What a fantastic job you all did, I can’t thank you enough. An absolute pleasure to work with all, it did nothing more than enhance the whole event. Please pass on our thanks to your whole Club and I look forward to working with you all again either in The May Fair or other ventures.
Very Best wishes
Last Monday Devizes Rotary were invited along to the Lions May Fayre event to cook a fabulous selection of food including sausage, burgers, chicken, roast potatoes, chilli & pancakes.
All that plus live music, a Punch and Judy display, performances by the Male Majorettes, steam engines, classic cars and a bouncy castles meant that there was something on offer for all the family.
It was a fantastic day and a great pleasure to work with the Devizes Lions team in serving the Devizes community, and in raising much needed funds for some very worthy local causes.

Lavington pupil wins top photographic prize
YOUNG photographer Sophie Vowles took first place in a competition organised by Devizes Rotary Club.
Sophie, who is a pupil at Lavington School, near Devizes took a series of three pictures that looked at everyday scenes from extreme angles and perspectives.
Alison Batchelor from the Rotary Club visited the school to present Sophie with a certificate for coming first in the Rotary Young Photographer competition. She went on to represent the town in a district competition where she received encouraging feedback despite not being placed.
She has had previous success in the Lawrence Society young artist competition and the Wiltshire Museum art contest.
The aim of the competition was to produce a portfolio of up to three photographs based upon the theme ‘A Different Perspective’.
Below are the entries received from each of the competitors. Many congratulations to them all!
