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.

 Retiring President Gill has completed a very enjoyable and successful year.

Gill arranged various events including a supper with entertainment, a beetle drive and a fashion show.All proceeds have been donated to the Alzheimers Society. Some of our members made Christmas and Easter decorations which were sold to increase the amount given.

Our International Officer, Chrissie,  organised our annual tea and hunger lunch raising funds  for many Overseas Charities.

Gill has now handed over the Presidential Chain to Lorraine Burton, President for 2019/20. 

Lorraine's charity for the year is Autistic Children Embraced (ACE). This is a local monthly support group for parents, offering help, support, information and friendship.
