July News

To mark the end of outgoing President Peter's year, a lunch was organised at The Three Horseshoes in Laleham. It was a very enjoyable afternoon, with good food and conversation for one and all.  

July got off to a busy start. Roger Dix kindly spoke to us at our first meeting on the history of Sweet Peas. Our resident sweet-pea expert, Vernon learnt something new which was a surprise given his predilection for subject matter. The talk ended with bouquets of Sweet Peas handed out to those attending. Thank you very much Roger for an entertaining evening and for your continued support of the Club.

Our first Rotary Technology Tournament took place at Thomas Knyvett College on 8th July. We had five teams entering the competition representing five schools in our area. Mayor of Spelthorne, Cllr Mary Madams supported us by attending and handing out the Certificates and prizes to the competitors. Anthea and her team of helpers worked to get this event of the ground - many thanks for all your hard work, the event was an enjoyable success.

New President Inducted

To mark the end of his year as President, a lunch was organised at The Three Horseshoes in Laleham. Unfortunately I could not attend as it was held on my grandson’s birthday but I understand from those that attended that it was very enjoyable, good food and conversation for one and all.  

Turning to this month, we are getting off to a busy start. Roger Dix kindly spoke to us at our first meeting on the History of Sweet Peas. I understand that even Vernon leant something new which was a surprise given his predilection for subject matter. The talk ended with bouquets of Sweet Peas handed out to those attending.

Many thanks to Anthea for all your hard work and I am sure that it will be an enjoyable success.

Sunday 14th July saw the induction of our new President, Kevin Butler. Kevin has been a club member for many years and  has been a very active member in that time. After being presented the President's jewel by outgoing President Peter Grainger, Kevin's first job was to induct Vice President Ray Allen who will take over the club Presidency in July 2020.
