New Year's Message

Guest Speaker Rev. David Luckman in a well-received frequently witty address gave the New Year’s Message and reflected on his involvement with the charity Crosslinks - a missionary society whose main goal is to enable Churches and Christians to bring the good news of Jesus to the world.

2 Days Left!

Don't miss out! Only 2 days are now left to write a message of remembrance to be attached to the Rotary Tree of Remembrance in Lanyon Place Railway Station entrance. This can be in recognition and memory of departed loved ones; those living abroad, who cannot be with you over the Christmas period, family or friends in hospital or ill at home or, for any other reason, to remember someone at this time of the year. All donations will go directly to this year’s nominated charities - NI Children’s Hospice, ShelterBox, Mitchell House School and Glebe House.

Bag Packing Christmas 2018

Dementia NI give a huge thank you to Tim Browne, PPs Bryan Johnston and Derek Baxter for supporting their Christmas Bag Pack and helping attend to all Tesco Newtownbreda customers shopping needs Monday 17 December.

Christmas Party 2018

This year's Mitchell House Christmas Party on Friday 14 December was another resounding success, enjoyed by the children, staff and, not least, by the Club members who attended President Mark, PP David Boyd, PP Maurice Brooks, William Cross, PP Brian Ferguson, John McCleery and former member PP Ken Morrison. The enthusiasm is always contagious and Magic George was his usual hilarious self. Having had drinks and snacks Santa (who again bore a remarkable resemblance to former member PP Courtenay Thompson….) distributed the ("just what they want"!) presents with a kind word for each and every child. As always, it was…
