Where do we meet?

Dunfermline Inner Wheel is part of Inner Wheel District 1, and we meet at Garvock House Hotel, St John’s Drive,  Dunfermline  KY12 7TU.  Meetings are held at 7pm on the third Thursday of the month.   No formal meetings are held in July & August but coffee mornings, fundraising and social events continue throughout the year.

Our Club 

Dunfermline is one of the oldest clubs in our District.  Chartered in 1946 we celebrated our 75th Birthday last year.   We currently have 31 members

As well as the monthly meetings members enjoy coffee mornings, knitting, regular walks and outings as well as fundraising for local and international projects.

Our City – Dunfermline

Dunfermline is now a city granted by the Queen as part of her Diamond Jubilee celebrations – quite appropriate as it has been a Royal Burgh since 1588 – granted by James VI.

We have a beautiful Abbey with the heart of Robert the Bruce buried within. Also within the Abbey is a beautiful Tiffany window recently rehoused there for all to see and admire.

We have a large park in the centre of the city – gifted to Dunfermline by one of its most famous sons Andrew Carnegie.  It is called Pittencrieff Park but all the locals call it the Glen.  Andrew Carnegie gave it to the town because as a boy he could only look over the wall as it was owned by a very wealthy family. There are peacocks in this park but they are allowed to roam free and sometimes you will meet one walking up the High Street.

We also have Carnegie Hall (before New York had one) Carnegie swimming baths and Library so you see he was very good to the town of his birth.

New Member

New member Jane Benson was inducted in April – welcome to Inner Wheel!  

“Shining a Light”

At the November meeting our tables were decorated by empty gin bottles collected and decorated by Claire, one of the Clubs members, following the Gin Festival organised by the local Rotary Club. The decorated bottles were sold to raise money for the club’s charity fund. Shining a Light indeed !

Helping out at the Gin Festival 

The club maintains a strong link with Dunfermline Rotary and there are always lots of willing helpers at at their Charity Gin Festival.

Christmas Cheer 

Members enjoyed an evening of Christmas Cheer at the home of President Wendy, singing carols round the piano a visit from Santa.
