The Rotary Club of Highcliffe on Sea held it's annual members Golf Day on Thursday 11th May at the Highcliffe Castle Golf Club and enjoyed superb early summer weather. The course was in it's usual pristine condition particularly considering the lack of rainfall and great credit goes to the ground staff. The winner this year was Rotarian Mike Ackling who lead the field back to the clubhouse with a creditable 40 points much to his surprise and satisfaction. In the evening Rotary members and their partners gathered in the clubhouse for fellowship followed by a two course dinner

Paul Harris is recognised as the founder of the Rotary worldwide organisation in 1905 and Rotary ideals are based on the principles of Philanthropy and Fellowship. In 1957 the Paul Harris Fellowship (PHF) was established to recognise those who are considered to have ascribed to these ideals. It remains the highest accolade that can be awarded by a Rotary Club.

When Tony Greenwood reluctantly resigned from the Club for health reasons and so that he and his wife, Marcia, could move closer to their family in the Midlands, the members of Highcliffe Rotary Club decided that we could not say farewell to Tony without recognising the enormous contribution he has made to the ongoing success of the Club. Tony joined Highcliffe Rotary Club in 1979 and has been a keen supporter of all we have done for the past 38 years. Tony was the Club’s President in the year 1992 to 1993. Even during recent years as their health was deteriorating, Tony and Marcia would still be at as many of the Club’s functions as they could manage.


Tony recently returned to visit his house in Lymington and a small group of our members took the opportunity to visit Tony to present him with the Paul Harris Fellowship award
