Chesterfield Rotary president Ian Gaunt with founder members of the new satellite club.
History has been made with the largest expansion of Rotary in Chesterfield for 36 years with the setting up of a new satellite club by the Rotary Club of Chesterfield. The first ten founder members of the newly formed Rotary Satellite Club of Chesterfield (Central) were inducted into Rotary International by Chesterfield Rotary president Ian Gaunt at the club’s monthly meeting held at Brampton Manor, Chesterfield, on Wed 25 May 2016.. A further four founder members are to be inducted next month.
District 1220 Governor Dr Roger Summers, along with DG Elect Colin Gell, District Secretary Dr Jill Bethell, MBE., District Membership Services & Extension Chairman Colin Fox, and members of the Chesterfield club, were also in attendance to welcome the new Rotarians into the worldwide movement of Rotary International and wish the new club well.
The last significant expansion of Rotary in Chesterfield was in 1980 when the Chesterfield Rotary Club was instrumental in setting up the Rotary Club of Chesterfield Scarsdale. The new satellite club aims to be a new way of doing Rotary for busy younger business people from all walks of life who want to use their expertise to help their local community, and have fun doing it.

Keyworth and Ruddington Inner Wheel are hosting an Evening with Anne Boleyn at Widmerpool Church on Friday 20th May – doors open at 7pm with a ;prompt start at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at £12.50. each and this will include a light supper and a glass of wine.
Anne Boleyn is portrayed by Lesley Smith from Tutbury Castle. I am sure that many of you will have seen her in her roles as Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots and Nell Gwynne.
Lesley portrays Anne just before her execution when she is in the Tower, looking back over her life from her young years at Hever Castle and eventually her relationship and marriage to Henry VIII and then her downfall. It will be a very powerful but wonderful performance in a beautiful Church in the lovely village of Widmerpool.

Music In The Gardens, started as a small idea organised by the Rotary Club of Sheffield which was to put on a small, live music concert in the Botanical Gardens to raise funds for local charities. Originally, Jazz in the Gardens was a one day, low key event. Since then, driven by customer demand (and certain economies of scale), Music in the Gardens has grown into an event recognised not only within Sheffield but now nationally as a special series of music concerts in the entertainments calendar.
So what is special about Music in the Gardens? It is four evenings of music featuring world recognised top artists at realistic prices. It is an evening picnic in beautiful surroundings. Bring a chair or blanket and sit in the lazy evening sunshine and soak up fabulous music whilst enjoying a picnic, a plate of something hot from our high quality food stalls, a good honest pint of real ale from Bradfield Brewery or a glass of something fruity in the company of people with whom you can unwind. It is a music festival for those people who do not fancy the idea of attending a music festival!
Music in the Gardens is now in it’s 12th year and is organised by the combined efforts of Rotary Clubs from South Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire. The event is designed to be a major event on the social calendar and be a major community event and fundraiser for various local Charities.
Each charity is also responsible for organising a bucket collection during the interval, to help boost its income. So please, bring lots of loose change – the folding type would be good! Each evening, in addition to having a great time, you will be making a major difference. Because of the help we receive in hosting the event, The Botanical Gardens Trust also gets a donation which goes towards the Gardens development.
To date, Music in the Gardens has raised more than £220,000 for local, national and international charities and projects.
