Down Came The Rain

IMG_6973

Those of us of us who were part of the “Swinging Sixties” might recall Mister Murray’s ghastly rendition of “Down Came The Rain”. Hideous as it was, its title was an appropriate memory of this evening’s Big Christmas at Castle Cary. As ever Brue Valley Rotary were in action serving bacon baps, burgers and “the Works ” to the many visitors. This year “the Works” proved particularly popular ; for the uninitiated it is a juicy burger topped with two bacon rashers and a tasty morsel of cheese. The rain certainly came down – despite that it proved to be business as normal. Special mention must be made to Brue Valley’s soft toys team comprising Angela and Liz who sold many cuddly items and raffled a HUGE teddy bear.  Morale was high notwithstanding the torrential rain, we worked as a well oiled team  and raised useful funds which will benefit local Rotary charities and organisations.

Cheque this out!

The combined backdrop of Sherborne Castle and the November sun provided a perfect setting for yesterday”s Sherborne Classic Cars cheque presentation. Several members of Brue Valley Rotary Club were present to hand over HUGE cheques to some of the many charities benefiting from this year’s Show.  Andrew Davies was in evidence with the HUGE cheques under one arm, the negotiable instruments in a pocket and ensuring the correct cheques went to the right charity representative. After an exhausting morning the seven Brue Valley Rotarians repaired to the Queen’s Arms at Corton Denham.

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.
