Disability Games is a Winner!

Disability Games is a Winner! Some ten Rotary Clubs in and around London got together to run the Sixth North London Rotary Disability Games on Sunday 15 October 2017 at the Aspire Leisure Centre, next to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, North London. Each Club looked after one of the events which included Table Tennis, 21st Century Curling, Indoor Bowls, Boccia, a Wheelchair Slalom, Deck Quoits, Stick Ball, Darts, Bagatelle and more. The event was well attended, and a great success, and Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals were available for each category in each competition. The Mayor of Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council and the Deputy Mayor of Harrow helped with the presentation of the medals to the winners. Immediate Past District Governor Helen stood in for District Governor Mike Hodge. Our thanks go to Scott Maclachlan and his team for organising this superb event. We are now looking forward to the Seventh Games next year.... | Read more about Disability Games is a Winner! | Added 6 days ago

"Disastrous London" Walk

On Sunday 8th October, Rotarians from across London met at the Barbican Underground Station for a walk through "Disastrous London", a stroll including two famous pubs. Our walk took us through Charterhouse Square (photo above) where we saw a model of the original enormous abbey that existed there, and learned about the lives of four famous Londoners from the Middle Ages. We then moved on to Smithfield Market and learned about the origins of the name, and the martyrs who were put to death there. We also saw where William Wallace was put to death and we saw the effect that the plague had on the churchyard of St Bartholomew (right). Our spell in 14th Century was interrupted by a film crew who were filming close to the old Barts Hospital, where television viewers saw Sherlock Holmes jump from the roof! Our excellent guide then took us to the Cutlers Hall via the Central Criminal Court and the former Newgate Prison which features in Charles Dickens' works, and so we progressed from Ave Maria Lane to Creed Lane and refreshment at the Cockpit pub, once owned by William Shakespeare. Our stroll then continued towards Blackfriars Bridge, and the Blackfriars Pub with its superb hand beaten copper panels - a delightful place at which to end our walk. Our organiser and our guide both received sustained applause for this great walk.... | Read more about "Disastrous London" Walk | Added 2 weeks ago
