District 20

Inner Wheel in Somerset, Wilts and Dorset

Welcome to Inner Wheel District 20 which covers the whole of Somerset, most of Dorset and a bit of West Wiltshire!

There are sixteen Clubs scattered throughout the District so there will definitely be one near you.   
Scroll down to the Clubs list and map, pick a club to visit and send us an email with the name of the club in the subject, so that we can send you to the right person.

We love visitors and are delighted to meet new ladies.

You’ll be pleased to hear that there is no age limit so long as you are over18 years, have lots of enthusiasm, want to meet people, make new friends and would like to help the community either locally, nationally and/or internationally.

But perhaps the most important of all
we like to enjoy ourselves,
whatever we may be doing!

Inner Wheel is in over
100 Countries

Who do you know who lives in another country?

One of the joys of Inner Wheel Membership is the welcome we receive when visiting clubs overseas and we love to welcome members from abroad when they visit Britain

Who we Support

Association President Anthea’s Charity of the Year is BEAT and on their website they tell you that there are about 1.25 million people in the UK of all ages, genders and backgrounds, suffer from eating disorders.  This is very much a hidden problem and many members will have seen this in their own families and friends.

The International fund-raising project we are supporting is to provide an additional Book Bus to be used in Zambia.

The District 20 Year

The District Golf Tournament

Awards Night!

Two members from the District were nominated by their clubs for services over and above the ‘norm’ as you can see from the Certificates

These were to Eileen Davies from Chard and Janet Thornborough from Shepton Mallet – both such worthy recipients. Congratulations from us all!


The District Picnic

Another lovely evening! For those who have not been to the Picnic, do not expect to be eating out of a picnic bag out in the open! The photos will give you the gist!

Wonderful evening organised by Rita Jolliffe, with the guest speaker being Pam Boyes, the Association International Chairman, telling us about The Book Bus Foundation and the great support provided to it by the Clubs in GB&I this year.

We always enjoy running one of the Tea Tents at
Home Farm Fest

It’s such a great family festival and families return year after year (both to HFF and to our Tea Tent!)

So put it in your diary for next year 7th-9th June 2024
Volunteers and cakes will be required
