Inner Wheel club members celebrate Inner Wheel Day with a tea party for the senior citizens of the Chew Valley
The club celebrated its seventh Inner Wheel Day by hosting a tea party, with tea, sandwiches, cake, bingo , raffle and games for guests from around the Chew Valley at Pensford Village Hall. Club President, Mary Smith said : “Every year Inner Wheel clubs all over the world celebrate this day by doing different things. We at Chelwood Bridge like to do something within the community so we invited guests from around the Chew Valley to tea.” Guests who required transport were chauffeured by members of the Rotary Club of Chelwood Bridge.
Inner Wheel Day is celebrated all over the world with January 10th as the anniversary of the day when Inner Wheel was first founded in 1924 by Margarette Golding, the founder President.
