A recent trip to Vadstena, Sweden has completed our contact club visits for this year. 
A party of twelve, Rotarians and their partners, were guests of Vadstena Rotary. The Swedish club had planned a varied programme of activities to give us a flavour of Vadstena, historical, cultural and traditional. We certainly had an action-packed weekend, but there was also time to make new friends, an important part of Rotary International.

VISIT TO RNLI AT SHEERNESS 16TH JULY

Posted by: Miles Lemon - Mon, 17/07/2017 - 9:43am

On Sunday we were treated to a morning out on the Minster RNLI Lifeboat to see the work they do in keeping lives safe when in distress. We went out in to the Thames estuary and circled the Montgomery wreck and watched a 'Man Overboard' training rescue session. We were thoroughly impressed with the professionalism and dedication of the crew on the large vessel and the smaller RIB boat. Thanks to all the team at the Minster lifeboat station for a very memorable experience!!
