committee said: “Despite the additional costs of putting in place road closures this year, compounded by the dreadful weather, we still hope to have raised over £5,000 for the Ascot District Day Centre, which is wonderful and we thank all the competitors very much for making this possible.” The organisers are also very grateful to


the crowds who braved the elements to cheer on the racers. Afterwards, the race organisers, competitors and spectators adjourned to the Carpenters Arms where the winners were presented with their trophies and the grand raffle draw took place.

Phillip goes through Fourteen year old Phillip Ransome from Ferndown Upper School has won through to the next round of the RIBI Young Chef competition. A menu of salmon rillettes followed


by pork chops with apple tart topping followed by lemon posset with raspberry salad and shortbread was enough to secure Phillip’s place in the next stage of the competition. Finbar Macmillan Caball and Hope


Simmons took the second and third slots in the fiercely contested local heat, with the three top places being awarded Amazon vouchers for £20, £15 and £10 respectively.

Opportunities for youngsters Each year, Glenleigh Park Primary Academy in Bexhill arranges for pupils aged 10 and 11 years old to spend time away at an activity centre to help with their confidence building and social skills. Unfortunately, there are some parents who are unable to afford the full cost for their children to attend the five day course, so the school appealed to the club for help. Bexhill Rotarians rose to the challenge


and Naz Manji, John Raeburn and Roger Batey went along to the academy to present a cheque for £268 to Deputy Headteacher, Debbie Redman, who said: “We are really grateful to the Rotary Club of Bexhill for this generous donation. The

year six pupils learn so much by going away for a few days and many of them have never been away from home before. The cost of the five day course is £268 per head but we have decided to split this donation between two children so that two sets of hard pressed parents will only have to pay half the cost for each child.” Glenleigh Park will be taking the


pupils to Windmill Hill Place, a Grade II listed mansion house set in 21 acres of Sussex countryside, which is run by PGL, a company which has a number of activity centres all over the country from Perthshire to the Isle of Wight. The wide range of activities at Windmill Hill includes a giant swing, abseiling, trapeze, high and low ropes, zip wire, climbing, heated outdoor swimming pool and lots more to
