And So The Wheel Turns

The first of July marks the start of a new Rotary year and at the Woolsack Assembly meeting retiring President Michael O’Sullivan handed over the chain of office to Mike Poulter. Mike in turn passed on the chain of Vice-President to Cath Lovell.

New President Mike expressed his delight at being asked to take the role and declared it to be an honour to lead this very active club of Rotarians. Mike described some of his thoughts and wishes for the coming year, including the selection of CEDAR as his chosen charity. We will learn more of that later.

Retiring President Michael said he had had 12 months of good fellowship, coupled with community service, fundraising and great fun, so what more could a Rotarian want.

District Assistant Governor, Michael Hart, observed what a friendly and active club Woolsack is and encouraged us to maintain the high level of activity into the new Rotary year.

CEDAR nominated as President’s Charity

There is no denying the worries felt among those concerned with the population’s health about the growing problem of diabetes. Dr Roselle Herring, consultant Endocrinologist and Diabetologist, (seen right with President Mike Poulter), recently visited our club to explain the work of Cedar Centre. This organisation, part of RSCH in Guildford, is a centre of excellence for the treatment of diabetes.


Dr Herring emphasised the importance of proper education of staff in local GP surgeries to enable appropriate treatment for diabetics to be given locally. However for those who need more, the Cedar Centre provides a one-stop centre for comprehensive treatment. The Centre also does leading edge research work into the causes and treatment of diabetes and problems of the endocrine system.

President Mike has nominated the Cedar Centre as his chosen charity for the Rotary year just begun.


Courtyard Garden Club Meets

This club, composed of Rotarians and IW members under the enthusiastic and skilled guidance of Claire and John Sandy, met this week at Milford Hospital to plant out some bright border plants.

You may recognise under the cloche hats left, club members Joani and Tony doing that well known dance, the marigold shuffle.

The work was also overseen by a number of the hospital residents recuperating in the sunshine.
