The new President of the Inner Wheel Club of Crewkerne, Trisha Perry, received the Chain of Office from last year’s President, Jean Lane during a lunch-time meeting at Haselbury Mill. Members present at the ceremony included Jan McNeill, who is on the Executive Committee and has recently been selected to represent Area 20 of Inner Wheel clubs as Second Vice President. The ladies of Crewkerne Inner Wheel have enjoyed interesting meetings with a variety of speakers and many social events during the past year.
Inner Wheel is one of the largest service organisations for women in the world, offering membership to women over 18 years of age, who enjoy friendship and becoming involved in making a difference in their local community and worldwide. The Crewkerne club meets monthly for a meal and a meeting, has frequent social get-togethers and there are fundraising opportunities for a local or international charity. Time is also spent out and about, helping in the local community.
The Inner Wheel Club of Crewkerne also runs drop-in mornings for people to check their blood pressure for free, at least once a year and initiated the Crewkerne In Bloom community project which has brightened up the town considerably with colourful floral displays.
