The President's Walk

A select group pausing for a photo opportunity En route by the Bolney lake More chips, Vicar?
Club members and wives (and dogs) enjoy a country walk one Sunday morning every month. Here's the advance party at a strategic bridge crossing on 7 April
All the party together for once as they assemble momentarily by the Bolney lake (apart from Paul Harris on camera duty and several elusive dogs)
It's customary after the walk to fall into the nearest pub for drinks, sandwiches and chips (very important after a hard walk)

This is Vocational Rotary: a Visit to Harvey's Brewery in Lewes

I'm going to enjoy this Surveying the mash tun Now for a real sample

The October Vocational Service meeting was held in Harvey's Brewery in Lewes, with a guided tour by Managing Director and Head Brewer Miles Jenner, followed by supper in the John Harvey pub across the road. A successful evening, of that there is no doubt.

District 2002 Conference at Bournemouth

Cameron Sharp to snap next Drinks with the President He's there again, every time

A party of 22 members and wives attended the Conference towards the end of October 2002.
It wasn't just eating and drinking, but you'd never guess from these pictures.
At other times we attended the formal sessions in the Pavilion Theatre,
and some of the ladies gave the Bournemouth shops a going-over.
