Llanidloes Rotarians go on a treasure hunt during club 'away day'

Llanidloes Rotarians took on the President’s Treasure Hunt as part of the new president’s away day on last week.

Rotarians, wives and dependents split into five teams before driving out of Llanidloes towards the first clue.

President Stephen Meyer had produced a list of 20 clues with much help from his partner Jenny. The treasure hunt stretched close to 20 miles, and maybe further for some of the teams who headed out towards Y Fan and out past Llyn Clywedog. 

After visiting Cwmbiga and Staylittle the teams pasted down through Llawr Y Glyn before finishing at the Red Lion in Trefeglwys.

There was much discussion and banter between the teams at the end before the club sat and enjoyed a fantastic meal courtesy of Sylvia, the Red Lion landlady.

The club then gathered again on Friday to host its annual Concert in the Park.

Yet again the community turned out in force to support the event ensuring the concert was another success generating over £500 towards Rotary good causes.

Spectators were entertained by the fantastic voices of Tenovus and the musical skills of many young local artists.

The community support returned the following day when Llanidloes Rotary Club raffled two large hampers and a third gift at the town’s carnival.

Kerry and Jason from Newtown were the lucky winners of the first prize with Vicky claiming the second prize and Robert Coates scooping the third prize.

Llanidloes Rotary Club would like to thank everyone who donated on Friday night and everyone who bought a raffle ticket on Saturday, totalling over £900 which will go towards a variety of Rotary good causes.
