On Wednesday 14th Rotarians from the Club with some helpers took a record number of children with special needs.  Rotary take over the park for the day so children can enjoy the rides and activities for free.  A sandwich meal is provided at lunchtime.  A get time was had by all!

On Wednesday 21st President Graham (as what was probably the last of many of his presentations during the Year 2021-23) was please to present a cheque for £1,670 to Cynthia Spencer Hospice from the funds raised by our Charity Golf Day in May.  More details visit the PAGE

Satuday 15th July we held our first Hobby Horse Race at Horton.  There were about 140 people attending for a BBQ and a chance to have a flutter on the "horses" ridden my members family and friends at the throw of a dice.  Avoiding the stormy conditions was the biggest challenge, but the day was a great success and raised over £3,000 towards our Chitippi School Classroom Build Project.   Thanks to all those who supported the event by taking part and sponsoring horses and races.
