The Mayor and Mayoress Opens the Sunbury Manor School Garden. April 2017.
The Mayor of Spelthorne Alfred Friday and his Mayoress Kay Friday opened the Rotary Garden at Sunbury Manor School.
This garden has been created by the joint Rotary Clubs of Shepperton and Sunbury. Shepperton and Sunbury meet in the evening at the Holiday Inn, Felix lane whilst Aurora, meet as a breakfast Club at the Boathouse, Chertsey Bridge. This was a joint venture by both Clubs to create a wheel chair access garden for the pupils - transforming a patch of waste patch ground into a quiet space for children to enjoy.
There were many hours of hard work and friendly banter between the two Clubs. I am told that there are frogs habitating the refurbished pond and I am sure that the gazebo and benches will get a proper amount of use.
The Head Teacher gave a short speech, followed by the presidents of both Clubs. The Mayor, Cllr Alfred Friday added a few words which emphasised his personal connections with the school.

Andrew's sponsored cycle ride to raise money for Kids For Kids
On Sunday 4 December 2016 Andrew Welch, having been so inspired by the talk at the Rotary District Conference, decided to cycle for the charity Kids For Kids. He raised £1000 from his sponsors which was donated to Kids for Kids.
Quoting from the Kids For Kids homepage:
'KIDS FOR KIDS helps children the world has forgotten, children in Darfur, Sudan, who live lives of inexcusable and unimaginable hardship. Our key project is a goat loan – we don’t believe in charity, we believe in enabling people to help themselves. Children are malnourished in every village. Many have had no protein, minerals or vitamins for months on end which not only means lasting damage to them physically but their IQ is reduced, often irreperably. Goat’s milk transforms a child’s health.
