The Inner Wheel Club of Wolverton
A Photo record of Events from year 2017 / 18
A full 12 months of images from editions of our monthly newsletters are shown here covering the complete Inner Wheel year ( July to June )
JULY 2017
Busy July with a new President taking over ( Top right ) and a horticultural gift to the retiring President (left). Cheques were also presented to Macintyre to support their work in Milton Keynes ( below) and an International group presentation to Jaf Shah of ASTI to support that charity’s work with survivors of acid attacks
July also saw a walk and a visit to the Wolverton ‘Secret Garden’ - a landscaped area tucked away down near the Grand Union Canal on land that used to be part of the old railway works. The two grey figures are statues sitting on a bench.
We don’t have any August Photos when the monthly meeting featured a visit from our District Chairman, but in September our walking enthusiasts did a walk around the village of Hanslope and learned a lot about the vllage history. The Club has had an active couple of months but regretfully, few photos
OCTOBER 2017 Visit to the Theatre Royal, Northampton with a tour of the back stage areas
From the ‘Front of House’ with the fine old Theatre to the stage itself and then the ‘properties‘ and scenery building workshops
Again, few photos to show you of the November events. Several of our members sang in choirs in the lead up to Christmas, One of our members prepared some artwork to go with a peom for an entry to the International Association conference competition in 2018.
December is a busy month for Inner Wheel with several events ( including our Christmas Lunch ) and the fund raising stall at Stony Stratford for the Christmas lights switch on and lantern parade
Because of the uncertainty of the weather, our usual monthly meeting was held at the President’s home where we all enjoyed the warming soups and yummy puds
Several of our members supported a Bedford Church and their Candlemass Flower Festival. Knitted blankets are always acceptable by the needy and charities, so a group of members spent a happy afternoon sewing squares together
MARCH 2018
At our March Meeting, members were invited to bring along items for our speaker to talk about and value
March also brought the Inner Wheel Annual Conference, this year at Bournemouth. 9 members attended travelling down in style by executive minibus. A very enjoyable three days. Excellent speakers and the chance to meet up with old friends from around the UK
APRIL 2018
The Children’s shoe sorting team sprang into action again this month and 315 pairs were checked, paired and packed ready to go out to orphanages in Eastern Europe
MAY 2018
This month we held a successful fashion show at a local community centre raising a lot of interest and some useful funds
JUNE 2018
A group of our members also supported the neighbouring Newport Pagnell Inner Wheel Club at their Strawberry Tea
June brings the end of the Inner Wheel year and we have a day out with our retiring President. This year we took President Barbara to Thenford House in Northamptonshire. Home of Michael Heseldine. Lovely gardens and a chance for a social get together
At our June meeting we also arranged to handover the Presidency to Carole Whyte for the new year
This abbreviared record of photos has been taken from the monthly editions of ‘Chat In’, the Wolverton Club newsletter, which each member receives.
