Here are our Challenge 88 endeavours!
In the gruelling heat, we, as in 8 Ladies and 5 Gentlemen, attempted to do our Inner Wheel 88 Challenge...a walk for 88 mins on the 8th of the 8th month... In Aid of Air Ambulance Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
As we began with that slight sea breeze and everyone raring to go
Get set … and away!
Sadly the breeze stopped and so did we. Just discussing, should we surrender and turn back??
After a quick refreshment break, time to decide!
Enough is enough!
Whew! We are hot and exhausted and yes, it was enough!
The last few joined us!
Time to say Goodbye, until another day when we will finish that challenge!
|Here we go again! The second attempt! And we're off!|
|Best foot forward!||We are taking Beppo with us for a ride!||Setting a good pace!|
|Letting some stragglers catch up!||Judith on her scooter setting a good pace||The end is in sight!|
|At last the fish and chips!||Some are still waiting to be served!||Now we are all served! Enjoy!|

Frederick Smith from Dementia Action Alliance Accepting our cheque for £1500 from Freda.
Fred had given us a very informative and interesting talk on Dementia. His wife had suffered from it and having looked after her for many years, he could speak from first hand experience. He told us not only about the difficult times but also the fun and funny times... it was very obvious that Fred loved his wife very much right up to her sad passing.

Our Swedish Visitors
Two members of Eastbourne Sovereign I.W. Club Judith Cooper and Una Genty, hosted three Members of the Swedish Inner Wheel Club of Nyropin-Oxelosund at the beginning of June.
The ladies, Gunilla, Siv and Kerstin were shown around Alfriston, a lovely old Sussex village, and together with other Members of Eastbourne Sovereign, enjoyed a cream tea in one of the gardens.
That evening they were hosted by Judith for a meal at her home.
The following day they visited Fairlight Glen, for lunch, followed by tea in the garden at PDC Liz Jackson's home.
In the evening a superb buffet dinner was provided in the garden and home of one of our members Hayzen Elphick.
On Thursday lunch was enjoyed at Chartwell, the home of Winston Churchill, followed by a delicious dinner at The Rare Breeds Centre, Tenterden, before returning to London on Friday We enjoyed being with our visitors very much and were sad to see them leave.
