CLUB VISIT TO SWEDEN

Posted by: Miles Lemon - Sun, 03/09/2017 - 10:57am

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!!

Posted by: Miles Lemon - Fri, 07/07/2017 - 11:37am

 Once again the Club ran a bottle stall in support of The Friends of Faversham Cottage Hospital at their Summer Fair last Saturday the 1st July.

This is a popular event which the club has supported for a number of years and this year was no exception.  Lots of visitors to the Fair tried their luck on the bottle stall and their were many lucky winners.  With prizes ranging from washing-up liquid and bubble bath to soft drinks, wines and spirits, some winners were more lucky than others!  It was great to see that at the end the day we raised £171  for the Hospital.

 

 

QE SCHOOL F1 PROJECT

Posted by: Miles Lemon - Fri, 07/07/2017 - 10:14am

On Monday this week our club had an extremely interesting presentation from George and Zoe of the "IQ F1 Team" from the QE School Faversham. Our club sponsored them to take part in the National School F1 championships. Participants had to approach the project using all aspects of engineering and commerce and adhere to rigid rules laid down by the Schools F1 organisation. The great news is the QE School team came 4th out of over 50 teams. Their determination and skill will hopefully get them up the table next year so they can compete at the international finals.
