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 24 clubs in the District with around 750 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
Dear Fellow Members,
As I write this, Spring is most definitely in the air and the Covid vaccination rollout is progressing well, so although we’re still living with restrictions for now, I’m sure either the light is getting brighter or the tunnel is getting shorter! However you look at it - there is reason to be hopeful at last.
It’s been a roller coaster of a year since we met last March and although I appreciate the easing of restrictions is going to be a gradual and cautious process, I’m really looking forward to getting back to a more normal way of life and especially to be able to meet up with all my Inner Wheel friends.
Clubs across our District have certainly risen to the many challenges we’ve faced together this year and I’m so proud to have been your District Chairman again. We’ve all had some interesting experiences, a few unexpected problems and we’ve had to learn some new skills along the way. So well done!
Thank you for your fantastic support. I’m looking forward to seeing you soon as its possible but in the meantime – take care & stay safe.
In friendship & with best wishes
During the various lockdowns, and in line with the varying COVID19 restrictions, members have participated in socially distanced activites - meeting up in small numbers where and when they can - in gardens, poly tunnels, going for walks or meeting for coffee.
These have been created by members of the Stirling Club using acrylics and varnish. Each has a character of its own and they have been donated to patients at local hospitals, as part of the Forth Valley Comfort Stones Project
WELL DONE ALL CLUBS in DISTRICT 1
A message of thanks was received from Scott Maxwell, STV's Community and Fund Raising Manager for the District's generous donation to this year's STV Children's Appeal. Donations like this make such a difference to the 1 in 4 children living in Scotland in poverty.
