District 12 Inner Wheel

Swedish District Contact Clubs Visit

Every 3 years, our District alternates with Swedish District 235 (Stockholm) to make an exchange visit.

In 2013 it is the turn of our Swedish friends to visit England from 4th - 7th June.


25 ladies from 8 clubs of Swedish District 235 (Stockholm) visited this year. Our visitors were from Eskilstuna, Katrineholm, Lidingo, Nykoping-Oxelosund, Stockholm Ekero, Stockholm Nord-Ostra, Stockholm Vastra and Uppsala. They stayed with hostesses in various parts of the District and the programme for their visit comprised of informal events put together by groups of local clubs. There was a District Farewell Dinner at 'The Falcons', Rare Breeds Centre, Woodchurch, TN26 3RJ to which many members came.
