Members visited the Chantry Brewery on 23rd September for a beer tasting and barbecue. The beer tasting was compered by President Steve and we sampled a number of beers from light ales through to stouts. We then enjoyed a barbecue. A big thank you to President Steve and his CAMRA colleagues for organising the event.

Our very own Phil Crutchley, who is slightly deaf in one ear through sitting next to Peter Short at the New York stadium, recently brought back greetings from Geoff Moore at his new club, the Rotary Club of East Mallorca. Geoff is a past-member of our club. The first photo shows Phil on the far right standing next to Geoff.

Great publicity for our supported charity Start-A-Heart. A full page in the Rotherham Advertiser. Wow. Congratulations and well done to Immediate Past President Trish, Carrie, Roger and everyone involved in the charity.

The first gardening session in conjunction with our mother club, Rotherham, took place on Tuesday 24 August. Some good progress was made. Thanks go to John Turner for the offer of the use of a rotavator but in the end it was not needed. Gardening will continue at the Hospice every Tuesday at 4.00pm until the end of October.

Derek Cheetham, one of our long standing members, sadly passed away at 6am on Sunday morning, 5th September, with his wife June and their two daughters Rachel and Sarah by his side. Rest in Peace Derek.
