The last couple of weeks have been a busy time for Chatteris Rotarians.
Four members of Chatteris Rotary Club met up with colleagues from March for a sponsored cycle ride around Huntingdon and St Ives in aid of Prostate Cancer.
Following the ride they all got together to enjoy a picnic lunch at Houghton Mill.
The next evening members past and present gathered at the home of Richard and Katherine Childs for the annual ‘handover’, where they celebrated the end of the Rotary year.
The outgoing president Andrew Hay thanked all members for their hard work over the year to make it such a success.

Alex Nooteboom received his chain of office as senior vice president.
After a buffet supper an informal croquet competition was run by Richard. The eventual winners were Tony Landin and Peter Tanner.
Last Tuesday found club members walking around town judging the shop window competition held in conjunction with the Midsummer Festival. The theme for the festival and windows was musicals.
There were some very original designs which resulted in 14 difficult windows to judge. The winner was Elizabeth’s, followed by Tranquility and Ellis Winters. Each will recieve a cheque to be donated to their own nominated charity.
Alex Nooteboom and Peter Tanner also went along to the Chatteris Kingfisher’s Swimming Club’s Tuesday night training session to present a cheque for £250 to club chairman Tim Ablett.
The money is for club expenses and is part of a programme by the Rotary club of Chatteris to support organisations in town in need of financial support.
