About District 127

Welcome to District 127 where members of Inner Wheel enjoy the company of like-minded people.

We started life in 1985 when Clubs from District 4 and District 22 joined together to form District 127. We still have close links with our parent Districts, meeting up at Rallies and Conferences.

Our Clubs usually meets once a month with fun and fellowship high on the agenda. Our programmes include speakers, outings and special projects. We have strong links with local, national and overseas charities and members enjoy getting involved. We also work alongside our local Rotary Clubs on joint fundraising or community events.

Our Aims & Objectives

To promote true friendship
Clubs meet regularly and have a full and varied programme, including speakers on subjects of interest. By meeting regularly friendships are built and maintained. Meetings are often held with other Clubs, creating a wider circle of friends. The Annual Association Conference extends this circle even more.

To encourage the ideals of personal service
By working together as friends our Clubs have an outstanding record of personal service to the community.

To foster international understanding
Clubs support their own choice of overseas charities as well as their District and Association Overseas Service Chairman’s chosen charity. Clubs also support the International Inner Wheel service project. Many Clubs have a link with a Club overseas and meet every three years at the International Convention.

Social Links

District 127’s Past District Chairmen meet each year for lunch. This is the group that were able to get together in 2023.

Tessa’s Bikes for Brainstrust

District Chairman 2022-2023 Tessa cycled around Rutland Water in June to raise money for her Charity – brainstrust.

In a message to us all Tessa’s said: Yes I did do some practice cycle rides and, yes, you may well be surprised to know that the Wolds are hilly and I can freewheel the1.2 miles from the next hamlet, Mareham on the Hill, almost all the way back to number 36! However that did not really prepare me for the Hambledon Peninsular that forms the hilly part of Rutland Water! Sue from Woodhall Spa IW and her husband Rod were my support team. . The weather was perfect, the water blue and sparkling and yes, I did do it. Thank you everyone for your support.
