ANNIVERSARY WALK: A group of Seahouses and District Rotary Club members commemorated the tenth anniversary of creating Seahouses Rotary Way, by meeting on the Way itself and walking the Seahouses Heritage Trail which includes the Way.

Rotary Way is a footpath running parallel to Broad Road, actually a narrow road which connects the village of North Sunderland to the northern extremity of Seahouses village.

It makes it possible and enjoyable to walk an attractive path which winds its way through an area of woodland planted at the same time, and now maturing well.

The group intended to end the circular walk where they started with tea and cakes to celebrate the occasion but the onset of rain caused a diversion to the home of Rotarian Muriel O’Brian who kindly provided hospitality, a roof and excellent refreshments.

Visitors are always welcome at Tuesday evening meetings in the Olde Ship, Seahouses.

Meanwhile, several Rotarians from Seahouses club were guests of the Duchess of Northumberland when the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh visited Alnwick recently and attended the garden party for carers and volunteers.

Father Tony Owens conducted a fun quiz for members and visitors at the lastest Tuesday evening meeting at the Olde Ship, which was followed by the usual excellent buffet meal.

The annual barbecue was held on Saturday afternoon in the garden of president Roger Howell.

A jolly time was had and the rain kept off.

A fitting end to the Rotary year of President Roger will be this week’s meeting when he will hand over to incoming president Stuart Walton.
