A group of 9 members of Colwall Rotary Club paid a visit to Berlin last weekend.

Colwall Rotary visit BerlinOne of the objects of Rotary is to Promote International Understanding & Goodwill through visits, exchanges and other means.

During this visit we met with a local club - The Rotary Club of Berlin Unter den Linden, where we were made extrememly welcome; to such an extent that they held the meeting totaly in English! I think that we would struggle to return the compliment.

Featuring amongst other acivities a cycle ride through the city centre on Sunday morning and a visit the to DDR Museum all the group achieved a greater understanding of what the city has been through. The general feeling was that this was a place to go back to.

People think that Rotarians are "old people" so what better than to show it by going back in time !

The Severn Valley  Railway regularly hosts 1940s weekends and this year members of Colwall Rotary Club attended, and did so in style by wearing period costume. As  the planned train journey from Malvern to Kidderminster was replaced by a Bus Service due to engineering works, we gave a lot of people something to smile about.

This event gets a high profile in Kidderminster and the venue was packed. Our train left at noon and part of the ride was taken up with Sunday Lunch. Afterwards the train progressed up the line past various stations, all of which were themed for the weekend. The was much live music at many stations and the quality of the music was top class.

Many thanks to Rotarian Nick Paul for organising this enjoyable...

The club went away for a holiday over the last weekend in March.

A large number of club members and spouses went to Dartmouth where some played Golf, others did the local sites and sampled the shopping.

Friday night was "dining where you pleased", with a dinner in the hotel on the Saturday.

The feature trip was a boat trip up river to Greenway, the house that had been owned by Agatha Christie.

Eight members of Colwall Rotary Club recently made a trip to Strasbourg to visit the Rotary Club of Strasbourg Europe and the European Parliament.

The trip commenced at 6am on Saturday 19th April at Great Malvern Station as the trip was made by rail all the way as the Rotarians were keen to experience the ups and downs of making such a long trip in the most green manner. Changes in London (for the Eurostar) and Paris (to complete the trip on the new TGV Est line) resulted in the group arriving in Strasbourg at 4:45pm local time.
