Ascot Inner Wheel  celebrates its 53rd anniversary in 2016, and is a member of the Association of Inner Wheel Clubs which are part of the family of Rotary.

They meet monthly on the fourth Wednesday evening at Mill Ride Golf Club, in Ascot, to enjoy dinner and often, a speaker or presentation. If there is a fifth Wednesday in the month, we join with Ascot Rotary for dinner and a speaker.

There are usually two major fund-raising events a year, together with Inner Wheel Day in January. Other events include trips to gardens, the theatre and other venues.

The three objects of Inner Wheel are very simple. They are to promote true friendship, encourage the ideals of personal service and to foster international understanding. Inner Wheel is a caring organisation, not only to its members, but also to others outside its circle.

Friendship is the core of all that is done and achieved by members of Inner Wheel. Wherever there is an Inner Wheel Club, no matter in which country, you are made very welcome. Friendship and fun abounds as members work together to help others less fortunate than themselves, not only in this country, but overseas.

Membership is open to all women who share in our ideals of service and friendship. We offer a valuable outlet for women of like mind who are searching for a way to provide voluntary service.

ASPEN, the Ascot Peace Education Network, began meeting prior to this country’s last conflict, euphemistically termed by the UK media Gulf War 2. It has been constituted as an independent voluntary organisation. It aims to build upon the tremendous concern felt by everyone about the war in Iraq. People worldwide, particularly the young, have woken up with a renewed intention to engage In peace building, by resolving conflict, and the group aims to actively promote peace and understanding through educational visits to schools, informed debates, entertaining neighbours with hospitality teas or lunches so improving relationships where we live.  The group meets formally every quarter and plans to invite experienced peace activists to inspire us. Strictly speaking it is not a Christian only group although many of its members worship at All Saints Church. It is not a political organisation only humanitarian.
