Inner Wheel District 1 is the most northern of the 29 Districts that make up the Association of Inner Wheel Clubs in GB&I. It covers most of the north and east of Scotland. There are 25 clubs in the District with around 800 members. All clubs have a formal meeting each month with social and fund raising activities during the month. None of the clubs meet formally in July and August.
A message from District Chairman Lesley Niven
In line with Government Guidance, all Inner Wheel Clubs in District 1 have been advised to suspend Club meetings and other get-togethers until further notice. The District Bridge and Golf Competitions and the Belfast Conference are all cancelled and the District 1 Rally has been postponed until 1 October.
These are challenging times but I hope members will find ways to keep in touch and look out for each other and other vulnerable members of their community.
Please stay safe & well.
Yours in friendship
Welcome from District Chairman Lesley Niven
Dear Fellow Members,
I’m writing this before our AGM in Dundee and in anticipation of my year as Chairman of District 1. There is so much to look forward to with the Association Assembly in Leicester in July, our own get together in Pitlochry in August, my visits to your Clubs throughout the coming year, District & Executive Meetings, the Conference in Belfast and various Rallies.
It’s going to be a busy year but it’s all very exciting. I’m looking forward to it and I’m so grateful for the trust you’ve put in me and for your friendship and support.
I was invited to join the Inner Wheel Club of Stirling in 2007 when the rules were relaxed. It was great timing as I’d only recently moved back to Scotland after living and working in the South East and suddenly found myself new friends and interests. Inner Wheel has now become a huge part of my life and I honestly believe the more you give, the greater the rewards in terms of friendship and of course, fun! So, I’m looking forward to promoting Inner Wheel at every opportunity I get during my year in office.
With my very best wishes & in friendship
