Earlier in June the Rotary Club of Kendal organised their annual ‘Kids Out’ day for Sandgate School. All the school pupils, teachers and helpers are taken to Lakeside and then transported by one of the Windermere steamers along the lake and down to ‘Brockhole’. Here they are provided with a cooked lunch and allowed to play and roam in the grounds before being taken back to school in the afternoon.
This event coincides nicely with the retirement of the existing President and with the inauguration of the new incoming one.
This was done in July and the now Past President Martin Jayne handed over the reins to new President Peter Smith. It was at this event that a ‘Paul Harris Fellowship’, presented for outstanding service to Rotary and the local community, was awarded to Past President David Poole who has served the club faithfully for over 20 years.
