Welcome to the Inner Wheel Club of Arbury


About the Club:

The Inner Wheel Club of Arbury was chartered in June 1979 and is based in Nuneaton which is a Warwickshire town very close to the geographical centre of England and George Eliot country.

The name Arbury comes from the local Arbury Hall, known as the Gothic Gem of the Midlands, and the home of the Newdigate family for centuries.  The author George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) was born in 1819 on the Arbury Estate and lived in Griff House (now a hotel) for 21 years.  She is commemorated in many ways in the town.  The large George Eliot Hospital and the nearby Mary Ann Evans Hospice are living memorials to her and her book titles and their characters feature widely as names in the town, the schools and hospital wards.  There is a nice statue to her memory in the town centre.

The Inner Wheel Club of Arbury is a very active and friendly club and we enjoy meeting at the monthly club meetings where during a meal we can socialise and enjoy each other’s company.  This is usually followed by an interesting speaker and any news or plans for forthcoming events are announced.  Many other members share the responsibility of planning the events which provides further opportunities for fellowship and fun!

We have close ties with Arbury Rotary Club and this is to the benefit of both clubs when organising social or charity events. We also welcome members from the surrounding area.
