One of the stunning views experienced by those taking part in our Charity Walk.
40 people and children took part in the Rotary Club of Mendip inaugural charity walk. This included participants from 5 other Rotary Clubs. Frome RC, Frome Town RC, Frome Selwood RC, Bridgwater RC and Bradley Stoke RC. There were 2 walks one for families of approximately 3.5 miles around Compton Bishop and a longer walk of 5.5 miles to Crook Peak and back. Both walks set of from the Cross Memorial Hall.
The walks included a treasure hunt to keep everybody interested. Seven families took part in the event.
After the walk there was a presentation of certificates to all walkers and the winners of each walk who had the most correct answers. This was followed by a BBQ where everybody relaxed in the sunshine and recounted their experiences.
The walk was to raise funds fro the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance
Devizes Rotary, working in partnership with the Devizes Community Area (DCA) Wellbeing Group, is hosting the inaugural DCA Wellbeing Day on Saturday 23 June 2018 from 10am to 3pm on the Small Green in Devizes.
The aim of the day is to provide free entertainment and information to the over 55s in the area. Around 30 exhibitors will be there to explain to visitors what services and activities are available to them, and there will be a demonstration area showing activities such as poppy making and walking sports. Vintage music will be played throughout the day, and there will be a dog show in the main arena run by Vets4Pets.
So, if you are over 55, or know or care for someone who is, why not come down to The Small Green from 10am to 3pm on 23rd June and find out what is happening locally? There are so many activities in the Devizes area that you may not realise are available, so it will definitely be worth a visit.
For further details of the day, including a list of the exhibitors that will be there, the venue layout and timetable and the entertainment that will be provided, go to www.dcawellbeingday.co.uk
