Skittles Night 2016

On 22 November, a large crowd of Rotarians, Inner Wheelers, and hangers-on went up to the Woodfalls Inn for an evening of skittles, food and drink, and good company.

Prizes were awarded to:

  • Best Lady Player — Sandra Harte
  • Best Gentleman Player (after a play-off against Karl Jung) — John Oram
  • Best Couple — Richard and Sandra Harte were the top scorers, followed by John and Sally Oram.  Because it was decided that no-one should win more than one prize, this was awarded to the 3rd place couple, Trevor and Jan Halski
  • The Bunny Trophy — Marilyn Pinnicott

Avonway Community Wellbeing Day

wellbeingday2016Avonway Community Wellbeing Day, organised through the Fordingbridge Carer Hub, was held on Wednesday October 26th with the objective of showcasing the many and varied services and support organisations based in and around the Fordingbridge area.

Many have a relationship with the Avonway Centre, who hosted and sponsored the day. Visitors were invited to chat to a social worker about their needs or enjoy tea, coffee and home made cake, try tai-chi for arthritis, or have their portrait taken by the Camera Club, with many other activities presented at the centre.

The Rotary club of Fordingbridge also provided a stand so that we had the opportunity to explain who we are, what we do and how we can help them.

A New Roof in the Playground

During half-term, members of the Fordingbridge Rotary Club were involved with another community
project in the Fordingbridge area.

As a result, St. James’ CE VC First School, Alderholt, now have a new roof on their playground store.

Elliotts, the builders’ merchants in Fordingbridge, kindly provided the roofing materials.
