Atherstone Inner Wheel Club    News and Events

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.
