A Community Event -Milton Rooms. Saturday 28th September 2019
Within Malton, Norton and the surrounding villages there is a growing problem of loneliness and isolation, which reflect the general pattern in the UK. Added to this, the population of Malton and Norton has increased by some 3000 people in recent years; many of these being newcomers to the area who may be unaware of the many organisations, groups and social clubs that exist in their neighbourhood.
There are over fifty local voluntary organisations, societies and self- help bodies in the two towns and Rotary helped them publicise the good work that they do and to attract new members
To this end the club invited them to display their wares at the Milton Rooms on Saturday 28th September 2019. There were 41 organisations present and available to help and advise.
The event was free, refreshments were available and some three hundred members of the public attended.
Rotary wish to thank Yorkshire Carers, Ryedale DC,Malton TC, Fitzwilliam Estate, M & N Lions and Two Ridings for their support and advice for this event.
The winner of the raffle for the Quilt was a visitor from Australia. .Mrs Anne Lonsdale has now forwarded the prize to the winner. (Is it cold enought for a quilt in Australia?) and is now saving up to pay for the postage
