Inner Wheel District 24 Havering

WHERE: Cranham Community Centre, in Marlborough Gardens, Upminster RM14 1SR.

WHEN: The club meets on the first Wednesday of every month.

COST: Membership for the full year is £29.30 and membership for half a year costs £13.65.

CONTACT: email havering@innerwheeldistrict24.org.uk.

Recently members donated 39 pink perfumed Floribunda roses to the Royal Horticultural Society’s (RHS) Hyde Hall, Chelmsford.

The roses were grown in Denmark and named “Inner Wheel Forever” by Princess Benedikte of Denmark at the 2015 Inner Wheel International Convention in Copenhagen.

District 24 vice chairman Celia Clark presented the roses to Hyde Hall Gardens curator Robert Brett and Ian Bull, garden manager for the Hilltop Garden.

Celia said: “Inner Wheel members across our district have sponsored these roses often in memory of past members, family and friends in the hope that their gifts will bring pleasure to passers by whilst reminding them of the voluntary work undertaken by the members of this 93-year-old service organisation.”

The group takes part in a number of community and charity activities and Celia says it is always open for new members who wish to join.

“We are always pleased to welcome new members and our district has clubs across Essex, Havering and Hertfordshire.

“Why not join us, make friends and make a difference?”

The Havering branch is run by Shamim Govani, Marie Beecham and Janet Larkey.
