The 60's Rock & Roll night at Jackie's Upper House Farm was a great evening with live music provided by local band Ronnie and The Reverbs. The band played a selection of classic R&R from the 50's and early 60's. A few intrepid dancers took to the improvised dance floor.

Despite a wet evening it was well attended we all had a good time and enjoyed a fish&chip supper. The event raised over £400 for local Rotary charities and Wellington church.

The Club had our regular stand at the Herefordshire Country Fair, this year at the King George V Playing Fields. The stand was set up by Peter and John and we were then joined by Dick B for the rest of the day with Chris and Christine giving us a break at lunch time.

 

The weather was fair despite the forecast but the turnout appeared to be lower than last year. This meant that our takings were about £100 down on last year but we still managed to raise £232 for Rotary Foundation
