Still a few places left for eRotarians and their friends and relations to join us on a visit to Salisbury on 3 August. We will be visiting the Trussell Trust who run many of the foodbanks in the UK. Afterwards join us in sharing a picnic in the surrounds of Salisbury Cathedral followed by a guided tour. More details on the forum and on the website. It’s another great way for eRotarians to meet and share fellowship.

Quilting success A couple of weeks ago we reported on the Quilt making project being run by the Interact Club at Uplands school. All the squares were created by the children and then stitched together by eRotarian Mary Loran. And here is the finished quilt which will be auctioned to raise monies for Rotary Charities.
