A little bit of history - we are nearly 40 years old!
World Inner Wheel Day was celebrated in many ways and our President, Jennifer Bird, and I joined the World Inner Wheel Day Church Service held on Monday 11 January, 2021 organised by District 5 and 128 of Inner Wheel. Up to 192 ladies joined in, including members from India, Bangladesh, Germany and France. Everyone was muted so we could sing the hymns to our heart’s content. As a Club, we celebrated the day by making numerous phone calls to each other, it was a great day for chatting! , To recognise World Inner Wheel Day, I, as did many others, put a light in my window for two days.
Our International Officer, Ruth Jenkins, has been busy collecting puppets that members and friends have made. These will go into the shoeboxes that we hope will be ready by March. Members have been generous in donating their meal money so that Ruth can buy bargains on Amazon to help fill the boxes. The Club has been supporting the Rotary Shoebox Scheme for over 10 years now which operates all year and not just for Christmas. They spread a little happiness to disadvantaged children and adults in Eastern Europe. The boxes cost £2.00
Ruth has been busy with another project which was started in 1986 and was originally intended for her daughter who was then aged 5. Her daughter designed the central cat motif and using Laura Asley fabrics, Ruth was prompted to complete the quilt during Lockdown 2 for her 13-month-old granddaughter, Florence.
Lovely words embroidered:
For Flo from Granny
