The Inner Wheel Club of Kirkcudbright are sorry to announce the sudden death in December 2017 of one of our best loved members, Moira Thomas. Moira, who was 82, joined the Inner Wheel Club of Singapore in 1987 and was President there for 2 years from 1990 to 1992 before returning to the UK in 1993. She loved the friendship and values of Inner Wheel and enthusiastically involved herself in active roles, meetings and events. She was always cheerful and welcoming, and her sparkling personality will be missed by all.
A coffee morning was held with her husband Bill who had written such moving words, with gentle humour, about her and their past Diamond Wedding Anniversary together. Fabulous location with stunning views and hospitality second to none. Thanks to all who attended and gave generously to her requested charity, Starlight Childrens Foundation.
Christmas Dinner held on December 6th 2017
President Sue and guests enjoying the club's annual Christmas Dinner, held at Selkirk Hotel, Kirkcudbright.
The wonderful Christmas cake was made and decorated by Linda Kinnell. The cake was raffled raising a significant amount, boosting the club's charity account.
Coffee and Cakes - a winning combination!
About the area
Kirkcudbright, population about 3500, is situated in Southern Scotland, on the estuary of the River Dee in the heart of Galloway. The town is an ‘Artists’ Town and holds regular art exhibitions. Many famous artists have lived and worked in the area, which is surrounded by beautiful countryside.
Kirkcudbright has many attractions and countless clubs and societies. It boasts a panoramic 18-hole Golf Course, a Wildlife Conservation Park, a Marina and working harbour and a community run Swimming Pool. Others places of interest are the Museum, Broughton House, a National Trust property where E.A.Hornel lived and Maclellan’s Castle.
The Summer Festivities run events all through the summer, culminating in the Tattoo, always a show-stopper! There is also a Jazz Festival in June and an Arts and Crafts Trail in July. Kirkcudbright has a wealth of things to see and do in a wonderful setting.
