How do we achieve this in our Club?
TO PROMOTE TRUE FRIENDSHIP
We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at The Prince of Wales Hotel, Berkeley Road (5.45 pm for 6.15 pm in the Summer months & 11.45 am for 12.15 pm during the Winter) for a business meeting and a speaker or other arranged item.
We host an annual InterClub Lunch or Evening meal, usually with a speaker or entertainment to which we invite other Clubs in our district.
We hold our Charter Night in October each year, the Charter being the anniversary of the start of our Club. Every ten years we hold a bigger event to which we also invite members from other clubs in the area.
We celebrate World Inner Wheel Day annually on January 10th together with members of Inner Wheel Clubs around the world. It was on this date in 1924 that the name Inner Wheel was adopted. In the past Club members have met together and invited Senior Citizens and those living alone for Lunch
During the year the Social Committee organise other events such as outings, theatre visits, lunches, shopping expeditions, etc., all of which, together with our Club Nights, help to promote true friendship between our Club Members
