District 12 Inner Wheel

Tunbridge Wells Inner Wheel Club

About our Club

We are please to announce that from September 2021 our meetings will return to 'normal', being held every third Tuesday of the month at Southborough Primary School, Broomhill Park Road, Southborough, TN4 0JY - 7:00 for 7:15 pm. For further information please use 'Contact Us' page. (This is temporary, and we may return to the Royal Wells Hotel in the New Year).

Our Fit and Friendly Walks 

Each month we organise a "Fit and Friendly" walk. This is a joint venture with our Rotary Club. We meet at a member's home and walk for approximately an hour (the "Fit" part) and then return for the "Friendly" part, coffee and a chat joined by non-walkers. 

The 'fit' part of our Fit and Friendly monthly walks with our Rotary partners.

One of our monthly 'Fit and Friendly' (socially distanced) walks.

Tea parties

During lockdown we started having tea parties with 6 people in a member's garden.  This proved so popular that is has now become a permanent part of our diary.

We held a very successful walking holiday with our Rotary partners, in Torquay during a wonderful week of sunshine in September.
