Brickhills wins award from Swimathon organisers

lesleyphoto 1aHelen S and I went to the Swimathon presentation last night. The swimathon raised £25,000. It was very touching to see the awards and cheques given out to the various causes. Big pat on the back to The Rotary Club of Milton Keynes.

We were awarded the 'Rotary Interclub Trophy' a small silver cup. I will bring it along to the President's Night so Nigel can announce our collective achievement together.

Well done everyone!

Rotary Annual Gala 2014

RAG 14  014 RAG 14  011

The Rotary Annual Gala event held by all the clubs in the Milton Keynes this year was hosted in the Chrysalis Theatre in Willen. Once again we saw the Court Theater players from Tring perform a Murder Mystery play written by Brickhills Rotary Club member Karen Banfield. The play this year was ‘Murder in the Manse’ set in 1910.

Our guests were invited to dress in costume of the period and many did. Guests ate a 2 course meal served by James Wyatt caterers. Sponsorship was also offered by three local businesses by way of product placement in the play and together with a very successful tombola we raised £1265 for three local charities, Young Carers Milton Keynes, and Buckingham and Leo's appeal in MK Hospital.

Some special guests were present, our District Governor Gavin Plews as can be seen here with a magnificent moustache, our District Governor Elect Jenni Muir and the local Member of Parliament Ian Stewart. All guests seemed to have a great evening, including our special guests even if they are not the greatest detectives, with none of the special guests guessing correctly.

Everyone had a great evening and some guests have booked the places already for next year

Treasure Hunt in Buckingham

buckingham treasureOn a bright but cold Sunday afternoon 20 of us met in Buckingham town centre to follow the Treasure Trail around this lovely old town, seeped in history. 

We followed clues within our 'Spy document' and completed the mission grid and combination box in order to find the deactivation code! 

A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon whilst learning and exercising at the same time!

Jaipur Dinner 2014

This project sponsors limb camps in Asia, Africa and Haiti providing new limbs to thousands of amputees.

A Jaipur limb costs £30 and is helping to give a positive life back to the many who are unable to walk. Thank you Newport Pagnell Rotary club for a well organized event.
