Rotary has committed more than $1.2 billion to the global eradication of Polio. March 27th 2014 was a landmark day in the eradication programme when the South-East Asia Region of the World Health Organization (WHO) was certified polio-free, an historic milestone in the worldwide effort to end polio.
The 11 countries in the region - Bangladesh, Bhutan, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, India, Indonesia, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Timor Leste - are home to 1.8 billion people and represent the fourth of six WHO regions of the globe to become polio-free.
On the evening of the 13th March 2014,the Rotary Club of Dronfield arranged and promoted a Music Evening for schools in Dronfield. This successful venture in the Winding Wheel, Chesterfield showed to the assembled audience of 600 the high standards of musical talent we have in Dronfield.There were contributions from bands of Dronfield Henry Fanshawe School; including some stunning solo performances, and the primary phase was represented by Dronfield Junior, Unstone Junior, Northfield Junior, Gorseybrigg Primary and William Levick Primary Schools. Across these performances there was a wide range of melodies sung by the different choirs. These all gave great pleasure to the audience. In all cases, the high quality of teaching, the time invested by individual teachers, staff and all the young people all paid dividends through their display of skills. For all participants and audience members it was a pleasurable and rewarding experience.
