Inner Wheel Club of Burnham on Sea
Meet at Burnham & Berrow Golf Club TA8 2PE at 18.45 for 19.30
on the 3rd Wednesday of the month
No meeting in August
President Rita is on the receiving end!
A Bristol Blue Bowl has been engraved by Burnham Rotary Club to commemorate our Club’s 70th Charter. Unfortunately the celebrations were put on hold from March 2020, but in January 2022 we welcomed Rotary to our meeting and the Bristol Blue Bowl was presented to the Club by IPP Rotarian Terry Spragg.
The Bristol Blue Bowl is to be presented to a
member of our Club who has shown exceptional
service and gone above and beyond the call of duty
in Inner Wheel and outside in the community.
The committee and members voted that the first recipient should be President Rita, as a recognition of all the work she has put into Inner Wheel over the last few years. Rita has been our President for 3 years, which is unheard of in normal times, and also she has worked tirelessly to keep everyone involved in IW. Rita has also been keeping in touch and visiting with members that have been poorly (where allowed). I think you will all agree that Rita has been amazing.
To Rita with our heartfelt thanks
Sue (Club Secretary)
President Rita has been busy making presentations!
Firstly to member Kelly to acknowledge her recent fast thinking action, administering CPR on a young lady and bringing her back to life.
Secondly to Father Graham, a Trustee of the local Foodbank which we are delighted to support.
A summer of 2020 meeting in between lockdowns!
We look forward to being able to meet properly this summer - eventually
and to get back to having some fun!
PARCELS FOR THE YMCA, HIGHBRIDGE
As we were unable to fill our usual shoeboxes before Christmas, we decided to make up parcels for the people staying at the YMCA in Highbridge over Christmas. These adults have been referred to the YMCA from the Council, and have lost jobs and homes. The YMCA is endeavouring to get them somewhere to live to enable them to get a job.
Burnham-on-Sea’s ISO Penelope was extremely busy in the run up to Christmas. As due to CoVid restrictions, she has had to parcel up all the items donated by members on her own. President Rita and Penelope managed a shopping trip before Lockdown No 2 and Rita also helped in some of the parcel wrapping. Each collection of clothes and goodies were put in a cotton drawstring bag and then wrapped in Christmas paper and a card from the Club attached to each one.
