Three quarters of a century of friendship and fundraising were celebrated yesterday when Windsor and Eton Inner Wheel members held their 74th birthday tea.
The event was held at the York Club in Windsor Great Park, beginning with the lighting of three 'candles of friendship' by longest serving member Mary Walter, president Daphne Fido and newest recruit Ann Marie Morgan.
Then a cake made specially by secretary Valerie Bishop was cut.
Guests included the presidents of both Windsor's rotary
A highlight of the afternoon came when Mrs Fido presented a cheque for £100 to the mayor for the Prince Philip Trust.

Mrs Fido's chosen charities for her term as president include First Responders and Family Friends, both organisations that offer help and support to people in the community.
