New! Activities in June

On 13 June, Richard Kenyon, vice president of Cranleigh Rotary Club, led a presentation from the incoming chairpersons of the Club's committees to set out the strategy for our 50th year as a Rotary Club.
 
Roger Stent, the Vice District Governor, attended the meeting in order to hear about the progress of Club activities and future plans. At the same time, Roger was presented with a cheque for £1,000 for his very worthwhile project with Nankhomo School in Malawi (see photo). 

Cranleigh Rotary Club continues to support international projects as well as local charities.

On 29 June, Cranleigh Rotarians braved the sweltering weather to produce their traditional fare of burgers, hot dogs and bacon rolls for visitors to the village fair. The Rotary barbecue was very successful, with long queues at times. The profits, thought to be about £770, will go towards Rotary charities.

The following day, Rotarians and friends once again assisted at the Cranleigh Show by opening and closing the gate on the horse walk. The volunteers manned the horsewalk from 9 am to 5.30 pm, and also assisted many passers-by with directions to the lost property tent, the awards collection point and even, at one time, to the lost children point!
