Peter Butler bowed out from his year of office as president of Chipping Campden Rotary Club with an afternoon tea at a vineyard.

The club met at the vineyard in Mickleton on Sunday afternoon, 16 June. Twenty Rotarians and guests were entertained in a marquee on the vineyard to English sparkling wine and a full afternoon tea.

Guest of honour was Walter, a fifteen month old black Labrador in training as a Guide Dog for the Blind, Peter’s chosen charity for his year of office.

The Mickleton Vineyard is situated on the Allotments on the edge of Mickleton. Peter is also President of the Vineyard Association. Adopters receive invitations to a barbecue and also a Cheese and Wine event as well as receiving a bottle of each year’s vintage.

This has proved so popular that a third area has just been planted with new vines to meet demand.

New members are always welcome at the Club’s meetings at the Cotswold House Hotel normally on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month at 6.30 for 7 p.m. Please note revised meeting time. To enquire further, please
