Young Rotarians take a bow

Posted on 27th March 2012 | in Clubs + Societies , Community , What's On , Young People’s Activities

Rotarians Fred Calvert and John Young gave an illustrated talk on Rotary to the Thursday Club, at Trinity Methodist Church. Other recent club activities have included a Burns Supper, carpet bowls evening and a talk given by Padre Paul Rennie from RAF Boulmer on his recent tour of duty in Afghanistan.

We have now launched the new Interact Club of Coquet. Interact is the junior branch of Rotary and the club’s first President is Elise Anderson (15), a pupil of  James Calvert Spence College.

Interact is open to young people aged 13 – 18 and will meet fortnightly at St Cuthbert’s Parish Hall in Amble.
Each Interact Club is encouraged to perform at least two service projects a year, one that benefits the community and one that furthers international understanding. Sixteen young people from our area have joined.

Rotary’s President David Bell said: “The Rotary Club of Amble and Warkworth is proud to sponsor the Interact Club. We hope that these young people will be the Rotarians of the future.

We are most grateful to the James Calvert Spence College and Angela Manktelow, Coquet Youth Team Leader for the help we have received in setting up this new club. For further information please email
Dates for your diary: April 7th: Bag Pack in aid of international charities at Sainsbury’s in Alnwick.   June 3rd Garden Party at The Friary, Alnmouth.
