There was no club meeting at the Olde House on Friday 7 December 2018 as members were invited to join other guests for a joint Christmas meeting with the Chesterfield Inner Wheel club, held at the Sandpiper Hotel, The Brushes, Chesterfield. It was certainly a meeting with a difference.
Christmas lunch is served
After an enjoyable Christmas lunch there followed a Christmas quiz, raffle, and some unusual entertainment from Adrienne's Amateurs, a spirited performance of 'The Derby Tup', a tale of old Derbyshire.  The playlet was performed by members of the Inner Wheel Executive Committee, with starring roles for Inner Wheel president Adrienne Handley as the farmer, Rotary president Barry Thompson guested as the poor old Ram, which sadly was eventually savagely killed by the farmers boy, played by joint Inner Wheel president Joan Wadd.
