On Monday 8th April we welcomed Past Rotary President Anthony Chick and his partner Immediate Past Inner Wheel President Carole Corless from Carnforth UK.


The Friendship between the Rotary and Inner Wheel Club’s of Eastern Hutt and Carnforth started in 1995 when my wife Margaret and I were visiting Carnforth in England and were able to make contact with Immediate Past Rotary President Eddie Hignett and his wife Past Inner Wheel President Maureen Hignett.


Surprisingly Eddie had been President of his Rotary Club the same year as I had and Margaret had been President of her Inner Wheel Club, the same year as Maureen.  This friendship has obviously grown over the years with several very successful reciprocal Home Stay and Club visits enjoyed since 1995 by their Rotary & Inner Wheel Club Members & ours.
