You really don't want to miss this. It is a brilliant event with all sorts of fun and games - quite literally, The details are on the poster below, but let that first class Rotarian Juliet Cole tell you all about it.
"The party will be held at Hartford Cottage, 1 Longstaff Way, Hartford PE29 1XT. Tea will be served at 3.00 pm and will include a glass of Pimms. We will be having a honesty bar, games, and live entertainment. Doors open at 2.00 pm and entrance is by voluntary donation.

Congratulations Adrian

......... and what a smashing year from our two Jeeps.

We've copied below a picture and article from this week's Hunts Post acknowledging the tremendous efforts of that all-round good chap Adrian Acton, and the award of his Paul Harris Fellowship Pin with Sapphire, plus congratulating our two outgoing Joint Presidents Eileen Knight and Sue O'Donovan who have led us through a year that has not only been great fun and raised record funding towards the charities and good causes that we support, but their enthusiasm and friendliness has rubbed off on us all. What a terrific trio.

Day Of The Sunflowers
Never mind Triffids, we think we know where John Wyndham got his inspiration from. Our intrepid duo Rtns Sadler and Acton have been out photographing how our Helianthus are getting on and it really is impressive stuff. We'll let Adrian give the progress report on the couple of dozen sunnies pictured below. Long way to go yet.
Adrian's report:-
"25 people entered, 3 fell at the first hurdle, slugs, cats, nextdoor neighbours etc, a couple were not evident in the front gardens today, but that could be down to a variety of reasons. However hopefully each photo will be known to its owner so they can judge how they are doing for themselves. It looks a close run thing at the moment with nothing to chose between the first few with flowers!!

It will be interesting to see if the front runners now are the same at the Final Judgement Day which we expect to be early in September"

Great Fun on Holt Island

Together with that fine organisation the St Ives Inner Wheel, we recently hosted on Holt Island two groups of local senior citizens; one group from Rose Cottage in Broughton , and the other from The Rheola Care Centre in St Ives. Around forty guests and their carers were entertained by local Rotarians and Inner Wheelers, which included a leisurely hour spent on the island, followed by refreshments and entertainment, courtesy of those talented Rotarians John Pilbeam and Adrian Acton, at the All Saints Church parish hall, in St Ives.
All in all this was a smashing day out, as not only were we able to entertain a large number of our local senior citizens , but it was also good fun to work with our colleagues of the St Ives Inner Wheel, for whose help we are extremely grateful. We would also like to thank not only the care homes and carers for all their assistance, but also the management teams of Holt Island and All Saints Parish Church, for the use of their facilities. This is the fifth year we have done this, and long may it continue.
