Inner Wheel Club of South Wairaarapa

July 6, 2020 July 2020 No Comments

Hooray! We are in Alert Level One and as I write, there is no Coronavirus is in the country. We can get together at last. While some might say absence makes the heart grow fonder, I like to think that most of us are basically sociable beings. On the other hand the lockdown has had decided benefits in the form of us rediscovering old skills like baking, jam-making, doing home repairs and flossying up the garden. During this time Inner Wheel members have tried to maintain contact with each other through phone, emails, the occasional zoom meetings and for those fortunate enough to live in a cul-de-sac, a companionable, appropriately distanced wine with neighbours. 

Now “our team of 5 million” has achieved this amazing milestone, our club had its first informal meeting at The Offering on 15 June. Not only was it the Club’s first informal meeting since Covid 19, but it was also an Expo when we showcased the products of our primary activity during the last few weeks, knitting blankets and baby gear. These are to be shared between the Australian victims/survivors of the terrible fires and charities in New Zealand. It was one way we could acknowledge the skill and effort that our members (not to mention our mothers and grandmothers and the occasional father) had put into this activity. It was a great success and our raffle raised several hundred dollars that can go towards warm winter woollies for Wairarapa children who need them. At the same time it was great to get together again! A request – if by any chance you have a stash of wool hidden away somewhere that needs a home, please contact Ali Rankin whose email is below..

.New members welcome. Please contact President Ali Rankin, ar.tuppence@gmail.com
