200 people had a great time at the Ultimate Quiz Party at Magna on Friday 19th May. The event was sponsored by G E Foers Funeral Directors and Rotherham Sitwell Rotary Club.
Together we raised over £7,000 pounds for local charity Start A Heart 24/7, despite not knowing the answers to some of the questions. We enjoyed stand up bingo, true/ false, lots of silly dancing,

A trip to Llangollen was enjoyed by members of Rotherham Sitwell earlier this month. Just a short break of three days but there was plenty to enjoy, walking, canal boat trips over the aquaduct and a Victorian Weekend at the Llangollen Railway. Unfortunately the golfers were rained off on the Friday but the weather soon brightened up for the remainder of the weekend.

President Ann bowls them over!

Last week some members and guests went ten pin bowling at Rotherham Superbowl. (I have still got the aches and pains). There were some good scores and some not so good so to save any embarrassment I am not going to publish the scores. We all had an enjoyable evening and I took a few photos to compare bowling techniques, none of which seem to come from any recognised coaching manual.

At the last club meeting Alison Thorp of Voluntary Action Rotherham (VAR) gave a very interesting talk on the work of the Charity.
