Have your say

Rotary has a bright future

I would like, through the medium of your paper, to congratulate the Alnwick Rotakids on the presentation they gave at The Rotary District 1030 Conference in Harrogate last weekend.

The Rotakids are the youngest section of Alnwick Rotary Club. They are all pupils at either Swansfield Park First, The Duke’s or Lindisfarne Middle Schools, and over the past two years have raised an amazing amount of money for local, national and international causes, as well as running enterprise schemes in order to raise money for their own schools.

Over 300 delegates listened in awe as the youngsters described the many ways in which they’d raised money. They were applauded through their talk.

They spoke clearly, confidently and with obvious enjoyment. At the end they were given a standing ovation before being presented with a Rotary Citation. These young people are a credit to their parents, their schools and to themselves and the members of Alnwick Rotary Club are very proud to have them as part of our club.

Jill Clark,

President, Alnwick Rotary Club

War show helps raise funds

Howick Coastal Choir and Mini Choir recently held a 1914 Show in Howick Village Hall. The choirs commemorated the momentous year of 1914 with songs and readings from the era.

A supper of bully beef and pudding was enjoyed by everyone and as usual the choirs were in fine voice. The total of £492 was raised for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
