It has been a year of laughter and fun, as well as fundraising , under the presidency of Heather Curtis, who chose the Forever Friends Appeal as her charity for the year, culminating with an afternoon tea party, which will be held in June before she retires.
The group also enjoyed several interesting speakers at their meetings, including Major Sharon Bond from the Salvation Army and the Food Bank, Mark Green from the Freewheelers Blood Bikes, Peter Hopwood from Priston Mill and Olympian and Inner Wheel District Chairman Lynne Evans. The group also held a very successful tea party for senior citizens as their contribution to Inner Wheel Day, along with a couple of coffee morning fundraisers.
The new President, Marjorie Robinson, who takes over in June, said: “I am a founder member of the club and this will be my second term as President.
“Our club will continue to host the annual tea party for senior citizens on IW day, support the Somer Valley food bank and pack shoe boxes in the autumn for children at Christmas..
“I plan to support one of the smaller charities in the area, and am looking forward to the next year knowing that I will be helped and encouraged by my fellow members.
“I hope to make it a fun filled year, with the support of my wonderful committee.” she added.
Marjorie is married to Colin, a Rotarian, and they have two children and two grandchildren.
