Due to the Covid pandemic, our meetings are all on Zoom at the moment.


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.

              Get set and away!

Sadly the breeze stopped and so did we.  Just discussing, should we surrender and turn back??

Speaker Meeting



presentation of cheque to Dementia



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.
