The Rotary Club of Limavady
The evening started with a walk in the Country Park for the more energetic, and some hard work and BBQ starting for those less inclined to take a stroll in the park.
Some great rock ‘n roll - courtesy of Paddy Nash and his band – led to some fairly ordinary dancing on the grass; started and encouraged by Peter Jack.
The BBQ cook-off was between the two gas BBQs and the tradition charcoal BBQ was eventually won by Chris Nutt putting in a blinding performance at both cooking and insect repelling.
With 56 Rotarians & guests in attendance, the evening was shaping up to be a success in spite of the inclement weather.
Controversy erupted when many Rotarians discovered that it was a ‘bring your own’ BBQ, however Rotarian Chris Nutt was to the rescue, retrieving (seemingly) endless bottles of wine from the boot of his Bentley.
Now, who said anything about a corkscrew…
Along with the excellent meal the highlight of the night was the Guest Speaker Mrs Nuala O'Loan, the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland. She talked about her job, the challenges she encountered and the successes she has experienced in the 4 years since taking on this important role. She also took the time to answer many questions from the audience.
