Tuesday 24 May:
Business Meeting. Select but enthusiastic group caught up with activities to date. A reminder that we do now have a RYLA candidate for the Adventure training in Wales this July. First time for ages! Laurren Davey (18), a nursing student and member of Bicester Army Cadets was awarded the club’s sponsored place. Thanks to Pete, Mike & Yvonne for organising.
Other good news on the ‘New Generations’ front is that Stephen Courtney (Junior) and Ben Vickars (Intermediate) were District 1090 winners in the RIBI Young Photographer Competition
. Ben went on to become runner up in the national competition, winning £50! Presentation to be arranged after half term (when Lars is back from holiday). Super entries from Fringford for the Club round too, and everyone is a winner in this comp.
Big Green Box
week is 11-18 June and we are hoping to do something to promote Shelterbox
. Possibly join up with Scouts and schools already involved with Young ShelterBox. Big Box & Buy is the main theme for this year with a host of celebrities offering items for auction. Clubs are being encouraged to do their own ebay auction or hold a bring & buy so unwanted clutter is turned into essential items of survival for those most in need.
will be visiting Bicester on his bike ride around the District to raise awareness and funds for Life Education Centres.
He is due to arrive in Bicester at 12.40 on 11 June. Just in time for lunch! Suggestion is we somehow combine the ShelterBox display with his arrival……. Suggestion also is that some of the more energetic might like to accompany Laurie on the next leg of his journey to Woodstock ……
End Polio Now
Most members will now have received their bottle of Tiptree Tomato ketchup (yes, that’s the one used by the Queen!) Generously donated by Wilkin & Sons to Rotary Clubs throughout RIBI, this can be procured for a donation of £1. When finished, wash out the bottle and fill it with small change and donate to End Polio Now. Neat idea, eh?
There is talk of holding BBQs on 7 August to attempt a Guinness Book Record for the highest number of BBQs held simultaneously on one day. Incoming DG Nial Blair will visit as many as possible in his Saucemobile!!
