Pakefield Wives' Group - April 15 saw the return of Vince Meadows, this time with his Rotarian hat on, talking about Sailing with the Disabled. In the summer, volunteers meet to sail with or supervise loan sailors on Oulton Broad. Within less than three years of this project being put forward, it was up and running after tremendous efforts to get it off the ground. As their website proclaims, Waveney Sailability is a Trust which has been set up by volunteers with help from local Rotary Clubs to enable those with disabilities to enjoy the challenge of a physical activity in a safe and friendly environment by providing support, training and equipment. Margaret H presented Vince with a donation for this worthy cause. The group meets every other Wednesday in the Church Hall at 8pm, all welcome with refreshments. Next meeting: April 29 - Work of Mercy Ships a talk by Mr and Mrs Carter.
