Easter eggs included in donations to Foodbank

After donating items of food to the Trussell Trust for the last couple of years members of the Inner Wheel Club of Chelwood Bridge have continued to collect items for the Trussell Trust, with their latest offerings including Easter eggs.

This they took along to Midsomer Norton's branch of the Salvation Army, which is the collecting point for the Somer Valley Foodbank.

Members first decided to start collecting items after hearing how so many people go hungry and rely on food banks.

They decided to try and help, and had been bringing tins and packets of food to each meeting, so that they would eventually have a big enough collection of food to donate to a food bank.

West Woodspring outing to Tyntesfield

Following a disastrous March of snow and ice, resulting in cancellation of our monthly meeting, the Ladies of West Woodspring Inner Wheel especially enjoyed April’s spring gathering. We were entertained by Weston Rotarian Vice President, Julian Mathews, who gave a gruesome but amusing account of life in the prison service. After dinner we all admired the 286 premature baby hats the club members had knitted for the Royal United Hospital Bath, these will now be dispatched to the hospital, where we hope they will be put to very good use.

Imagine how delighted the members of Bath Inner Wheel Club were when they learned that one of their members had been chosen to receive the prestigious Margarette Golding Award.

Carol Williams has worked tirelessly and quietly with Bath Samaritans to help others, for over 30 years – no mean achievement and well worthy of recognition. Across Great Britain & Ireland only 5 Margarette Golding awards have been given during this Inner Wheel year, one of whom is our very own Carol! The presentation was made during our Quiz & Quiche Evening by Member of Council, Linda Quinn. Congratulations Carol
