THE Inner Wheel Club of Lisburn is celebrating its 50th birthday.

The AGM was held recently in the home of Norma Goggins and an evening of fun and friendship was enjoyed by all. The club was formed on 21st May, 1959, and the Charter Dinner was held in the Conway Hotel in Dunmurry.

At the dinner the chain of office was presented to the first president, Mrs R F McNeight by Maurice Bennett, the president of the Rotary Club of Lisburn. Mrs McNeight's daughter is still a member of the club today. The members are now looking forward to a year of celebrations to mark their first half century and started the year off by presenting two cheques for 1,000 each to Marie Curie Cancer Care and the Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children.
