Magic at Solihull Rotary Club

Elizabeth gives a hand!

5th September was an evening at Berkswell reading rooms with Inner Wheel when the club was entertained by the British `Magical Society, with five "close up" magicians, two cabaret performers and business manager. As the photos show, members were good sports, but they had to be! 

DG Bryan - tell others about the good work of Rotary

D G Bryan visited Solihull Club this week and described how the Rotary motto for this year - "Engage Rotary..Change Lives" was so relevant for him as a young man. Whilst he was at work as an architect in his office, he had no idea that his boss was a Rotarian, involved in the great work that Rotary does. WE need to get that message out - Tell others... ask others to join in. A simple task, you would think, but how many times do we lose an opportunity to spread the word?



Education for Bangladesh at the Azad Choudhury Academy

Examining the seamstress kit at Azad Choudhury Academy

One of our Rotarians, Monika Badham, has had a long association with the Azad Choudhury Academy in Bangladesh. Monika and Barry Badham recently visited the Academy to find out how it was progressing. Read Monika’s personal account of the adventures and how well things are going at the Academy.

“Our visits to Bangladesh are always exiting; this was just a little more exciting than usual, including having to take a detour due to a murder and having a lift from an ambulance to the airport to get home, but more of that later.

"Your most difficult client is actually your teacher!"


 Tina Swani, the daughter of one of our members was a "stand in" for another speaker, but I think was recognised by us all as being truly inspirational. She is Chief Executive of St Mary's Hospice in Handsworth,  a director of a housing association and an honorary senior lecturer at a medical school.
