DUNMOW'S Inner Wheel Club celebrated the 84th National Inner Wheel Day on Wednesday (January 16) by inviting members of the Blind and Housebound Club, including nine former members of the inner wheel, to a tea party at the Rowena Davey Day Centre on Chequers Lane.

From 2.30pm the guests were treated to a brief history of the Inner Wheel by President Olga Burrell before she introduced the Dunmow Players who provided great entertainment for the afternoon with songs, recitals and poems, many of them well known as the guests joined in.

Mrs Burrell said: "Every inner wheel club across the world does something different on this day every year. We are all good at cooking and so we thought it would be a great idea to host a tea party.

"Dunmow's own Inner Wheel has been going for more than 40 years now, every club tries do something different and unique."

Once the singing and laughter from the wonderful Dunmow Players performance had died down the 40 or so guests enjoyed traditional tea fare of

cakes, prepared by members of the Inner Wheel.

Chairman for the Blind and Housebound Club, Diana Tapp, thanked the members for their efforts "for a most enjoyable afternoon".
