Two photos of the annual Christmas Lights event at Stony Stratford when the High Street is closed to traffic and a wide range of local organisations set up stalls to raise funds.Wolverton Inner Wheel has supported this event for many years and sells home made produce which raises a substantial amount for local charities. The November weather is often extremely cold so our members share the selling with breaks for hot drinks.

December celebration meal at a local Village Inn
Another Club Tradition is to share a lunchtime in January with the President for a self catered Soup and Pudding lunch. A good opportunity to chat about the events of Christmas.

During March, Ursula, one of our past presidents who had reloacted to her home country of Germany some time ago, returned to the UK for a short visit and met up with a group of Inner Wheel members in Stony Stratford. A very pleasant evening
During March 20 members shared an evening private visit to theHotter Shoe store in Central Milton Keynes and enjoyed a couple of hours private viewing with a buffet and raffle.
Also in March, the International Group arranged a tasting menu one evening at the Antep Kitchen in Wolverton so that members could experience a range of Turkish food. A very successful event.
In addition to the usual monthly meetings, April saw an whist drive run for charity fundraising
In May, a group of members had a few days away in Bruges ( Belgium ) - We understand they enjoyed themselves, but the pictures sent in were none too clear. We say nothing !
JuneThe last boxes of childrens shoes were sorted and prepared for despatch to a Croatian Charity we have supported for many years. This will be the last shipment as we no longer have the storage and the person who send the shoes out is retiring.The shoes were collected by us from a local store, saved when children came in for larger sizes and most were in good condition and too good for scrapping.They were shipped out to orphanages and homes in Eastern Croatia where many folk were homed after leaving other ex-Yugoslavian countries after the troubles.
