A social club celebrated its 50th anniversary with entertainment from a military wives choir and a celebratory cake.

The Inner Wheel Club of Maldon, a women’s voluntary organisation, has 27 members who meet twice a month.

Over their 50 years they have raised thousands of pounds for local, national and overseas charities.

In June at Colne Valley Golf Club, 11 current Inner Wheel representatives, accompanied by past members, celebrated the club’s 50th Charter Anniversary.
