Atherstone Inner Wheel Club    News and Events

The handover to incoming President Ann took place recently - still in compliance with social distancing rules! 

Ann has a full programme planned which we are waiting to finalise, she will be supporting  Bee Line a charity that takes local people to appointments. 

President Tracy has had the Hartshill Scouts as her Charity for 2019/20 and we have a nice cheque ready to present when the time is right.

The Scouts decided to try to give some sort of gift to all the residents, 94 in total in the 3 local Care Homes in Hartshill to cheer them up and asked if we would like to make a contribution.

We made cakes, muffins,biscuits, collected toiletries, socks games, flowers, books, pencils and lots of jigsaws.

It will be interesting to see the final results, the scouts wrote letters, made cards, drew pictures, told stories, decorated stones etc.

We have also sponsored a worker at the Mary Ann Hospice here in Nuneaton, Heather, who runs the kitchen. She usually receives our cake contributions each month and she was thrilled to bits that we had nominated her.

Atherstone ladies manning the Toy Tombola Stall at Atherstone's Dickens Event. Only a £1 a go with a prize every time, plus a free lolly, kept us and the children of Atherstone busy. A substantial sum of money was raised for President Tracy's

Charity this year, Hartshill Scouts. A few aches and pains with all the hard work but the childrens' smiling faces made it all worthwhile when they received the prizes.

Our speaker for the November meeting was Carol Collins who folds books into Angels, Hedgehogs, Christmas Trees and Cottages to name a few, we now hope to hold a workshop coffee morning to have a go ourselves.

Money raised goes to MacMillan Cancer Support, and she is happy to do talks if anyone would like to try this fascinating hobby of Book Folding.

In August we had a garden party at the home of Sandra and Brian, monies raised were for President Tracy's Charity for this year - Hartshill Scouts. 

In September we enjoyed a talk by Brenda and David Lincoln about the wonderful Quilts they make for Injured Servicemen, Q4IS, amazing work shown in the photo.
