Lunch at LOng Eaton 24th February

With Gail acting as my driver today we set off to Cleve Lodge at Long Eaton (home of Long Eaton Rotary Club) for the Cherter celebration of the Rotary Club of Melbourne.   Not entirely sure why they hold their Cherter at this venue, but it must suit them as they have been going there for about four years.

Once again this was a charter with very few formalities, but very friendly and most welcoming.    I was invited to speak for a few minutes, an offer which I gladly accepted of course.    The meal and the surroundings here were excellent and the staff were very attentive.

Everyone seems to be enjoying themselves in this photo
Before the meal I managed to raise about $50 for Polio by suggesting that everyone should wear a crocus.  We then had a good old chat round the table over the meal and I have to say we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The next Charter now is not till 5th March at Newark Castle, but on Tuesday and Wednesday this week we have the Young Chef Competition at Kirkby in Ashfield, and the Foundation Grants Seminar on Thursday.
