Rotary and Inner Wheel Guest Night

The Rotary-Inner Wheel joint Guest Night on March 31st was a great success. Canterbury Inner Wheel celebrates its 90th Anniversary this year and invited Lord and Lady Carey as Guests of Honour.

Everyone enjoyed the fellowship, food and fun, with flying balloons livening up the evening.

In a keynote speech, Lord Carey congratulated Canterbury Inner Wheel for their long-standing efforts in supporting local charities as well as their Rotarian partners. He was especially glad that two Inner Wheelers: Irene Roe and Sheila Cragg, had been honoured by Rotary International with Paul Harris Fellowships for their tireless work helping the Community through Inner Wheel.

The Guest Speaker was Richard Goodenough, who gave a highly informative and well-illustrated talk on the Impressionist painters and their associations with gardens.
