Past Events..

We are helping out and supporting Le Marche

 We are helping Le Marche..

As usual we will be helping out at Le Marche on Bank Holiday Monday 27th August. Manning road closures, helping with transport and assisiting where we can.

We look forward to a splendid day, despite the weather! It will be good fun. So make sure you have this event in your diary and see you there..!

Traditionally this day has been linked with French Market traders for the last 21 years

Heathfield Rotary provide support for other events too!

We have assisted at the Heathfield Show, held on the last Saturday in May every year, we provide support for moving gates between events and assisting with car parking, or general stewarding where ever help is needed. 

Ballads & Bollognese

 Up coming Event: Ballades and Bolognese Evening 19th May at Broad Oak Village Hall

The entertainment, under the musical direction of Sue Burnett at the Piano, will be lighthearted fun.

Sue is a former Schools music teacher, the music director for the Rotherfield Players and the conductor for the 100-strong Sing and Tonic Choir in Crowborough .

My guess is that the programme will include some songs from the Shows, but that is all down to our small band of entertainers, who just want us to enjoy a fun evening at the end of a great day. The “Ballades” word just sounded right with “Bolognese”! (It being an International Fund Raising Evening as far as Rotary is concerned).

The meal will be provided by Pink Cabbage Catering in Mayfield: Bolognese Pie followed by a nice sweet course and tea and coffee. Those who came to last year’s Barn Dance in Mayfield will know that Pink Cabbage Catering do a very nice meal. NB. It won’t be Spaghetti Bolognese, as the average Rotarian will make an awful mess trying to eat it!

There will be a Bar and a Raffle. Already the entertainers have reserved 16 tickets.  There will be a vegetarian option ( to be pre booked). As to the proceeds from the evening, those will be split 50/50 between our Charity Account (quite possibly Sanergy) and the Rotherfield Church restoration fund. The entertainers are not charging for their time.

All this for only £16 per head

  

19th October Richard Karn Chairman of the Govenors Heathfield College

President John presented Our Cheque for £1000 to support the sports awards which will be held on the 8th November

Richard apologised for the Head Teachers inability to attend the meeting due to work commitments but conveyed her thanks for the support that the Club gives the College. Richard updated us on events since the last presentation to the club.

The college has pupils from 11 to 18 -1450 in total and is a high achieving College with a performing Arts heritage. It has a gold Arts Mark,is an investor in careers, has achieved

 Eco School Status and is an Apple accredited ”Digital Genius Leader”

As its purpose the College means to Look ,feel and behave like the best school in the country so that our students get a better deal at Heathfield Community College than they would at any other School.

 The Governors and staff set out to achieve this by encouraging the pupils to have pride ( they are all accountable for their responsibilities and are engaged and enthusiastic) Ambition ( no limit to what they can achieve with the right mind-set and focussed hard work and as individuals are ambitious, confident but determined and reflective) and a sense of Community underpinned by good communication (each individual is unique and matters, Positive relationships underpinned by clear communication delivered with consideration, compassion, honesty and integrity. These goals have lead to improvements recognised by the Inspectorate

These are ambitious targets but have lead to significantly improved standards of achievement Ofsted 2016. Teachers have high expectations and use their good subject knowledge to design stimulating lessons Ofstead 2016

Pupils feel that staff care for them and understand their needs—pupils and sixth formers enthused about their school Ofstead 2016.

The pupils are offered a wide range of activities outside the classroom involving a wide choice covering music, drama, sport, computing, fitness, Karaoke Seven sister Geography trip, exchange visits to Germany study trips to France and Germany and much more.

The College has a history of Excellence in the performing Arts and a great track record in Sport - Joe Marler (Rugby for England) Heather Over (Badminton Olympian and Commonwealth silver medallist ) and Peter Gregory professional footballer.

In the academic area the A level results in 2017 were in the top 10% nationally and the GCE results are significantly above the national average.

We as a Club can be proud to have such a high achieving College in our area and one well deserving of the support we have given them in the past and will continue to do so in the future.

New Life

Our second Newlife Charity sale took place at the Heathfield Community Centre on the evening of December 1st.

Newlife is a disabled children’s charity that provides help and support as well as funding pioneering work to improve child health, treatment and the knowledge to prevent disability.

Several children in East Sussex have benefitted from their support.

One of their main ways of raising funds is working with local organisations, such as Rotary, to manage clothes sales. The clothes are mainly new and either given by large national stores or by designers. Our sale not only included a wide range of garments but also shoes, handbags, jewellery and accessories.

Rotary’s share of the event arises from ticket sales and we managed to raise over £600, after expenses, for our charities.

For their part, Newlife sales team raised over £2,600.

Richard Ridley, who lead the organisation of this event as Chairman of the fundraising Committee, thanks all those members and their wives who helped organise, run and buy during the evening.

Special thanks to Mark Garnett, who is the originator of the event coming to Heathfield in the first place. Also thanks to all those who helped out with the bar and clearing up after the event.

Disabled children have been at the heart of the Newlife charity since 1991. Since that time they have become, the specialists for special children. Their needs and the needs of their families and carers, their health and their voices are all central to the work of the charity. Thankfully more babies and children survive conditions, accidents, infections and cancers, we see more children live through these experiences. – To find out more about Newlife Charity click here
