Inner Wheel Club of Warsop

by | 6 June 2024 | Inner Wheel, Sherwood, Social Group

Members of the Inner Wheel Club of Warsop have had a busy and fun couple of months.

Meetings have been informative and creative, starting with club secretary Jude holding a creative writing session. Members were encouraged to use their imagination to describe a special place with the use of words. After much head-scratching and (unusually) no talking, the members produced some lovely ideas.

This was followed by the youngest member Emily giving a talk on wildlife conservation in our gardens; apparently everyone needs to love the creepy crawlies! Members then made their own bug hotels and went home with a packet of seeds that are bee and butterfly friendly.

The club then invited Rhubarb Farm, a local non-profit organisation, to talk on the work they do within the local community for people with additional needs. They then donated a car boot full of baby items for Inner Wheel’s baby bundles.

Members also enjoyed had a friendly beetle drive. Lots of laughter and very strange beetles were the name of the game. Member Jenny also told about an award she had been presented with for achieving 50 years in amateur dramatics. A wonderful achievement. President Sharlotte then inducted two new members – Jenny and Mary – who have been welcomed into the club by members.

Other activities started with association treasurer Gloria joining a class to learn how to crochet so that she could make a post box topper. With the assistance of President Sharlotte putting bees, flowers and wording onto the base, the topper looked lovely on the main post box at the local post office.

Held alongside Ravenshead club was afternoon tea with Baroness Bolsover, where members learned that little fingers should not be held up in polite company. The event was a great success, and funds were raised for both clubs’ charity / international funds. Baby bundle making was done by members Christine, Joan and Mavis, with smiles and a cuppa.

Brave members went on a walk to Creswell Crags. The weather was windy so the lovely coffee and cake after the walk was very welcome.

The fun and enjoyment continued with members attending an afternoon tea hosted by The Hostess Restaurant team. Chatter, laughter and dancing went alongside dancing and singing and our raffle made a good amount for President Sharlotte’s charity funds.
Members are now looking forward to Convention and the last few events of President Sharlotte’s year before she hands the reins over to vice President Jean Somerville.
