About our Club

Deal Inner Wheel Club has a membership of 35 and we usually meet at lunchtimes at the Deal 1919 Angling Club on Deal's seafront on the first Monday of the month, except August or unless it is a Bank Holiday. Occasionally meetings are held at a chosen restaurant.

At our meetings we enjoy the company and friendship of each other whilst sharing lunch, organising fundraising activities and listening to speakers. We raise funds for local, national and international charities. We also support Deal Rotary Club with their charity projects and join them for social gatherings. We celebrate our 80th birthday this year.

A coffee morning is held every month, usually in a members' home with the proceeds going to a chosen charity.

We organise social outings to places of interest to members.
