Julie Ryan of Capel Manor has taken delivery of a Wheelchair Swing for the Capel
Manor Play Area. Donated
by the Edmonton Club from the proceeds of the Enfield Choir Proms, it is wonderful
to see that the money has been put to such good use. It is hoped to organise an event
there in the near future, so that we can see the swing in action.
Club assists with refurbishing school in Cochin, India
From the inspiration of our previous ambassadorial scholar Reva Datar, the Rotary
Club of Edmonton with local and US clubs has provided funds for the refurbishment
and fitting out of a 300 year-old school in Cochin, India. Reva requested funds for
this project from Rotary and the club was very pleased to be able to support her
in this wonderful project.
Rotarian Chandu Patel receives Paul Harris Citation
At the club’s Christmas Lunch, President Mohamed was very pleased to award to Chandu
Patel a Paul Harris Citation for his consistent hard work for the club, his enormous
contribution to Rotary and his voluntary work in the community. An extremely well-deserved
Capel Manor Choir Proms.
A great turn-out and an enjoyable and successful evening's entertainment!
President Bill Simpson was recently installed by IPP Mohamed as President of the
Rotary Club of Edmonton for the Rotary year 2014 - 2015. Best wishes to President
Bill for the coming year.
It is with deep regret that the club has to report the recent passing away of Rotarian
David Fuller. David had been a member of the Edmonton club since 1969 and over that
time contributed enormously to its success.
A gentleman in all ways, he was consistently good-natured, friendly, wise, helpful
and hard-working. For many years he, almost on his own, organised the yearly Kids
Out trips to Paradise Wildlife Park. Respected and liked by everyone, he will be
a great loss. Our deepest sympathies go to his wife Margaret, family and friends.
Teddy Bear’s Picnic
A last minute request arrived from Nightingale Hospice Trust arrived asking if
would we would organise the egg and spoon, and sack, races for their Teddy Bears
Picnic, at Capel Manor. Sean, Chandu, and Pat duly arrived, and assisted by a Robin
Hood character, we proceeded to have a great day. Children were grouped by age, parents
urge to join in, and fathers made to run backwards, just to keep things even. Grandmothers
were impressed to note the eggs we use are real. Nightingale HospiceTrust put on
an excellent event, and we remain delighted to assist.
The Rotary Club of Edmonton would like to wish all visitors to our website
A Very Happy Christmas and New Year

This was Derek’s second Garden Party Rotarians from three different clubs lots of
friends and family of Derek and supportersin aid of three brilliant charities, Mesothelioma
UK, The Isobel Hospice and Kid’s Out,. Music was provided by Derek’s nephewAndrew
Recently at the Club we were delighted to see the return of Neha Patel, to give a
report, with pictures of her trip to Malaysia, organised through her school.Whilst
the trip included white water rafting (where they spied a cobra in the water), washing
elephants, the real purpose was to offer help in a home for disabled children, a
great many of them orphaned, or left by parents unable to cope. The children were
of assorted ages, and had assorted problems, as there is no provision through the
country, other than charity. They offered help with feeding and entertainment. Although
quite a daunting task, it was met by the visiting team.
Neha was our youngest speaker, and we had the privilege of hearing her again, when
she spoke at Enfield Chase Club. Young Neha bravely faced assorted questions, both
about the trip and herself.
