Discover Romsey


A weekend of heavy rain failed to dampen the spirits of the Relay For Life walkers and their families during the weekend of March 3 and 4 at the Lancefield Park.

The Romsey Lancefield Rotary Club Inc served about 500 dinners and 340 breakfasts to the delight of the hungry, wet and cold walkers.

Special thanks to the Rotary Director of the Rotary event (PP) Mark Shepherdley and the Rotarians and friends of Rotary who volunteer their time and expertise. This is their tenth year in operation and meals included steak, sausages, Vegie patties, hamburgers, onions, salads etc for dinner on Saturday night. For breakfast on Sunday the walkers enjoyed eggs and bacon, toast, orange juice, cereal together with tea and coffee (Vegemite, an assortment of jams) etc. Various teams (below) tuck into the dinner and breakfast on offer.
