Following the  previoius post in January, the Queen Elizabeth School Evolve F1Team came to speak to the Club last night about the World Championship competion which they won last November. It was very clear that they all have put an enormous effort into the design and engineering of the car, the very professional portfolios on the whole project, their Pit Stand, and of course the racing of the car itself.  Very well done to Freddie and Lewis (both pictured) and George.

We have had another successful sale of crocuses for Rotary's Purple for Polio fundraising campaign.  Bought last autumn, 5,000 crocus bulbs were potted and carefully nurtured by Maurice Weaver over the winter before being sold on Faversham market last Saturday. In all we raised £360 which will be matched by the Bill Gates Foundation.  

At the same time we bought an additional 10,000 bulbs which we planted alongside the Recreation Ground; these are now in full bloom.
