Tue Jan 21st - Speaker - Anthony Addams - The Panama Canal (and more)
For the first half of my talk I will cover the politics, building, daily operation and new developments of the Panama Canal. Then I will visit other exciting canal structures in Scotland, Belgium, France and Germany. This will include a 240 feet high lift, an inclined plane (literally pushing water uphill!), a 90 feet deep lock, the Falkirk Wheel and the Kelpies. I have lots of good photos and I have been to each place.

Tools with a Mission
Do you have any unwanted tools, ones you no longer need or use? Clearing a garage or sorting a shed? The Rotary Club of Nuneaton is working with the charity Tools with a Mission to collect unwanted hand tools and other items to be sent to developing countries in Africa. These can change lives, help people to help themselves and create livelihoods for the future.
If you have any items you would like to donate please contact: Graham on 07875 31994 - Collection of donations can be arranged. See more details on the attachment right ->>

Free Library Service
We have been contacted by the Warwickshire Library and Information Service concerning their Home Delivery Service which is a free library service for those who are unable to visit their local or mobile library due to ill health and infirmity.
Volunteers call every four weeks with a selection of books based on customer preferences and they can stay and have a little chat with them about books and interests (as well as a lot of other things probably).
There is a link to a promotional flyer for further information and we will be having some leaflets made available at our monthly meeting.
It is a worthy and useful service and I urge those who have trouble getting to the library regularly to contact them on
01926 851031 or online at Library Website or email Library Email
Please Note: This service is for Warwickshire residents only. If you are from another county, then you will probably find that your own county provides a similar service.
