This week saw some of the club members and a couple of guests pop along to a local pub quiz to pit our wits against the quizzing experts of Carling  (apparently they make beer too).   We arrived somewhat mob-handed for quiz teams of 4, so we split into two rival groups and the mental gymnastics commenced.

Despite a lack of footballing or soap-opera knowledge (apparently Billy the Fish doesn’t play for Spurs), we ended up doing pretty well, getting first and second place.  Perhaps now we’re Rotarians rather than Rotaractors our streak of pitiful performances at Rotary quizzes will be at an end!

Congratulations to Wendy, John and Rachel, the winning team and Alan, Robert and Mark who came in second and now know never to trust Mark if he says he knows anything about horse-racing…

Satellite_18th_May_2015 On Monday 18th May we were made very welcome as new satellite members of the Deben Rotary Club. Deben Rotary President Dudley Deas inducted the new members at a ceremony at Ufford Park Hotel. Dudley said, “The new satellite club is exactly what it says on the tin”: it will be part of the Deben Rotary club, the new members will be able to take part in the privileges and responsibilities of the wide-ranging activities of the twenty-five year old Rotary Club, but the new Satellite Club will meet at separate times and venues – in a “separate orbit”, so to speak. It will be attractive to young professionals who wish to contribute to their local community and have some fun.”
He continued, “I am sure these new young members will contribute immensely to our successful charitable and fundraising work. Their skills base is different to our present club’s so naturally they will bring an added dimension to our club”.

We’re looking forward to bringing our own vision of the Rotary ideals to Deben and running many successful events in the future, both seperately and in conjunction with Deben Rotary.
