Brue Valley Party Time

On Saturday 6th January, members and friends of Brue Valley Rotary enjoyed their annual (belated) Xmas Bash at the Catash Inn, North Cadbury.  As usual we were treated to an excellent carvery by John, the landlord, and the occasional balloon was seen to fly across the room.  We were entertained by some, not necessarily harmonic, festive singing from the top table which, as usual, provided the noisy background to the proceedings.  Another very enjoyable social occasion for the club.  Next up, The North Cadbury Wassail, this will be very entertaining.

Bruton and Castle Cary Xmas Events

Brue Valley Rotarians helped to feed the festive throngs of people at the Bruton Christmas Fair and the Castle Cary Big Christmas.


In addition to Bacon Rolls, Beef burgers, Cheese Burgers, Vege Burgers, Bacon and Cheese Burgers ( aka the ‘works’ ) we also sold exotic Christmas items and cuddly toys.

The profit raised from the Bruton Christmas fair was over £360 and the gross takings ( without costs removed ) from the Castle Cary Big Christmas was over £520.

Meet RASCA, (the acronym translates to Rotary All Saints Church Angel). All Saints Church Development Project in Castle Cary  launches shortly with a Festival of Angels. Brue Valley Rotary Club are involved in this important community event.  The Project is very much about taking the best of the past and creating something new for the future. Mike Stokes, Nicky Creed and Roger Weldhen had great fun designing, creating and refining RASCA. This is cutting edge modern art ! Do try to visit All Saints Church to see her and the other 58 angels. The Festival runs from 2 December to 6 January.
