The Ascot Inner Wheel celebrated its 50th anniversary with a grand lunch at the Coworth Park Hotel, on February 15th 2013.
Ascot Rotary was established in 1948 but it wasn't until 1963 that four wives, being members of Windsor Inner Wheel, decided to form their own Inner Wheel Club in Ascot, presided over by Mrs Molly Newport. Although only a small club of 19 members, they were very effective in local benevolent work, and received their club charter on 12th February 1963 At the time a local newspaper observed "Owing to flooding at the Royal Ascot Hotel, the event had to be switched at the last moment to the Silver Ring at Ascot Racecourse". Coworth Park is clearly able to cope better with recent, similar weather and the celebration flowed seamlessly .
