Chelwood Bridge welcomes a new Rotarian.

DSC03130 copy.jpg I am delighted that in the RAF’s Centenary Year and on my last night as Club President, that I am able to welcome Malcolm Palmer, a former RAF Squadron Leader, Wing Commander, Group Captain and Air Commodore into the Family of International Rotary.

After his illustrious career in the RAF and the MOD, he joined a small Lichfield based company as Managing Director. The business quickly expanded under his leadership and, in 1998, he led a management buy-out. After continued rapid expansion he sold the business in 2001 to Devonport Dockyard where he became a Board Member until his retirement in 2008.

I have only briefly touched upon Martin’s achievements here because I do not want to steal his thunder when he gives a talk to the Club on his life and exploits in the RAF and in Devonport. (I am sure he told me that he is willing to do this!)

I, for one, am very much looking forward to that.

Martin has already shown us that he intends to be an active and imaginative member of our Club and the International Committee.

It is my great privilege to welcome him as a member of Chelwood Bridge Rotary Club.

Mendip Rotary Charity Walk

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
