Morpeth Rotary Club

One of President Rhona Dunn’s final events in her role was in June when Morpeth Rotary concluded its annual test of the British summer weather by having a barbecue at the home of Michael Duffy, at Hebron.

There were clouds of smoke from the burning sausages, and it was mostly cloudy, but it was sometimes sunny and didn’t rain.

Everyone left full of good local farm produce and £270 was raised for Save the Children.

However, it was a contrast from Rhona’s last event as President, which was on a very rainy day.

Fifteen members and friends visited various sites on the Northern Bypass as guests of Carillion Construction. They were well looked after and everything was explained.

During the year many activities had been supported and enjoyed, including photography, pudding making, indoor sports, golf, attendance at Rotary national and regional events, and visits to Kielder, Berwick and shortly to the Blyth Tall Ships Project.
