It all went up in smoke…

On Saturday, 3 November 2018, Madam President, Melanie and Andrew M provided additional manpower to our mother club to man the pay-lines at the Shepton Mallet Bonfire and Firework display.

A wonderful edifice had been built at the football club which some hi-vized hooligans then set fire to, before a twenty minute firework display commenced.

We did better than the Punters!

Some of those in know in betting circles favour a sensible approach and  choose an each way stake; others, sometimes rashly, throw caution to the wind and go for the win. The Brue Valley contingent at Wincanton Racecourse yesterday were clearly in a cautious mood prior to assuming their post race bucket collection duties. Only modest each way stakes were placed on a few races – unsurprisingly there were no winners !! The afternoon’s real winners were the various Rotary Charities for whom we were collecting. They’ll benefit to the tune of £485.92 . Feedback from the punters indicated the bookies had done rather well – we felt we’d had a pretty good afternoon too.  Huge thanks to all involved – special thanks to Debs who turned out to help us.

Blown Away at Castle Cary


The outlook for Saturday’s Carnival at Castle Cary was grim with heavy rain and strong winds being on the menu. Mercifully the promised precipitation failed to materialise and Brue Valley’s Bucket Collectors were left to cope with the not insubstantial wind (of the meteorological nature). Our small but experienced Rotary team comprising, Anne W, Melanie, Mike K, Paul and Philippa Creed plus Roger W efficiently dealt with the collection process. Some double bucket technique was in evidence as was the reduced spectator numbers. The enthusiasm of the participants and the quality of the enormous illuminated carts blew us away. Special thanks to Anne, Philippa, and Paul for helping us
