We had 2 lovely ladies from Julian House visit our meeting on Wednesday evening to update us on the progress that they are making as regards their charity and the steps being taken at the Women’s Refuge which they now run as well as all the other good things they do.
Our club supports Julian House in many ways and we hope to continue to liaise with them in the future.

Our club came up with the idea of doing a Science, Engineering and Computing day in conjunction with Bath College. Bath College set up the day and brought in representatives from construction companies teaming up with college tutors to do workshops with a local girl’s school.
Rachel Bell from Stride Treglown ( Architects) gave an introduction to the day and then the workshops began from constructing bridges made out of straws, paper and then coding a ‘Mars Rover’ to move around on a specific board.
We even had a try on of the latest Eksovest which is the only one in the country being tried out.
It was very inspiring and encouraging to see these girls take part and for them to see science in a very different adn fun way. We hope that it has inspired them to take up more STEM subjects. in the future.

We were delighted to present a cheque for £200 to Wiltshire Air Ambulance. We were also given a guided tour around the station and able to see inside the helicopter and also the operations room where all the information is gathered. It is very impressive and gives an insight to the valuable work that the charity does.

Club members and guests joined us for a walk around Bath ‘Reclaiming the night” making the streets safer for women and ending violence against women. We had a good response from the public whilst we handed out ‘Love me, love me not’ bookmarks to emphasise what a good relationship is and what a bad relationsbip feels like.
Father Christmas is a staunch supporter for our very important cause.
