The Helmsley & District Rotary Club, which holds open meetings at the Feathers Hotel, Helmsley every Monday, has projects in the local community supporting deserving organisations and individuals. Members, who live in Kirkbymoorside, Helmsley and surrounding villages, also help internationally on planned projects and emergencies.
Many people are unaware of what Rotary is about but it’s not all raising funds. The club supports various causes such as the Kirkbymoorside and Helmsley 10k runs and at the same time members enjoy a good social occasion.
The Helmsley club is open to men and women who live or work in Helmsley, Kirkbymoorside, Hovingham and other local villages. The modern-style club, which was formed in 2005, couldn’t be further from the traditional all male Rotary clubs. Currently the club has around 14 members and ages range from 40’s to a few of retirement age.
If any one would like an invitation to a club meeting they should contact David Ward, telephone 07718 532009. More information about the club can be found online.
There are 79 Rotary clubs in the Yorkshire district and internationally there are 1.2 million members. The main goal of Rotary is the elimination polio from the world. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (Microsoft) donated $255 million to help in the Rotary campaign and Google Foundation has also given $3.5 million.
That means using some of our spare time, energy and skills in activities that support:
local food production
local energy generation
reuse of unwanted materials
low energy transport
and a thriving local community less dependent on fossil fuels

In 1965 the band took 3rd place playing in the 4th section at the National Finals, and repeated the area win in 1971 when promotion to the 3rd section followed. In 1980 the band was promoted to the 2nd section and won the Northern Area Contest by a clear 5 points. 1n 1981 the band went to London and were promoted to the Championship Section all in the same year . 1984 and 1986 saw the band win the Inter Counties Radio Brass Band Contest and were proclaimed outright champions. In 1989 the band was back in the 2nd section but following their success they were back in the championship section in 1991.
The band has a very healthy junior band which supplies a constant stream of players for the senior band. Leslie Maw ‘BEM’ retired after 36 years as band master in 1988. Leslie’s contribution to the band can not be calculated and the band and the village holds him a position of high esteem. He is still involved with the band and his advice and wisdom is greatly appreciated. It was particularly fitting that he was awarded the British Empire Medal on his retirement.
The band has always been a subscription band and rely on the generosity of the public for support.

The club season starts in September and runs throughout the year.
Members join for a variety of reasons and the club strives to meet the needs and interests of all. With this in mind we also have a number of ‘Project Groups’. These groups meet on the 2nd & 4th Thursdays of each month. The various groups organise other ‘ad hoc’ events designed to meet their particular interests and objectives. The groups include Beginners & Advance Digital Imaging, Developers (Intermediate), Monochrome, Creative and Digital Audio Visual.Our members are involved in all types of photography: Print, Slide, and Digital – both in colour and monochrome.You don’t need sophisticated or specialised equipment to be a member of Kirkbymoorside Camera Club, one of the joys of the club is that it is not ‘equipment orientated’.
We pride ourselves on being a friendly club where anyone with an interest in photography is made welcome, be they beginner or expert. The strength of our club is that we respect each other as individuals and value each others’ work accordingly.
We have a varied programme of members evenings, talks and competitions, where all can and do join in.

CFRs are called out only to life threatening incidents, mainly to heart attacks, strokes or unconscious patients, but never to trauma, traffic accidents or very young children. We are activated from the Yorkshire Ambulance Service operations centre through a special mobile phone. The equipment we carry includes oxygen and a defibrillator, or AED.
CFRs are part of the Ambulance Service but are not a replacement for the ambulance. The Ambulance Service will always despatch an ambulance, air ambulance or rapid response vehicle at the same time as they call out the CFR. In North Yorkshire the distances between rural communities and the narrow roads mean that it can take some time for the ambulance to arrive. The CFRs living in the area and with their local knowledge can get to a scene quickly in their own cars. Their aim is then to keep the patient alive until the professional paramedics arrive.
Community First Responding is a fascinating, exciting and satisfying voluntary activity and we can make a really significant difference. It also carries great responsibility and can be emotionally exacting, so it is not for the half-hearted or squeamish. It is an important example of the local community being involved in its own care.
We are a friendly group and will welcome new volunteers. To find out more please call Michael Turner on 01751 430996.
