Swaffham Rotary Club

Swaffham Rotary Club President’s Corner Hansa Lynn Our Rotary Club outside visit this year on Monday 8th May was a tour of some of the historic buildings of the Hanseatic Port of Lynn under the expert guidance of Dr Paul Richards, local historian and authority on the Hanseatic League. This network of merchants in port cities, primarily on the North German Baltic coast in cities such as Hamburg and Lübeck, held a monopoly of northern European bulk trading from the 13th to the 17th centuries. Membership of the league was economically and politically beneficial and accounts for the wealth of Lynn, Boston and other East Coast ports during this period. King’s Lynn has the best preserved buildings of any of the English Hanseatic towns and Dr Richards’s commentary gave us a real flavour of the period. It was interesting to note that a number of German merchants shared one room in the Guildhall without partitions – clearly the open plan office is nothing new. Eventually elite international economic cooperation gave way to political ambition and nationalistic self-interest (nothing new there either), and the League’s importance declined The visit was ably organised by past president Dorothy Pulsford-Harris and included an enjoyable lunch in the Rathskeller Restaurant. Afternoon tea at St Peter and St Paul Whittley, Sue Henry, Nigel Chambers, Julia Wallace, Alan Henry and Sheila Chambers. Rotary Charity Golf Day Plans for the 2017 Charity Golf event at the Swaffham Golf Club on Monday 10th of July are welladvanced. With main beneficiaries the East Anglia Air Ambulance and SSAFA (the armed forces’ charity) some 18 teams of four will be testing their skill (and their patience). There are still a few places left so if you would enjoy a good round of golf on a fine golf course get in touch with Graham Curtis on 01760 338976 or email gcurtis772@btinternet.com. David Morris Hedgehog News Many people go out to clear areas, move sheds etc. as the weather improves. Chris has received many frantic phone calls from people who come across nests with tiny hoglets in. Should this happen please immediately recover the nest. If mum is frightened off, move away & keep an eye to make sure she comes back. This may take some-time, even hours dependant on how frightened mum is. If mum is still with the babies, phone to get a rehabilitator to come as soon as possible. The British Hedgehog Preservation Society 01584 80801; info@britishhedgehogs.org.uk; www.britishhedgehogs.org.uk are the best contact as they know of all rehabilitators across the whole of the UK. Rehabilitators, like Christine are registered with the BHPS & they are aware of whether rescue centres are open/full/on holiday. If mum has not returned & you have phoned the BHPS they will advise you as to whether to bring the babies inside. Only once they have been left a considerable time. If however, you find/hear babies who squeak like baby birds, & discover a nest with no mum or small babies who have come out of a nest as mum hasn’t returned from feeding, place in a high sided box with a hot water bottle wrapped in a towel to give heat. Keep outside close to where found just in case mum returns & again phone for help. Later the same week the Afternoon Tea in Swaffham Parish Church in aid of Rotary International’s “Purple4Polio” campaign was well-attended, raising over £300 for the campaign to eradicate polio. Organisers and bakers included (l to r) Malcolm 20 Swaffham Branch 01760 725801 http://www.family-action.org.uk building better families
