The Rotary Club of Crewkerne thanked last year’s president Peter Lawrence for his dedication and work during 2017/2018 at a dinner held at Cricket St Thomas Golf Club. Peter Lawrence who was indisposed when the new president Stuart Prince was elected in July, has returned to health and was able to attend the club dinner where the chains of office were officially handed over for the 2018/2019 presidential year.
Rotarians are always welcoming to new members and will be busy fundraising for Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance and other local charities at the Dinnington Ride on Sunday August 26th. The annual cross country horse ride starts from a field close to the Dinnington Docks near Hinton St George at 9.30 am, with the last ride out at 11.30 am. The ride is one of the Rotary club’s main events of the year, offering horse riders a 12 mile course across picturesque parkland, farmland and woodland, with a shorter course of six miles also available.
Horse riders must ensure that they have their own public liability insurance in place and riders under 14 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Registration can be made on the day or prior to the event by phoning 01460 75450. The entry fee is £15 per rider. Ample parking for horse boxes and other vehicles is provided, visitors are welcome and refreshments will be available.
