Wed 14th Jun: Kids Out

 

The Big Day Out, which is organised by the KidsOut organisation and supported by Rotary International, will take place on 14th June. Along with other clubs from District 1200 we will be taking disadvantaged kids from the area to Longleat Safari Park.

Sat 17th Jun: Rowdeford School Fete

 

The Devizes Rotary Food and Fun stalls will be in use at the Rowdeford School Fete on Saturday 17th June. Let's hope for some good weather!

 


Sun18th Jun: Paella Party

 

The Rotary Cooking Team will be in action again at a private garden party where they will be cooking paella for 35 people. This was one of the prizes drawn in the Raffle at the Evening at Springfields Academy held earlier in the year. Let's again keep our fingers crossed for fine weather.

 


Sat 1st Jul: Devizes Beer Festival

 

This year we are partnering with the Guides to present a combined 'Food Hall' to the visitors at the Devizes Beer Festival, which will take place on Saturday 1st July from 11:30am to 10pm at the Wharf in Devizes. There will be a range of food available including all-time favourites of hot dogs and burgers served by the Guides to the famous Devizes Rotary Chilli, and as usual all the profits taken by Rotary will be donated to good causes at home and abroad. This is a very important but busy fund raising event for us, so if you would like to help out please contact Cliff on cliffvevans@yahoo.co.uk

Tues 4th Jul: Devizes Rotary Half Year Review

 

 
As usual time has flown by, and at the end of June I will come to the end of my Presidential year. We reviewed the first 6 month of my tenure in January, and so now I'd now like to invite everyone to come and review the second six months at a meeting on Tuesday 4th July. 
 
At this we will be recognising the organisations that we've supported during the past 6 months, including Brighter Futures (GWH Radiotherapy Appeal), Dorothy House, Devizes Opportunity Centre, Julias House, Rowdeford School and others we would like to support such as the Caenhill Countryside Centre and Open Blue. I'm delighted to say that representatives from each of the organisations will be there, as will the Mayor of Devizes.
 
The review will take place from 6pm - 7:30pm at the Crown on New Park Street in Devizes, and a buffet meal will be svailable.
 
If you'd like to attend please contact Jean on knoxallen@googlemail.com

 


Wed 12th Jul: Devizes Rotary SuperChoir 2017

 

I've no doubt that once again we are in for a very special treat when between 150 and 200 children from six local Primary Schools sing over a dozen popular songs together as one super choir. The event will be held from 6:30 - 8:30 pm (with a 30 minute interval) on Wednesday 12th July in the main Hall at Dauntsey's School, West Lavington, SN10 4HE. Once again the choir will be conducted by Carole Berry, our Artistic Director, and guided by TV / movie composer Simon May.
