RC Oadby Launde supports the Big Bang

​Big Bang is a national scheme, promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) with the objective of informing and inspiring the general public, particularly young people.

On Saturday 9th February, the Road Show came to Leicester Grammar School when over 3500 members of the public caused huge traffic jams around Oadby and Great Glen as families descended on the school, keen to see and experience one of the 100 plus exhibits on view.


The RC of Oadby Launde was represented by Youth Officer John Niblett, with his home made transporter bridge constructed from a pair of his son’s old roller skates! John, and members of the Club, were kept busy all day, answering questions and promoting Rotary.


The Rotary clubs of Leicester and Leicester De Monfort also attended, together with representatives from Rotary International Britain and Ireland (Rotary GB&I) who brought a large cargo bridge designed and built by young students from cardboard, string, paper clips and other odds and ends.


Pictured are members of the three Rotary clubs together with Rotary GB&I reps. and their working cargo bridge.
