearing about this fantastic achievement to join them in St. Mary's Church, Chard on Thursday 19th April 2018 for what should be a fascinating evening.

The event starts at 7.00pm and tickets are available from Barron's Outfitters, Holyrood Street, Chard ata cost of £5.00 per person (under 16's Free). Tickets can also be purchased on the night or reserved by ringing President Robin Williams on 07824640088.

All proceeds will be equally divided between the Rotary Foundation and a charity of Natalie's choice.

We look forward to seeing you there.
