Keith Barnard-Jones, an accomplished speaker, gave us an insightful and inspiring talk on the achievements of Rotary in Tanzania over the past decade or so in combating malaria. Deaths have been reduced by 50%. REMIT is the name of the organisation. Rotary provides impregnated netting for use from dusk till dawn to keep Tanzanians safe from the bites of vicious mosquitoes. The talk brought many questions from the floor,which were answered with honesty and authority. Our President, Ian, presented Keith with a cheque for £2000 as our contribution towards the REMIT project and Alan Reeve, our long serving Chairman of the International Committee, gave the vote of thanks. Notices relating to the District Music Competition, The Pride of Somerset Youth Awards, Iron Man, the 50/50 Cycle Ride and a recent visit to Children’s Hospice South West are a reflection of the vibrancy of our club.
