Women membership reaches 50
This is the highest number and, at 24% the highest proportion of total members (now 206), since records began after the inaugural meeting of the Wheelers on 20 July 1948, at which 23 people were present including two young ladies. Now were aiming for 50% women membership. You can contact Rachel G, our committee rep with special responsibility for increasing participation by women, at women@macclesfieldwheelers.org.uk.
