A group of 9 members of Colwall Rotary Club paid a visit to Berlin last weekend.

Colwall Rotary visit BerlinOne of the objects of Rotary is to Promote International Understanding & Goodwill through visits, exchanges and other means.

During this visit we met with a local club - The Rotary Club of Berlin Unter den Linden, where we were made extrememly welcome; to such an extent that they held the meeting totaly in English! I think that we would struggle to return the compliment.

Featuring amongst other acivities a cycle ride through the city centre on Sunday morning and a visit the to DDR Museum all the group achieved a greater understanding of what the city has been through. The general feeling was that this was a place to go back to.

Providing new homes and facilities in India and Sri Lanka was then a priority but with villages being moved away from the beaches new roads had to be built and Government permission obtained.
