10-Pin Success

The Rotary Club of Wellington's first 10 Pin Bowling game of the season was played at Telford on Tuesday 25th November.  The opponents were the Rotary Club of Ironbridge under the captaincy of Tony Roden.

In the first few games there was little between the two clubs but as the match progressed Wellington started to pull away. The final result was Wellington 642, Ironbridge 551.

Scattering to Church Stretton

Rotarian Mike Heath writes:

On a very dark night 13 intrepid members ventured south via that 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' breaking their journey to imbibe at the home of he who speaks so much of it.

We were made most welcome at the Longmynd Hotel by President George and members of the Rotary Club of Church Stretton and enjoyed a most interesting talk from a local GP who said he was proud to work for the NHS and living in Church Stretton. He had no intention of returning to his birth home in South Africa.
