About the Club:

The Inner Wheel Club of Grantham received its charter in 1962.

Grantham’s most famous son is Sir Isaac Newton who was born in nearby Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth on Christmas Day in 1642.  He was educated at the King’s School in Grantham before going on to Cambridge University and his theory of gravity is thought to have come from the observation of an apple falling from a tree in the grounds of his home, the Manor House at Woolsthorpe.

Mention should also be made of one of Grantham's most famous daughters Baroness Thatcher of Kesteven. Born Margaret Roberts above a grocer's shop in the town, she was educated at Huntingtower Road School and Kesteven & Grantham Girls' School, before going up to Oxford to study chemistry. She became the first research chemist ever to become Prime Minister (and the first woman to hold that appointment). The first woman police officer, Edith Smith, was also a Granthamian.
