Personal message from President Diana Phillips

I joined the Inner Wheel Club in 2003 having returned to England after living in Germany for twelve years. The friendship and companionship I received was wonderful and helped enormously in settling back into this country.

I was born in Reading, grew up in Farnborough and have lived in Cyprus and Lincolnshire as well as Germany. I am now back in my home-town with no plans of moving again. During my time with the Club I have been Club Correspondent and Speaker Finder.

We find ourselves in very unusual times with Covid-19. Many of our plans this year have had to be cancelled but we have maintained contact with our members through telephone groups, a vibrant WhatsApp group and weekly quiz sessions. Our Bridge group has managed to play together online. For the future we will take advantage of the easing of lockdown and are planning small coffee mornings and walking groups so members can begin meeting up again. At the moment we have zoom meetings, light our candle of friendship and have a Thought for the Day. We will continue the work we have been doing within the Community. We look to the coming months with hope and that life will return to some semblance of normality.

The charity I would like to support this year is JAC’s - Just Around the Corner. This is a Wokingham based Charity that gives assistance to deprived children in the Community through both in and outdoor activities including horse riding, boosting their awareness of life in the greater community.
