Jane Stedman becomes our newest member

Jane Stedman has just become our latest member and she is pictured left receiving a Rotary pin from President Mike Poulter.

Jane, who lives in Godalming and has worked with Penningtons Solicitors locally for many years, is also involved with local charities. She is a stalwart promoter and successful fundraiser for GOLO, the Godalming Lottery, and is also a fundraiser for the GUTS cancer charity based in Guildford.

Woolsack is very pleased that she has decided to join the club and hopes she enjoys being a Rotarian as much as the other 37 members do.

Past President Michael goes to Hogwarts

Past President Michael O’Sullivan organised a most enjoyable visit for 24 members and partners to the Harry Potter studios at Leavesden. Whilst it is quite possible we were the oldest group of visitors by some distance, with many of us knowing nothing about the films or the books, we were totally amazed at the scale and imagination of the sets and props used, not to mention the computer generated graphics.

Michael had arranged for us to have three young guides for the 3 hour tour and they proved to be most entertaining and full of detailed knowledge of the films and sets.

In the image above left it is just possible to make out Michael at the wheel of the ‘flying’ Ford Anglia as  it swoops low over the Hogwarts Express, giving his passengers and the rest of us a great experience.

New Malden Rotarians join us to hear ‘reflections of a policy wonk’

On Monday 20th October we welcomed Peter Harris as our guest speaker. During his career Peter has had a number of jobs starting as a barrister and, although officially retired, he still teaches law part time at an Oxford college. Peter's talk was entitled “Reflections of a Policy Wonk” and was based on his time helping to prepare policies for various government departments. His talk was very interesting and thought provoking and covered policy making in all forms. Although scornful of many policies (sometimes tongue in cheek) the talk was enjoyed by all and Peter was asked many searching questions.



We were joined at the meeting by 14 members of the Rotary Club of New Malden. We have forged a good relationship with New Malden over the last year and they are helping to raise funds for an Ethiopian water project being co-ordinated by Godalming Woolsack. The photograph shows their president, Peter Skinley, handing over a cheque towards the project to Woolsack president, Mike Poulter.
