District 6 lies in the Heart of England drawing its membership from Warwickshire, West Midlands, parts of Worcestershire and Staffordshire. It has 17 Clubs with a membership of just under 500. It is just a small part of International Inner Wheel, one of the largest women's organisations in the world.
Inner Wheel is an all female organisation
There are Three Objectives:
To promote true friendship
To encourage the ideals of personal service
To foster international understanding
FRIENDSHIP with SERVICE truly reflects a typical Inner Wheel Member. If you are not a member, why not join us and enjoy helping those in your community or overseas.
The Association of Inner Wheel Clubs is like a wedding cake with tiers – the largest and most important tier is at grass roots level with a Club, near you, in most towns and cities and large villages. Many Clubs have corresponding Rotary Clubs. The next tier is at District level – there are 29 Districts that make up Great Britain and Ireland (GB&I). The third tier is the GB&I Association; with a Governing Body and Executive Members representing all corners of Great Britain and Ireland. The fourth tier is International Inner Wheel, which represents 98,000 members from all the Inner Wheel Clubs in 103 Countries around the world.
Inner Wheel Badge
Here in the compass of my hand, I hold
This treasured badge – a little wheel of gold.
Symbol of service, emblem of a band
Of women pledged to lend a helping hand:
To cross the barriers of creed and race
And seek to make the world a better place:
To help the under-privileged and sad,
The homeless and the hungry, cold and ill clad:
To forge the links of friendship East and West,
Each with her talents, giving of her best.
Friendship and service in a thousand varying ways –
This round the world, our little badge portrays.
So small a thing, with influence so wide.
No wonder that we wear our badge with pride.
