Members of a Marlow club celebrated its diamond anniversary in the town last week.

All Saints Church Hall played host to more than 90 people on April 12, as Marlow Inner Wheel Club marked its 60th birthday with a party.

Members and visitors from eight other Inner Wheel clubs across the district joined the group to celebrate, as well as friends from the Rotary clubs and members of Tangent, a women’s organisation.

Marlow Inner Wheel president, Kay Heppell, told visitors how the club was formed 60 years ago with 13 members and has now “flourished” and grown to 30, with three new members to be inducted in May.

District Chairman, Linda Clarke, presented the club with a framed commemorative certificate, while Rotary president, John Elliot, thanked the club for its support for their charitable projects and gave the club a 60 roundel for the Presidential Collar.

To mark the special occasion, jeweller Chris Walton gave an interesting talk and diamonds and jewels, followed by afternoon tea.

Joan Clerehugh, club correspondent, said: “Marlow Inner Wheel Club is a small cog in the largest women’s organisation in the world with over 100,000 members in 103 countries joining up to foster international understanding.

“Our members enjoy fun and friendship working together supporting local, national and international charities as well as giving service in the community.

“The club would like to thank everyone who supports their fund raising efforts. We hope to go from strength to strength in the years to come.”
