'Inner Wheel' visit to Brewood Hall

The ladies of Inner Wheel made an evening visit to Brewood Hall on Wednesday, 21st July 2010. The 44 guests almost managed to fit into the Dining Room whilst Jan Ford talked about the history of the Hall. The ladies then embarked on the serious business of eating.

The meal was a Faith Supper, where each guest contributes a dish of food to be shared among the group, like a 'Potluck'.

Jan Ford then took around half the guests on a conducted tour of the principal rooms, whilst the second half chatted and wandered around the garden. The remaining guests were then taken on the tour whilst the first group had an opportunity to chat or walk in the garden.

With everyone re-united in the dining room, the customary raffle was held. Everybody seemed to enjoy their evening and this must be the first visit by an all-female group to the Hall in over 40 years.

There are more photographs taken during the evening here.

Inner Wheel was formed in 1923 to complement Rotary, which at the time did not admit women. Although women may now be admitted to Rotary, Inner Wheel membership is only open to eligible females. For more information, see the Association of Inner Wheel Clubs in Great Britain & Ireland website.
