Rotary Club Lunch


This afternoon Jack and Alfie from Kirkcolm and Hamish and Faye from Leswalt were chosen to represent our partnership and attend the traditional Rotary Club lunch at the North West Castle. 

After their jaunt into town on the bus they arrived at the NWC and took their seats. They were lucky enough to be seated  with the lovely and very funny Tom Mitchell, the former bank manager of Clydesdale Bank. The theme of this year’s meeting was ‘The Life and Word of Robert Burns’ so  thankfully our troops arrived armed with plenty of knowledge already after last week’s celebrations. They listened to the presentation before finishing off with some Burns poetry. 

Afterwards they enjoyed some soup followed by fish and chips and had an intergenerational discussion, aka a good old natter with Mr Mitchell who was telling the boys tales of when he was at school and class sizes being as big as 40/50 pupils and punishments for spilling ink on your paper was the belt – the boys thought this made even Mrs Morrison seem like a big softie in comparison haha! 

A huge thankyou to the Rotary club for such a wonderful experience , the North West Castle staff for their hospitality and Tom Mitchell for his top class banter and interesting stories 🙂
