Rotary at The Convent

The Rotary Club of Gibraltar recently held a ploughman’s lunch fund-raising event in the Convent Cloisters. The afternoon was part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and Rotary thanks the Governor for his hospitality. The lunch was well attended by members of the public who enjoyed a lovely sunny day in beautiful surroundings with entertainment by popular local musician Wally.
