The second Rotary Wine and Food Festival was a huge success, with a steady stream of buyers working their way round the wine producers both local and national from the Association of Small Direct Wine Merchants.

The Festival, on Saturday September 17, was organised by the Rotary Club of Buckingham, with catering by the ladies of Buckingham Inner Wheel Club and a brisk sale of their ‘cream teas in a bag’.

The event raised over £300 for local Rotary charities.

At the same time, Buckingham Rotary had a stand at the National Audio Show at Whittlebury Hall, selling vinyl records kindly donated by the public.

This raised over £300 for Mary’s Meals, which enables more than a million school meals to be produced daily for the poorest children in the world.

President Peter Bartlett said: “A big thank you to everyone who took part at both events.

“They were great examples of Rotary having fun and putting on events that people enjoy, and they helped charities both locally and internationally.

“If this sounds like something you would like to get involved with, get in touch with us.” So a good weekend for Rotary.
