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.
