The President, Eric Whittaker, Nashat Kotani and John Goodridge presented a cheque to Helen Piper, Eleanor and Louise’s mother to help with their support expenses. The young ladies demonstrated their considerable archery skills to us, the skills which they put to good effect at the European Youth Cup in Croatia where the GBR Mixed Team topped the medal table with Louisa winning a Gold Medal as well as a Bronze. Eleanor, in her under 21 debut did well enough to earn her place in the GBR Woman’s Junior Team.
Unfortunately, the Woking Archery Club field, on which the young ladies practice, may no longer be available due to the fact that the lease on the field will not be renewed in November after some 30 years. This will leave these young ladies with nowhere close to home to practice. Therefore it would seem a very honourable thing to do to try to find a field to replace it. They will need a minimum of 200 yards by 100 yards, more if available. Does anyone have any ideas?
Woking Rotary Club held their Annual Kids Day providing a special morning of entertainment for children with special needs. During their visit to the Woking Miniature Railway at Knaphill the youngsters enjoyed over 600 trips on the tiny steam and diesel locomotives as well as a bouncing Castle, face-painting and balloon modelling sessions.
The 250 children and 200 helpers who attended the Rotary Club of Woking event also tucked into ice cream and a tasty barbecue during their visit to the Barrs Lane site on Thursday.
Woking Rotary Club would like to thank all the helpers and members of Mizens Railway for their time and support which this event relies upon.
