The Finals of 2016 have just recently been completed, Rebecca Wilson, winner of three heats at Woodhey, winner of Regional Final, winner of District Final, and took the dish of the day, the judges at the National Final said her Smoked Haddock Soufflé was outstanding. Congratulations to Rebecca from at the School & Ramsbttom Rotary, coming fourth in the National Fuanl is the best ever for our District. 

Last year there was over seventy pupils took part in the annual “National Rotary Young Chef Cookery Competition”. This year the competition attracted record breaking numbers. There were nine heats with a grand final “cook off” for the winners of each heat. Chris Haddock, the Chef from the Red Hall Hotel kindly agreed to help with the judging.
Mrs Claire Gallie the Head of Food Technology said the interest is growing year on year, pupils are showing a greater interest in food and cooking, the quality and variety is outstanding for year nine pupils. The entrants had to choose a two course healthy meal for two people, provide their own recipes & ingredients, cook and present the food on their “ dressed”  table all in one and half hours.
A winner was chosen with a runner up & one person in reserve who will be mentored by Chef Chris in preparation for the next stage which is the District Competition to be held in October. The winners will go on to London for the national final. The winning prize is a gourmet trip to Italy, with lots of wonderful dining and sightseeing.

Ugandan Charity   

What a splendid sight! 

Our Rotary Ladies Knitwitters group, plus very kind friends and relations, have, during the past three months, knitted 35 beanie hats, 45 fish and chip jumpers, 3 teddies and 1 blanket plus a crocheted blanket. They were given to Carole of TUSK (Transport for Ugandan Sick Children) at a Rotary meeting in June. She was overwhelmed and will take them back to Uganda. Fish and chip jumpers? Nights can be cold in Uganda and It is said that mothers were so poor, their babies would be wrapped in newspaper, like a bag of chips, to keep warm. Still, it's a catchy name for these little jumpers which are much appreciated.
