Coronation Tea Party

Rotary Bakewell member Rita Hickin joined our teatime meeting on 31st May at the Rutland Arms to tell us about her invitation and visit to King Charles’ Buckingham Palace tea party on 3rd May just before the Coronation. She was invited for her work with The Scout Association for over 40 years. A most entertaining presentation and a great honour for Rita. She is also a volunteer with the National Trust and for many years the lead supporter of RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award) held in Buxton twice a year.

Bakewell Rotary Annual pilgrimage to Carsington Sailing Club

Rotary Bakewell held their meeting on Wednesday 14th June at Carsington Sailing Club – and an opportunity to enjoy the glorious views and the great summer weather. Wednesday is the regular Sailability session for disabled users using their trained instructors with the three specially designed boats supplied by Bakewell Rotary in previous years, and an opportunity for us to see this in action.
