Cat Connelly and Darren Smith with some of their members meet the Reigate Rotarians

As part of the Reigate Rotary Club’s program for the support of local youth projects, the club presented three Lynx Tablet computers to the Sovereign Youth Club in their Slipshatch Road, Woodhatch headquarters last week.
The tablets will be used by the members of the ‘ Drop in Club ‘ under the instruction of their youth leaders both for education and amusement purposes. The youth club is funded by Surrey County Council but these funds only go so far. Reigate Rotary Club chose the computers from a ‘wish list’ of items which the budget would not stretch to.
The Sovereign club holds sessions for 10-13 year olds on Wednesdays 6.30-8.30pm and on Thursdays for 14-19 year olds. The sessions include sports, crafts, cooking, games and a lot more. The youth club in Woodhatch was founded in 1669 providing leisure activities for the local area and has gone a long way to keep up with the demands of 21st century young people with some help from the Rotary Club and other sponsors.


The Rotary Club of Reigate School Butterfly Competition

The Rotary Club of Reigate is delighted with the results of a competition they organized in which local primary schools were invited to raise Painted Lady butterflies from caterpillars provided by the Club, and to release them into a garden which the children had previously prepared, sown with seed kindly donated by Priory Farm Nursery at Nutfield. Three schools took up the challenge – Merstham Primary, St John’s Primary and Sandcross School – and on Monday 20th July they were judged by Ben Fox and Sarah Long from Priory Farm Nursery and Rotary Vice President John Elgee. At St. John’s School, where Rotakids – a junior branch of Rotary – played a significant role, and at Sandcross School and Merstham School pupils had both the pleasure of creating a colourful recyclable garden, and the fascination of watching caterpillars turn into chrysalises and finally emerge as butterflies. Much time and effort was also spent by the children in recording in written and illustrative form the progress of both the plants and the insects’ development. The participating schools were all commended by the judges, but after due consideration Merstham Primary School was declared the winner.
Club members should be very grateful to Rotarian Jane Cooper who introduced the idea of the competition and worked assiduously in its organization.
