PDG Nigel, Katie & President David, 2nd March

Katie Bussiere is a Rotary scholar sponsored by the Rotary Club of Avon Canton, Connecticut, USA, studying for an MPhil in Education at Cambridge University. She is seeking to specialise in research in second language education especially with respect to provision for immigrants and refugees.
Her counsellor, Past District Governor Nigel Neville (Cambridge Rotary Club), escorted  her.
February 23rd


It's also about the time that our "End Polio Now" crocuses should appear.
  (First seen 1st March).
The speaker at our meeting of February 23rd was Tom Thurston, a local man and Rare Breeds Preservation Society member, whose subject was the
 History of Heavy Horses in GB.

On the 12th January, Vic Starkey of the Rotary Club of Cambridge Sawston drove Global Rotary Scholar Gaelen (see panel to the right) through inclement weather to bring her to give a presentation to the club. Vic presented his club's banner, and we reciprocated.

Gaelen Stanford-Moore received a banner, following her detailed but succinct presentation about her studies and travels in pursuit of degrees in public & world health. Following a 'gap year' MPhil course at Cambridge, Gaelen returns to the University College of Southern California to complete her MD degree course.

5th January 2017

Our first meeting of the year featured Suzanne Rhind, who is the researcher, grant/fund-finder and bid-writer for the Wayland Partnership Development Trust. Through her work many of the functions and community support activities in Watton and the Wayland villages are enabled. Her Presentation was most informative and generated much interest.

 Here starts another webpage in the annals of Watton Rotary's history!

Together with Watton & Wayland Visitor Centre we are pleased to be co-sponsors of the
