Day one of the classics at the castle, the ‘A’ team were hard at work from well before the show opened parking classic cars with military precision. A long day but lots to do
It was clear today that whilst some were wandering around with tape measures and hammers, others had a real job to do, our tools were wet cloths and a big bucket of water, tasked with cleaning many dirty chairs. Task complete it was time for a well earned break and an ice cream.
On tuesday 4th July Karen & Graham Harris met with Helen Brown from Somerset Trust for Arts and Recreation to hand over a cheque for £1000. The money was raised from 12 weeks of Pilates classes, which were held in North Cadbury village hall. The classes were well attended by local residents and several members of Brue Valley Rotary Club.
STAR is a charity for Somerset children and young people designated as in need. Their aim is to provide opportunities for children and young people to build and develop resilience through taking part in music, sport, art and recreational activities.
By kind permission of Clarks Village, the new Brue Valley gazebo was in action again on Sunday helping to promote the Classics and Supercars at Sherborne Castle show. We also had two classic cars on show, Colin’s MG Midget 1500 and a lovely 1968 Mustang 289 owned by one of the trustees of the show Mark Main. Both cars attracted much attention,
with many photos taken, and provided an opportunity to for Eddy, Chris and Colin D, ably assisted through the day by Jonny, Jenia & Simeon and Colin J, to tell the shoppers all about the show at Sherborne Castle on 15-16 July. We did manage to sell a few tickets, it was surprising though, how many people living locally had not heard about the show before, even after 14 years, and many promised that they would make every effort to attend.

From Chris: Many thanks to Colin and Eddy for organising a very successful day.
On Saturday 1st July, Brue Valley Rotary met at the home of Rotarians Graham and Karen Harris for the Presidential Handover BBQ. The weather was excellent, Eddy had managed to get the new club gazebo up and running and Graham and Karen had their garden looking fantastic. With Andrew Moore at the griddle, burgers and bangers were soon on the go – no bacon! The handover ceremony was short and sweet and as informal as anyone would expect from Brue Valley……….. Jennie Dewsbury, outgoing President had to take to the steps to handover the regalia to new President Mike Stokes, who we wish all the best for the coming year.
A select group from the Rotary Club of Brue Valley attended the presidential handover of the Rotary Club of Langport and Somerton at Haynes International Motor Museum, Sparkford on Thursday 29th July. Mike Gillingham handed over the chain of office to Roger Hampton.
The Rotary Club of Brue Valley would like to wish the Rotary Club of Langport and Somerton all the best for 2017 – 2018.
