Every autumn Rotary clubs across the East Midlands of England compete in the District 1070 minor sports.
Novus were drawn against our old friends Oadby Launde in the first round. And, being the home team. it was up to us to arrange the match.
Channi Riyait arranged for us to play skittles. But most importantly he arranged for it to be at the Rose and Crown in Thurnby where two dozen representatives of both clubs tucked into very generous platefuls of delicious ‘pub grub’ which was enjoyed by all.

At the end of the evening there could be no denying that Oadby Launde were victorious by only three points.

Channi joined President Jason Chauhan and Wendy Dziewanowska for a photo in front of the scoreboard.

All agreed that though the quality of the skittles may have been lacking, the banter and the development of inter-club friendships was first class.

Novus wish their friends in Oadby Launde a very successful run against the other 90 or so clubs in the district.
