Margarette Golding Plaque Unveiled

Jane  from the Oadby Club attended this special moment in Inner Wheel history. Read her report below...........

When I saw the article in the Association Magazine that a plaque would be unveiled to commemorate the birth on 20th November 1881 of Margarette  Golding nee Owen at 134 High Street Blaenau  Festiniog North Wales, I just knew I had to be there for 3 reasons.

MP Liz Saville- Roberts unveils the plaque.


Firstly Inner Wheel has been part of my life since my mother was a founder member of the Caernarvon Club in 1951. Secondly Mum had been District Chairman of District 18 which included the local Club Porthmadog who were hosting the event and finally because of my surname which  is  Moelwyn-Hughes. Blaenau is situated at the foot of the Moelwyn mountains and has very close associations with my late husband’s family.

Another new Inner Wheel year begins...

Fantasic Success at the Conference ..Well Done

Rosemary Jennings’ ideas for President Zena’s Conference tombola stall worked well and looked so inviting, with prizes in all shades of yellow. The “Outdoors” theme gave Inner Wheel members lots of scope from plastic ducks to large cuddly toys, bird boxes and feeders, garden tools and lots of seeds were just some of the prizes.

A rota had been prepared with hourly slots for our District 7 volunteers but with the stall being inundated with prizes from other Districts and queues to have ‘a go’ it was all hands needed.

The stall opened for business Monday afternoon and when sessions were finished at 3.30pm on the Tuesday we were sold out. Around 1100 prizes had been donated, and raised a magnificent sum of £2,257 for B-eat.

Thank you to all who donated prizes and a HUGE thank you to our volunteers we could not have done it without you.
