MORE SUCCESS FOR THE CLUB IN THE DISTRICT YOUNG WRITER COMPETITION

 

Preident Glynn Osborne presents the District 1070 Young Writer Shield to Kitty Crane of Crosshall Junior School who was successful in winning this year’s competition.

This is the second consecutive year that a pupil from Crosshall juniors sponsored by our Rotary Club has been successful in winning the District competition.

The Judges all praised Kitty for her imaginative writing on the theme of ‘Reflections’.

Kitty’s piece will now go forward to the National Young Writer competition in RIBI.

PRESIDENT VIJAY RELIVES HIS CHILDHOOD

The Club recently presented a cheque to the Riverside Miniature Railway at St Neots Riverside Park to sponsor a new engine christened “Spirit of Rotary” which can be seen in the picture with President Vijay at the controls.

The Club has sponsored this project with donations of just over £2500 including a District matching grant as it believes the railway will provide a great amenity for the younger generation in St Neots and bring many visitors to the Riverside Park once it reaches its maximum planned length of 600 metres in the next couple of years.
