The Scarecrow Festival was a great success and raised over £1,500 for Stockport Young Carers. The Tour of Britain cycle race passed right through the centre of Bramhall at the same time!

The winning scarecrows were:

  • Scarecrow with the best wow factor – Walter Raleigh at Riva
  • Scarecrow showing the best workmanship – Frida Kahlo at Cuthberts
  • The most recognisable historical character – Guy Fawkes at Francesco
  • Tableaux and overall festival 2019 winner – Corrys
  • The best from a member of the public was Bramhall Bert
  • The best in Cheadle Hulme was All Saints Church
  • The winners of the ‘Back in Time’ Trail winning a massive Family Goody bag were Ellie with Tilly and her mum Amanda.

Fri 20 Sep – A group on a walk in the sunshine.

Wed 18 September – Charter Night

This night celebrates the birthday of the club in 1986. We had a great time in Romulus restaurant in the centre of Bramhall. 33 years old and going strong!

Sat 14 September – What a day! The Scarecrow festival and the Tour of Britain. Wow!

Wed 11 September – We had a fascinating talk on small scale bee farming. Marian knew her subject well and answered lots and lots of questions from an impressed audience.

Wed 4 September – Committee meetings were held to plan future charitable and social activities. Our District Governor paid us a visit and updated us on the wider world of Rotary.

Sat 31 August – A few of us went to Ed’s hairdressers 4th birthday party at Tre Ciccio. We had a great time at this very lively fund raiser, the proceeds of which were donated to our club. Thank to Ed’s for raising over £1,200. Well done.

Wed 28 August – One of our members gave a “this is me” talk. Sarah told us about her early family life, her education and her very varied and interesting career to date as well as her involvement with Rotary before joining our club.

Fri 23 August – A group of us rambled from Marple to Chadkirk and back via the Marple Aqueduct.

Wed 21 August – Emeritus Professor of Astronomy at Manchester, Ian Morison, gave a fantastic talk on the possibilities of life outside Earth. Of course nobody knows but on balance single cell life is probable, but humans are at least special and maybe unique. Fascinating stuff from a remarkable man.

Wed 14th August – Crown Green Bowling. We had a great time bowling but nobody took a photo! So here we are enjoying a meal at the club house afterwards.

Wed 7th August – Committees. We spent the evening planning programmes for the coming months. In particular the Scarecrow Festival. Immediately before the meeting a group of 10 of us visited Swanbourne Gardens, a respite home for children with complex needs, where we recently provided £2,500 worth of sensory play equipment.
