CHRISTMAS MARKET, Saundersfoot Harbour
From Friday 4th December to Sunday 6th December 2015, we could be found roasting chestnuts at the popular Christmas Market on the Saundersfoot Harbour Car Park. We were just inside the main entrance to the marquee, and lost no opportunity to cajole visitors to the market into buying a bag of hot roasted chestnuts. It enabled us to meet both residents of and visitors to Saundersfoot and for them to exchange seasonal greetings with the Club members who were roasting them!
All Rotary events are dependent upon the goodwill and efforts of Rotarians, the actions of the participants and often benefit from the generosity of local people and businesses. All sandcastle builders are given prizes with a larger selection of goodies for the first prize winner and second prize winners, all of which are donated by a local businessman who insists on receiving no credit for his valuable support. The photo below shows Rotarians Peter, main organiser of the sand castle competition, flanked by Rotarians Lionel and Brian who helped throughout the event.
The picture shows the moment immediately before the start of our first duck race of the 2014 season: Rotarians Peter and Keith are poised, the sluice gate in Saundersfoot Harbour is being raised and when the current is powerful enough to carry the ducks .............................................they're off!
