Inner Wheel Club of Retford

by | 1 February 2024 | Inner Wheel, Retford, Social Group

2024 is the Centenary Year of the Inner Wheel Association. In 1924 Inner Wheel was founded by Margarette Golding (a nurse) in Manchester. Now there are 100,000 members in 100 countries worldwide.

In the Centenary Year, Inner Wheel’s International President is Trish Douglas from Melrose in Scotland and the theme for the year is ‘Shine a Light’. The Centenary convention will be held in Manchester, which is very appropriate.

All clubs have monthly fellowship meetings to further group aims of friendship, personal service and international understanding. The lovely Margarette Golding centenary rose was launched at the 2023 Chelsea Flower Show.

Retford Inner Wheel group meets at Ye Olde Bell on the second Thursday of every month at 5.30pm for 6.00pm. After a meal they usually have a speaker or an activity, and this month they are hosting District Chairman Mary Hinds. Mary will bring the group to date on future plans and events in the District (East Midlands District 22).

Guests are always very welcome. For more information, email
