Youth Speaks District Final

The District Final did take place on 17th March despite another sprinkling of snow. There were eight teams entered and the standard of all of them was extremely high. The winning team came from King Edwards Girls School, Handsworth, who chose the topic “True Happiness”. Our team from Heart of England School performed very well, as they did when they came to us in January, but unfortunately not quite good enough to win. Their topic was “Britain’s View of Disability is Merieval”. We wish them every success in future.

Bordesley Green Girls School & 6th Form Mock Interview Project

At very short notice four of us had the opportunity to go to the school and help with their Mock Interview project. There were about 180 6th Form pupils taking part with around 30 interviewers from various organizations. It was a worthwhile day and we were all very impressed with the confidence and ability of the girls. The school thanked us for helping and we agreed the club would help again next year if requested.

Watermill Visit – May?

Warwick and Sue Kendrick are hoping to organise a visit to Sue’s Uncle’s working Watermill. This will probably take place in May. The lighter nights need to have arrived as there isn’t any electricity in the mill.

Warwick and Sue arranged a visit a couple of years ago and it was a very enjoyable day. We all went to lunch afterwards and had great fellowship.

Skittles evening – 2 June 2018

Charles Perry and Geoff Arthur have organised a Skittles Evening.

It will be held at Bickenhill Church Hall, B92 0DN. 7pm

The Church Hall is 100 yards past the Church.

You will need to take your own drinks and glasses.

Priory Theatre, Kenilworth – Steptoe & Son - 6 June 2018

Tickets:  £12 payable in advance of the evening at the time of booking the theatre.

For this event to go ahead we need to sell 40 tickets. The theatre holds 120 seats and for charity evenings, bookings need to be in a block of 40 or the full 120.

Please try and encourage friends and family to join us to make this event possible.

Some of you may like to get together for a meal near the Theatre beforehand. If this seems popular I’ll arrange an attendance sheet.

Email Jane if you are interested or complete the attendance form available at Rotary meetings.


Warren has access to printing Rotary cards (you can put personal and business details on). He has all the details and one to show what they are like. They cost £30 for 250 cards.
