Members of the Rotary Club of Hayle turned out in force to support other organisations at the Hayle Celebration Day on King George V Memorial Walk

last weekend with erection of stalls and stage as well as raising charitable funds for their own projects with their usual quality barbecue offerings.  The members would like to thank all those who supported the club with interest in their activities and purchases which enabled a worthy sum to be raised and consequently a suitable donation to be presented to the event organisation. 

The club met on July 4 to thank President David Gregg for his very active and productive year in office and present him with his Past Presidents Award. David responded by thanking members for their hard working support and enjoyment throughout the year before handing over the Chain of Office to Rotarian Brian Hattam who has already set out a challenging programme of fellowship, fun and charitable projects for the coming year.  The club start with a series of barbecues at Calloose Caravan and Camping site at Leedstown interspersed with a group theatre visit and meal at Truro for members and friends during the next month.
