Joint meeting with Inner Wheel – 12 February 2024

This year it was the turn of Winchester Inner Wheel to host our annual joint meeting. Several Winchester Rotary members joined our friends at the Racquets Club.

President Sonia warmly welcomed us and the meeting began with business announcements – we took the opportunity to “plug” the Pancake Races the following day and Steve Feeney updated everyone on the GRSP peogramme – for which a candidate for next year is sought. Anne Smith (coordinator of the upcoming Senior Citizens Party on 9 March) thanked Inner Wheel for continuing their help with tea and gave an update on preparations.

After the meal, the speaker David Spurling’s talk entitled: “Adventures in a 1953 +4 Morgan – the highs and lows of the Peking to Paris Rally” gave a fascinating insight into the preparation for and participation in an international motor rally. With splendid photos of landscapes and his vehicle. The rally crossed several countries – China, Mongolia and Russia, to name but three, before arrival in Paris.

All in all a fascinating and congenial evening – which ended with a raffle, where one of our number was delighted to win a silk scarf!
