The Rotary Club of Sleaford Kesteven had a very successful afternoon and evening at the recent East Kirkby Fireworks event. As well as our ‘Bottle Tombola’ stand we sold fresh brussel sprouts and spiced fruit punch (which went down particularly well as the evening got quite chilly). We also escorted Father Christmas to the event on his sleigh and he was able to greet both children and adults alike.

The Rotary Club of Sleaford Kesteven recently hosted representatives from Carres Grammar School, St George’s Academy and Kesteven and Sleaford High School (KSHS). Now an annual event, the evening is an opportunity to liaise with the schools about future combined projects including: ‘Youth Speaks’ the ‘Technology Tournament’ and the annual ‘Children of Courage’ Awards. Included in the evening was a talk by Charlotte Gibbs of the KSHS who has been the Interact President at the school and has done an excellent job during the pandemic. The school representative are pictured with members of the Club’s Youth section.
The Rotary Club of Sleaford Kesteven recently said goodbye to one of its more prominent members, Mike Yarram, who has moved to the Peterborough area.
Mike has been a very active member of the Club – in particular with the Youth section – and in honour of this and his other efforts, President Tony presented him with a Paul Harris Award for his work in Rotary. Mike will be missed but we hope that he will come back to visit us in the future.
