First of all we wish every one a Very Happy and Healthy New Year.
A big thank you to all the kind and very generous members of our community who contributed to our Christmas local charity appeal at the Locks Heath Centre especially as the weather was so wet and windy. Your contributions amounted to approximately £1400 which is fantastic considering the appeals from other charities and appeals for aid to disaster funds around that time.
The money raised will be divided and given to local Organisations, Clubs, Care facilities and schools for children with special needs.
Our winter scene display was appreciated by everyone especially the children, it was a joy to see their smiles and excitement for the forthcoming big event.
Rotary is a none secular organisation which was noted by a member of the public looking at our display, and commented, where was the baby Jesus, so the next day she appeared with a small model of the stable and nativity scene, which she placed in the centre of the display, I wasn’t there at the time, so if it was you, thank you very much for your kind contribution which we will include each year.
