Fledgling Rotary group takes flight
A FLEDGLING ‘younger’ branch of the Rotary club has taken off around Nailsea and Backwell.
The Nailsea Miners, its name a nod to the town’s industrial past, is a provisional group but already has 12 members, who meet at a Backwell pub once a week.
The sociable group was set up following a recruitment drive by Rotary looking to lower its average membership age.
The group’s driving force, Alison Hull, said: “The group is very different to Rotary Club of Nailsea and Backwell.
“Our members, who are in their 40s and 50s, are too old for clubbing but too young for Countdown.

“They want to widen their social circle and raise money for good causes.”
The Nailsea Miners meet at The George in Backwell on Tuesdays at 7.45pm and organise a meal out once a month.
