About the Club

We are a ladies club of 13 members of varying ages. The club was formed in 1979. Originally Inner Wheel was an Association of women who were related to Rotarians, however in latter years the membership rules have been relaxed and modernised, and we are able to recruit new members who are interested in joining. We still have some rapport with the Rotary Club and are invited to some of their functions and help with fund raising which is mostly local. 

Meetings are still monthly, sometimes with a speaker but now on ZOOM because of lockdown. They are friendly and relaxed, but events at a member's home with food to share as we all like, are temporarily suspended. At present with COVID restrictions, ZOOM which is fun, helps to keep us in touch for social communication, especially good for those who are living alone.            

We have beautiful masks that are for sale (made by our President), with profits going to local charities. Please contact us if you would like photos of samples. 3.50 each inclusive of p&p.


Stamps are also collected as we pass these on to the Leprosy Mission, from which they raise funds.

Gillingham is just one club of many worldwide totalling over 98,000 members and Inner Wheel can be found in 104 countries. If you feel you would enjoy our company and have a sense of belonging, please do contact us. 

About the Town

Gillingham is the most northerly town in Dorset and has a thriving and active community. We are the most westerly club in the District and situated in the outstandingly beautiful countryside of the Blackmore Vale. The town has good transport links being 4 miles from the A303 the main road to London and the West Country. By rail, we have links with Exeter and Salisbury and the London trains arrive at Waterloo.

We hope you are inspired to find out more about us and visit us at one of our meetings to see if you like what you find there, please contact us via the Contact us form, including the name of our Club in your message.

We look forward to hearing from you.
