A tree commemorates the golden jubilee of the Inner Wheel Club.

Rotary was formed in 1905 in Chicago and soon spread to other countries. Many similar Clubs under various names were formed to help Rotarian husbands.

However, it was the Manchester Club which in 1924 provided the name and model rules upon which the Inner Wheel movement is based. The emblem is a small wheel contained within the Rotary Wheel, hence the name Inner Wheel. At an early stage in its existence Inner Wheel began to spread overseas and, in Australia, Ballarat, Victoria held the first interest meeting during 1931.
