About the club:

The Inner Wheel Club of Kettering was chartered in 1935 and is the oldest club in District 7.

Kettering is well known for Wicksteed Park which covers 100 acres. The land was purchased by Charles Wicksteed to create a pleasure park for the local people. Many of the traditional roundabouts have gone but in their place are more sophisticated rides.
