President Rene?

John Morris-Roberts of the Telford Centre Club writes;  "We were privileged to have the President of Wellington Rotary Club at our 'Allo Allo' party at the Wroxeter hotel on the 23 September.  I attach a photo of President Peter and Gill, and they both dressed a up and had FUN, as did the other 107 people attending."

Wrekin Riders BMX visit

 Wrekin Riders BMX received a grant from the Fairbourne fund which enabled the club to have a team building day at a trampoline park with coaching.   Kirsty Smallman explained how important this was to the children invovled as they were able to play with each other instead of competing covered by their helmets.   
Kirsty presented the history of the club and explained that BXC riding is not necessarily for the expert, but is very therapeutic for all ages.    Beginers can start on a special flat track with push along bikes, there are even adult size bikes for the more mature.
