District 12 Inner Wheel

Folkestone Inner Wheel Club

About our Club

We meet on the first Wednesday of each month (excluding August, December and January) at Wards Hotel, Earls Avenue Folkestone 6.30 for 6.45pm for a two course meal.  Each meeting varies from a business meeting to a meeting with a local speaker.  These events are interspersed with other fun activities and fund raising events during the year.

The aim of the club is to enjoy the friendship of nearly thirty members through our monthly meetings, various outings and social events whilst raising money for local, national and international charities.  

The current Folkestone President Doreen's charity for this year is The 5th Trust, at Barham, Kent, which gives experience, including woodwork, pottery, arts & crafts, and cookery, plus a garden centre, to adults with special needs.  For the time being, charity fundraising is limited due to Covid-19, although suggestions for individual ways to contribute to club good causes have been made.  

Past President Marion Bonomy  -  Following the recent sad death of long-serving member and much valued Past President, Marion Bonomy, the club benevolent fund has been fortunate to benefit from very generous donations from her family and friends.

We welcome any ladies wishing to find out more about our club and Inner Wheel.

01 July  President's Handover held in Past President Ann's garden with six socially distanced members present. 

All monthly general and dinner meetings with speakers have been postponed until Covid-19 restrictions allow such face-to-face meetings to go ahead, although socially distanced outdoor meetings of maximum six members are taking place whilst weather permits.  With regret, other social events and district functions, plus the annual Association Conference have been cancelled until further notice.  Club committee meetings are being held via Zoom.
