The meeting at Hillview was a great success and should be repeated a no of times over the year and will always be a slot for Easter Thursday as it helps our neighbours Athe Potters. A good speaker at Hillview in the summer would be positive for membership .In discussion with Geoff Taylor it was agreed that a brochure that outlined the various models of BBQ shelters would be good to expand this successful activity. I was pleased at the response from the visitors to the meeting about the sky Hydrant . We need to consider that there may be many non Rotarians Happy to help promote.


Below is a very impressive report from a neighbouring club . Worth a read and it shows the level of planning they do. I know that this is not our way of doing things but some ideas from them could be useful.

Last meeting at Hillview Reserve was friendly and relaxing. Thanks to the chefs it was also fulfilling.


Last Sunday I was woken up as usual my alarm radio tuned to Radio National. Each Sunday morning there is a very thought provoking segment titled “Ockams Razor”. This 10 minute session is given over to a notable local scientist or technologist and who talks passionately about this professional experience. This week the subject was one of my own passionate concerns. And one that we all moan about but do precious little about. In fact most of us contribute to his world wide problem.
