Yes, it’ll soon be October and that means it’s time to tuck into an Alcester & Bidford Rotary Big Breakfast. On Saturday October 5th we’ll be at the Crawford Hall, Bidford and the following Saturday, October 12th we’ll be in Alcester Town Hall. Serving from 9am until 12 noon both days. So come on, treat yourself and if you need an excuse, it’s all for local, national and international good causes.

This morning we were visited by 1060 District Governor Bala Jaspal who told us about her plans for the year. Bala also told us about the Rotary District Conference, her charity for 2019, Heads Up and we discussed plans for World Polio Day which takes place on October 24th. Alcester & Bidford Rotary will be lighting up St Nicholas church again this year to highlight the fact that polio has been 99.9% eradicated worldwide thanks in part to the fundraising efforts of Rotary International.
Rotarians Pauline Lowe and Geoff Powell helped collect for SSAFA the Armed Forces Charity at Ragley Hall in August. Over £67,000 was raised for the charity at the five Battle Proms concerts.
