September Duck Race, Book Give Away, new member Loraine, Beach clean/survey

Always a busy month with the White river Duck Race, organised by the Lions who share the profit with us. We will donate them to Dig Deep a ‘water’ charity working in Kenya. The weekend was spent at Lanlivery Rally giving away over 1000 books. At the cheese and wine evening and quiz in Libby & Alan’s cowshed, President Sandra  welcomed Loraine Hoar as a linked member. We took part for the 22nd year in the Marine Conservation Society beach clean & survey, this year it was at Charlestown beach

15 members attended the September Region meeting in Taunton to hear speakers on ‘Safer Families for Children’ and the threat of the Asian Hornet  with Wendy & Kay joining with the other 3 Presidents for a photo that became a SIGBI photo of the month.
