Another new Rotarian on Solihull Club President's night


Solihull Rotary Club celebrated its President's night in real style at Copt Heath Golf Club, albeit not completely as planned. Their planned speaker became stuck in traffic and was unable to make it; however, a number of members more than made up with a competition as to who could relate the funniest anecdote. Member Rev John Bradford celebrated a very big birthday and Dita Sen-Gupta was inducted by President David Bell as the club's newest member, recruited through the highly successful satellite group.

There's a publisher in all of us!


 One of Solihull's newest members, Barry Allaway, who joined through the Satellite Group, educated us all on how to be a publisher, using all the internet has to offer. He has proved so good at this that he has published books himself on the subject: then he branched into children's books, with a little expert guidance from his children. This voyage of discovery awaits all who can go onto the internet. <photo - Steve Evans>

Solihull Rotary hears about the changing role and work of the Children's Society

Roseann Boyse, from the Children's Society

Solihull Rotarians had a very interesting and informative talk from Roseann Boyse, from The Childrens Society. She spoke about the history of the society (almost 150 years old) and its changing role. There may not now be private children’s homes, but there are many new dangers to children,  like sexual exploitation and trafficking to deal with.
