President Glenys has chosen Young Carers as her charity this year and the club sponsored a fun trip for some of them on the "Pamela May" canal boat.

Some of the Club were in Vines Park, Droitwich to see them off

The trip was enjoyed by all the youngsters who were able to take a turn at steering and working the locks.  The ice cream at the Marina added to their enjoyment.

This morning's work on behalf of Inner Wheel at the Christmas Tree Festival in St. Andrew's Church Droitwich Spa.  The church will be open from 26th November until Christmas for viewing of the display. 

athaniel Hawthorn described the autumn sunshine as ‘precious’, and it was a bright sunny morning when we arrived at Bodenham Arboretum.

We decided to walk around the lake to build up an appetite for lunch. Even though many of the trees were still green there were still enough with yellow, red and golden leaves to make it a beautiful, as well as enjoyable, perambulation.  Chatting with friends in the autumn sunshine as we strolled along certainly was ‘precious’.

It was a good job that Glenys had booked a table for lunch because the restaurant was very busy. When we ate our lunches we could see why, the food was excellent.

A group of us visited Great Witley Church in August where, following an enjoyable lunch in the garden of the Tearooms, we were guided round the highlights of this impressive building by Howard Robinson.

In July Howard had given a most interesting illustrated talk on the church at our monthly meeting and then invited us to visit

President Glenys’s charity for her year in office is St. John Ambulance and our speaker, Richard Brown was invited to tell us all about its history.  Formed in 1887 as a voluntary organisation offering free medical care, the Brigade goes all the way back to 11th century Jerusalem where the first Knights of St. John set up a hospital to care for sick pilgrims.
