Club Monthly Digest
Following hard on the heels of our very successful and major fundraising event, The Chipping Sodbury Classic Car Run, the Chipping Sodbury Rotary Club recently arranged for 64 elderly people from local residential homes and churches to have a visit by coach to DobbiesGarden Centre in Cirencester for a spell of shopping in the numerouse outlets there rounded off with everyone enjoying a cream tea.
Also the club was able to offer a local parent with a child with learning dificulties the opportunity to enjoy a well deserved holiday by the sea and in fine weather at the Naish Holiday Village in New Milton.
The club has arranged both of these annual events for some years.
The club was very pleased to fund the purchase of eight sets of kit for St John`s Mead Primary School netball team and to contribute to local student Toby Conibear`s expences to represent Team Avon at the English Schools Track and Field Championships in Birmingham where he secured a silver medal in the hammer event and qualified for the home countries international meeting to represent England.
Our club President, John Wells, was privileged to be invited by Chipping Sodbury School to present the end of year certificates to students, recognising inter alia, academic and sporting achievement and also to present the Chipping Sodbury Club community awards for endeavour.
The clubs youth committee has worked hard in supporting the school on several projects over the year and enjoys an excellent rapport with the school as indeed it does with Brimsham Green School.
Turning to the fun side of the club`s activities we have two teams in the Rotary District Boules competition.One team has won all four matches played so far whilst the other has drawn one and lost one.
We are always keen to welcome potential new members. We meet twice a month (first and third Mondays) at Chipping Sodbury Golf Club.
