On Thursday 30th June our Memory Cafe had a Special Queen's Jubilee celebration, with a Special Cardboard cut-out guest (Queen Elizabeth), but appointing their very own King Reg and Queen Maisie!!
On Thursday 23rd June, Jane and Gerry accompanied the Rota kids from St Peter’s School, East Bridgford to the Veolia Recycling facility in Mansfield.
The visit included an informative session in the education unit followed by a look round the working site where we could view the activities and machinery in action.
They saw how the centre operates and how this connects to the day to day recycling at home and globally.
The Head Teacher, Richard Tomlinson gave the children 3 words to take on board before the visit:- Shock, (what surprised them) Inform, (How we can give information to others) Persuade. (How we can influence other people to recycle effectively). This was to be discussed on their return to school.
A highly enjoyable morning with enthusiastic, interested, and extremely well-behaved Rota kids. It was a pleasure and a privilege to join them. GT/JH
Following a donation from our Community Fund we received the following note from the family:
"We are extremely grateful for the support from the Rotary club to help Lewis train & compete at the highest National level.
Lewis lives in Bingham & trains with the squad in Bassetlaw normally 7 or 8 times a week. During the 2021/22 season, he has so far achieved far more than he thought possible - 2 x Junior (16& Under) Bronze medals at Swim England Winter Nationals & a 4th place finish in the Junior (U18) 50m Back Final at British Selection Championships in April.
His focus in the pool at present is the end of season British Summer Championships where he has been invited to compete in the 3 events of backstroke (50, 100 & 200m). 10 days later he will be back in Sheffield competing in the English Summer National Championship where he switches strokes to Butterfly & the Individual Medley, the kind & generous donation from the Rotary Club will be used towards the entry fees & other associated costs."
