On Friday 24th February, Rotary Club members and their guests we treated to a brilliant evening of fun, some excellent fish and chips and an array of superb deserts.

Organised by Rotarian Ernie Pooley and the fundraising team, the evening was centred around six humorous short stories told by members of the club, full of fascinating facts but only five of which were actually true. Members and guests were split into teams of six and had to identify the truths.

We heard from Gerry about growing up in County Durham and Northumbria during the 1920 with a little ancient history thrown in.

From Peter about the trials and tribulations of becoming a solicitor in Dorset.

From Bron about the smuggling in Kinson and surrounding area - shiver me timbers!

The Anglo Saxons from Matthew.

Perry spoke about the works of Shakespeare and Marlow.

And finally, Ernie spoke about the world’s longest pier in the country at Southend on Sea and historical goings on in Essex.

It all resulted with the Blue team winning the Easter Egg prizes but the main thing was that everyone had a great evening and went home smiling.

Story tellers - Bron, Peter, Matthew, Perry, Ernie and Gerry (seated)

Our thanks go to the Bournemouth Blind Society who allowed us to hold the event on the Rooper Hall which is the headquarters of the Society which provides amazing support to many people int area who are visually impaired.
