The winning school was Losely Fields Junior and Mike congratulated them on their
initiative, design, pupil knowledge, the integration of staff and helpers. He also
noted the hard work and interest shown by the children to develop the garden.
The competition is always keenly contested and we hope to see all the schools entering
again next year. Well done to them all for this year’s work.
A smashing time in Farncombe
Godalming Town Mayor, Cllr Andrew Wilson, tried his hand at the Woolsack plate smash
stand during the Farncombe family day this August.
The Mayor showed great skill in picking off certain pieces of crockery which bodes
well for his forthcoming Mayor’s cricket match.
The Club thanks all those that came to our stand and contributed to the money we
raised for local charities.
Woolsack at Wings and Wheels
Many Woolsack Rotarians were at the Bank Holiday weekend Wings and Wheels show at
Dunsfold this year.
Taking the opportunity to help raise some funds for the club, member Paul Rees arranged
for us to assist the organisers by selling programmes. This had the valuable benefit
of raising some funds and also allowing us the chance to view the static aircraft
and cars and watch the flying displays.
There were many amazing sights including the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight with
a second Lancaster visiting from Canada, an aerobatic display by the red arrows and
many other breathtaking displays.
