Below is a note from Devizes Rotary’s new President, Alan Martin, regarding a presentation last month about the Caenhill Countryside Centre.
Devizes Rotarians were joined by friends for a presentation by Chris Franklin who, together with his wife Hellie manage and run the not for profit Caenhill Countryside Centre. Its seventy acres are host to local primary and secondary school children who benefit from their time spent at the centre’s working farm, where they gain an insight into the countryside in general, while learning about animal husbandry.
Also benefiting from spending time at the centre are vulnerable children and adults. The refreshing, calm atmosphere of being ‘down on the farm’ has a proven dramatic effect on their well being.
Devizes Rotary is grateful to Chris for giving us his presentation, which he illustrated with magnificent photographs depicting the Caenhill Countryside Centre from its conception to the present day.
The Twinning Weekend with the Rotary Clubs of Geldermalsen and Mayenne took place as planned in Geldermalsen from Friday 19th to Sunday 21st May.
