PRESS RELEASE – released 14th March 2012

Newbury Young Musicians advance to the next phase of Rotary’s Young Musician of the Year competition

Rotary Club of Newbury

Rotary Club of Newbury

Local young musicians, James Brockhurst, Bethany Coopey and Chloe Flynn who were successful in the recent Newbury Rotary Club Young Musician of the Year competition, took part in the second phase of this Rotary event on the 10th March at St Joseph’s School in Reading. This competition involves four phases before culminating in a grand final at the Bournemouth International Conference Centre in April where a national winner will be selected for both instrumental and for voice.

At the Reading event, which is the Rotary District 1090 final representing Berkshire and parts of Oxfordshire, and Buckinghamshire, ten individuals were in competition, four pianists including James, one flautist who was Chloe, one playing the trumpet and four vocalists including Bethany. After very stiff competition James (14) and Bethany (17) were selected as first in their classifications to go through to the next round, the Rotary South East Regional Final next Saturday the 17th March at 2 pm at The Baptist Church, Cranleigh, Guildford, Surrey. Both James and Bethany attend Trinity School.

The adjudicators, represented by Simon King, Mandy Kesel and Cynthia Crane provided feed back to all the competitors. In the case of James, who played two pieces by Rachmaninov, they described his performance as electrifying. Bethany was told she lit up the room as she sung “So in love” from Kiss me Kate by Cole Porter.

Newbury Rotary Fund New Water Survival Boxes

Newbury Rotary fund new Water Survival Boxes

 The Rotary Club of Newbury, through their International group, has recently sponsored six Water Survival Boxes at a cost of £900.   These boxes will be stored ready for issue to any international disaster area, to protect families from water borne diseases. Water Survival Box is a UK charity trust which is managed by the Rotary Club of Chelwood Bridge. This charity has responded to over 25 natural disasters since the Asian tsunami in 2006.  When a natural or manmade disaster occurs boxes are flown out to the stricken area and within days are being distributed by local Rotary clubs or other international aid agencies. Recent support has been distributed in Colombia, Japan, Pakistan, the Horn of Africa and Philippines.

Each Water Survival Box is a rigid 54 litre plastic container that becomes the receptacle for water when emptied of essential survival items. It includes a pump and filtration pack to give clean drinking water for a family of four for 4 months. The essential survival items typically include a water collection container, drinking mugs, cooking pots, eating bowls, spoons, antiseptic spray, cotton materials, needles and thread to make basic clothes, basic tools and a tarpaulin and cords to make a simple shelter. Effectively, the box is filled with new items that people, who have lost everything, would need to survive the critical weeks following a catastrophic event.  Since starting Water Survival Box has shipped out nearly 9000 boxes around the world.

Full information on the service that Water Survival Box provide can be found on http://www.worldwaterworks.org . Anyone wishing to support or donate can do so online.
