about our Club, Members, Membership and Rotary                                Telephone 01263 710118                                                                                                                                                


Rotary/Usborne Illustrated Dictionaries4Life

The Rotary Club of Holt and District, continuing their now established tradition,  once again presented Dictionaries4Life to all 27 Leavers from the Holt Community Primary School after completing that phase of their education at the School.

On the last day of term Terry Sands, the President Elect of the Club was privileged to be invited by the Head Simon Walters to make the presentation.  He was able to enjoy the professionally presented performance of “Pirates and Mermaids”, a play performed by all the school leavers.

*****      and he then enthralled the children      *****

Terry Sands went on to talk about the ‘Rotary the World Over’  campaign to rid the world of Polio. In the past this illness disabled and caused the death of young children all over the world including the UK. In 1985 there were 125 countries with the infection. Since then, Rotary has helped immunise 2.5 billion children worldwide, and now only 2 countries remain with a Polio problem. To celebrate this success and keep this achievement to the front of everyone’s minds, and to ensure the battle continues for the illness never to return, Rotary Clubs all over the UK planted thousands of ‘ Purple for Polio’, crocuses in their local communities. Here in Holt, last autumn 5000 bulbs were planted, 1000 of them by the underpass near the School. This year 5000 more will be planted around the town and if you would like to join the Rotary Club of Holt and District in the planting, please contact us.    



Holt and District Rotary’s fundraising to provide an Admiral Nurse for our area has been boosted by a garden tea party held on July 9th hosted by Greg and Jan Cooper, attended by over 130 people and raising over £850. Two gardens were open, the rain kept away, large quantities of cake were consumed and the plant stall did brisk business.

Recruitment is currently underway for this specialist Dementia nurse who will be based at the Holt Medical Practice. As well as directly supporting people living at home with Dementia the role will also support local voluntary groups, care homes and other medical practices.

In addition to the Rotary Club of Holt and District’s efforts, funds are also being raised by the Rotary Clubs of North Norfolk and Fakenham, the Friends of Kelling Hospital, the Kelling Hospital Appeal and C.T Baker Group Ltd.

Holt and District Rotary would like to thank Sue and Simon Gresham and Edgefield Nursery for supporting this event. If you would like to know more about this project contact Greg Cooper on 01263 710600.
