On a beautiful day in early September, members and friends of the Club helped to organise and to participate in a very successful tour.
Rotarian Jane Stedman with Friend Stefan Reynolds and two others put together a most interesting route and a challenging quiz to complete whilst motoring from Liphook to the Weald and Downland Museum, via Cowdray Park. The Tour was run in aid of the Guildford charity GUTS and over £3500 was raised.
Many wonderful classic cars were on display including Rolls Royces, Bentleys and a rare Gordon Keeble among many others.
Well done Jane and Stefan and we look forward to another tour next year.
This was the title of a fascinating talk given to the Club by the young student, Tom McGachie. The talk was about Tom’s trip to Japan earlier this year to participate in the World Scout Jamboree.
Tom is studying for his GCSE exams this year but took time out to join 30,000 others scouts from all over the world for the Jamboree in Japan.
Tom said he was most impressed by the experience of meeting young people of so many different nationalities. Even when there was no language in common, imaginative scouts found ways to communicate.
Tom praised the organisation of the event and was immensely grateful for the additional opportunity to visit parts of Japan and particularly to eat Japanese food.
Club members were very impressed by Tom’s maturity, his work to fund the trip and his excellent presentation about the Jamboree.
Five members of the Club joined with other Rotarians and helpers to marshall this year’s Farnham Pilgrim Marathon organised by Farnham Weyside RC. We looked after the Pewley Down section of the run and made sure the runners were on the right track and suitably encouraged.
Whilst the marathon attracted over 900 runners and was successful as a fundraising event, in aid of a Farnham Care Centre and the Alzheimers Society, it was slightly marred by some vandalism of signs, causing some runners to go the wrong way.
