The Inner Wheel Club of Woodbridge have had a busy spring period as club correspondent Sue Holloway writes.

In April we were pleased to take part in Woodbridge on Show, where we had the opportunity to give visitors an insight into who we are and what we do.

Some members enjoyed a sunny day exploring the Shotley peninsula, visiting Shotley Gate, Pin Mill and Grayson Perry's house at Wrabness.

At our May meeting, Martin Tickell gave a fascinating talk about house martins, accompanied by wonderful pictures of the birds and their nests.

The arrival of house martins from Africa is one of the first signs of spring, and they quickly get busy finding mud to build their nests, often under the eaves of houses.

Some pairs will raise two broods of chicks over the summer before returning to Africa in the autumn.

A vote of thanks was given by Deirdre Griffin.

We have a variety of events planned for the summer which include a visit to New Suffolk College for lunch, and a riverside walk followed by a pub lunch.
