President 2021-2022

We were delighted to take part in the Minster Christmas Tree Festival (Ilminster) where our tree was covered in donated spectacles suitably decorated in Inner Wheel colours, of course!  

During the week we received lots of old specs which will go to those who need them overseas via our local optician.

Do you use Blister Packs?

20 years ago!

We started 2022 with Rotary President Peter giving a very informative talk about his time in the MET and his work with the Flying squad. It was also very amusing in parts, especially when Peter was explaining how the officers of the squad achieved their nick-names…….

However we all agreed how dedicated brave and professional they all seemed.

Some of Peter’s stories seemed to come as news to our guest, Peter's wife, Alison!

As we met on International Inner Wheel day we brought items for the local food bank, The Lords Larder, some of which are shown here when we delivered them. We were also delighted to be able to pop some money into their bank account.

And we will soon hit the 400kg mark with the empty medicine blister packs!!!

A total of 9 bags in that heap.

We have such a great florist in Chard, just have to put these up! Very interesting talk from Sylvia's husband who filled in at the last minute and told us about his life in Australia when he went out there on a Kellogs Foundation grant many years ago. He didn't try growing pineapples here when he returned though!

There are actually six members in the below photo, you just need to look hard to see Eileen hiding in the distance! Coffee, a walk and lunch at Ham Hill.
