The Scarborough News - - WELCOME TO YOUR NEWS -


The Ro­tary Club of Scar­bor­ough Cava­liers was es­tab­lished on 10 May 1978 and cel­e­brated its 35th an­niver­sary in 2013. The club is dual mem­ber­ship with al­most 40 male and fe­male mem­bers meet­ing ev­ery Wed­nes­day evening at 7.30pm in the Func­tion Room of the Downe Arms Coun­try House Inn. This year the club’s main fund-rais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded Dragon Boat Rac­ing at Wyke­ham Lakes on June 11 and the an­nual Com­mu­nity Fair in Au­gust. Wildlife and avi­a­tion photographer Andy Rouse will be the guest speaker at the Mick Car­roll Memo­rial Event at Scar­bor­ough Rugby Club tonight.

Mr Rouse will give a talk on his ca­reer as a wildlife photographer and show­cas­ing his work.

The event will raise funds for pa­tient care at Saint Cather­ine’s in mem­ory of Mick Car­roll who was a well-known lo­cal bird­watcher and pas­sion­ate about wildlife con­ser­va­tion, par­tic­u­larly pro­tec­tion of birds of prey from per­se­cu­tion and habi­tat destruc­tion. He passed away from pan­cre­atic can­cer on 21 Oc­to­ber 2015, and was nursed at Saint Cather­ine’s for the fi­nal weeks of his life.

Event or­gan­iser Ian Glaves said ‘‘Any­one with an in­ter­est in wildlife, avi­a­tion, and pho­tog­ra­phy will find this a su­perb night. Andy is a very amus­ing and an­i­mated speaker, and his images are al­ways bril­liant.’’
