District Disability Games, The Heron Club and Us
This Sunday we had a tremendous day at the District 1070 Disability Games in Stamford. We had arranged for the Heron Club in St Ives to participate and Judy Bralee and her brilliant gang of helpers entered 19 club members into the events, which covered swimming, Boccia, Kurling, table tennis, darts, shooting, archery, and wheelchair athletics. Not only did everyone compete, we also had winners, and congratulations go to Vicky Garwood who won the Senior Female Weightlifting, and to Andrew Chomyn who triumphed in the Senior Male Darts. In all some 150 competitors were involved coming from as far afield as Spalding, Northampton, Woodhall Spa, Lutterworth, Sleaford, Lincoln, and of course us in St Ives.
It was a shame that Rtn Sue Duma, after all her hard work and commitment in helping to get the whole event organised, couldn't enjoy the fun om the day, and the same for Sandra King and Ken Millard. But they could rest assured that we had sent our crack away-team to help both in support of the Heron Club, and to help with the events. Well done indeed to Adrian Acton (St Ives Herons Team Manager), Sally Heffer & Iain Martin (Reception and Information Desk Managers), President Moira Penney and son Stuart (Weightlifting Event Organiser) and Alan Ward (Archery Event Organiser).
Thanks also go to our hosts The Stamford Endowed Schools, the RCs of Stamford and Stamford Burleigh, and all the District Disability Games Committee. What a terrific day this was - roll on next year - you bet we'll be there again.

Youngs Carers Have a Great Time at Grafham Water - And So Do We.
Last week we arranged for the Cambs Carers Trust to take 26 of their young carers, plus a few excited Rotarians, to Grafham Water for the day, to have a go at the activities. The weather wasn't at it's kindest, but that didn't stop the fun, and in the morning the youngsters tackled the climbing wall and archery, and then went sailing in the afternoon.
The pictures really say it all, in fact we have so many, that the sailing ones will appear on the next post. The day is a brilliant example of how we spend all those smashing donations that the lovely people of St Ives and the villages give us. The young carers really do have a great time.
We mustn't forget to thank Adam, Belinda and Paul from Grafham Water for running such a great day and also thank Andy,Tania, Ella, and Bisha from the CCT for being such sports on the day, and also to Ela Kosowska from Cambs CC.. Oh yes and well done Rotarians Cornish, Thomas and Ward for the photos, and managing not to get told off too much this year for getting in the way.
The Carers Trust does an absolutely essential job, and if anyone would like to know more, here is their website address. www.carerstrustcpn.org

Know Your Blood Pressure Day Comes Again to St Ives

We have joined forces with the Stroke Association to offer free blood pressure checks at The Corn Exchange in St Ives on Sat. April 21st. The event will run from 10 am to 2 pm and hopes to raise awareness of the links between high blood pressure and strokes. According to the Stroke Association a blood pressure check only takes a moment and it's such a simple way to reduce your chance of a stroke. The SA goes on to say:
High blood pressure is a contributing factor in around half of strokes in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Rotary, both in partnership with our local teams and independently, took over 23,000 blood pressures in 2017. Over 6,000 of those tested were advised to make an appointment with their GP to discuss their reading.
For every 10 people diagnosed with high blood pressure, seven remain undiagnosed and untreated - this is more than 5.5 million people in England alone. With Rotary’s support every year, we can reach those at highest risk with our important message.

So please don't hesitate to come along for a free test and a chat - and a cup of tea.
