The Inner Wheel Club of Chelwood Bridge’s AGM was a memorable event with everyone being thanked by outgoing President Heather Curtis, who said: “I would like to thank all the members of my committee. Each one of them has contributed a great deal to the club this year .

I have enjoyed my year as President and it has been a year of laughter and fun, as well as fundraising .”

Heather,  who chose the Forever Friends Appeal as her charity for the year, said that the group had 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.

New President, Marjorie Robinson, who has chosen the Carers’ Centre at Radstock as her charity for the year, 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 am looking forward to the next year knowing that I will be helped and encouraged by my fellow members,” she said, adding : “I hope to make it a fun filled year, with the support of my wonderful committee.”
