Rotary President John Gabris hands cheque to Head Teacher Sara Wakefield, as once again the Rotary Club of Hythe supports a project that enhances the local community.
The Club identified a need for audio-visual presentation equipment at local Palmarsh Primary School. Unfortunately, in the current economic climate, the school did not have access to funding for a permanent projector and screen in the school hall. This was something needed for lessons, daily assembly and entertainment for the entire school.
Six members and partners from Hythe enjoyed sharing an Indian Meal with friends from our contact club at Abbeville. The meal was a organised by Abbeville Rotarian Anton Joseph to raise funds to build a little house in South India. For 25 euros we enjoyed an aperitif, a three course meal with wine at the table, a great atmoshphere and real Rotary Fellowship.
Hythe Rotary Club President Reg Belcourt prepares to serve soup at a frugal lunch organised by the Rotary club to raise funds for Mary’s Meals. Mary’s Meals is an international movement to set up school feeding projects in communities where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education. Thanks to the kind donation of professionally prepared soup from the Hythe Brasserie, and the support of club members and their wives, the Rotary club was able to raise the sum of £500.00 for Mary’s Meals.
About 20 members and families took part in the Clay Pigeon Shoot held at Dover, followed by a Picnic Lunch at Russell Gardens near to Kearsney Abbey.

Seven Rotarians and partners enjoyed meeting our friends from the Rotary Club of Abbeville, and sharing a splendid dinner. Even those of us with minimal French were delighted by the speaker, Pierre Schwinte. He is a most remarkable young man and it was good to be able to share his adventure to the "top of the world"!
The annual Christmas collection for local charities by Hythe Rotary Club members in the High Street proved once again - if any proof is needed - the generosity of members of the public in Hythe . Despite sometime appalling weather conditions people still put money into the collecting boxes as they were passing. The total collection for the eight days before Christmas was £2589 plus £370 making a grand total of £2959. Thank you to everyone for your continuing support and generosity.
Gearge Brown (picture) and other members of Hythe Rotary Club took turns manning collection points in Hythe High Street and at Sainsburys Park Farm, Folkestone.
