15 Pink, Perfumed, Floribunda Roses bred in Denmark and named “Inner Wheel Forever” by Princess Benedikte of Denmark at the 2015 Inner Wheel International Convention in Copenhagen, have been donated to the gardens at Lake Meadows.
The Mayor of Basildon, Cllr. David Harrison and Charles Novis, Chairman of The Friends of Lake Meadows, received the gift from Inner Wheel District Chairman Janet Larkey at the ceremonial planting on 7th March at 10.30 at Lake Meadows.
District Chairman Janet said “We are delighted to be passing these roses into the care of The Friends of Lake Meadows. Inner Wheel members across our district have sponsored roses, often in memory of past members, family and friends in the hope that their gifts will bring pleasure to passers by whilst reminding them of the voluntary work undertaken by the members of this 93 year old Service Organisation”.
