The Inner Wheel Club of Horwich celebrated its 68th Birthday with a special party at Ridgmont House last week.

This included a lunch, where the whole club attended, along with guests and members from other Inner Wheel Clubs in the district.

Club correspondent Margaret Pyatt said: “I think 68 is pretty good going.

“The Inner Wheel movement was founded by Margarette Golding in 1924 to help people less well off than herself.

“And now it is a worldwide organisation.

“It started off as all the wives of Rotarians, but it has grown since then, where other people are now invited.”

Celebrations were held on Wednesday, June 15, where President Josette Walsh cut a birthday cake with Denise Mullarkey, chairman of District 128.

Denise later brought greetings from District 128, along with Pat Russell who brought greetings from the sister club, Penrith District 19.

This was then followed by entertainment by Terry Desmond.
