Lockdown starting at the end of March curtailed all of the Inner Wheel of Bridport’s monthly meetings at Haddon House Hotel.

Luckily, the group’s innovative president for 2019/20, Sue Pollock, came to the rescue.

An Inner Wheel member said: “Not only did she chair committee and club meetings via Zoom, but she also managed to send out a weekly email over an 11 week period telling us what has been happening in her life, including anything regarding Inner Wheel.

“This helped to keep the club together and gave us camaraderie and lots of laughs and also instigated other members to add their emails. So altogether, we have had plenty to hear about.”

The handover to the new president always takes place in July and Sue and the new joint presidents, Helen French and Mavis Gurd, organised a virtual Zoom handover in Helen’s garden on July 21.

The member added: “Who knows what the next year will bring but Helen and Mavis have plenty of events up their sleeves.”
