District 129 covers Plymouth, Roborough, Tavistock all of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly

 


Our first 'real' District meeting since Christmas 2019 was held at Trethorne, near Launceston, on Thursday 16th September. A good attendance of 54 smiling ladies all enjoying being dressed up with somewhere to go, at last, and ready to enjoy the excellent meal.

All covid protocols were observed, plenty of ventilation, masks were worn when moving around but not needed when seated. The photos are mainly of the early birds, as once the room started filling up it wasn't fair to be moving around very much.

District Chairman Hilary hopes to see even more at the District rally at Lanhydrock Hotel and Golf Club on 10th November when we will have the opportunity to hear from Association President Betty Roberts.

LETTER FROM DISTRICT CHAIRMAN HILARY GENES APRIL 2021

Dear Ladies

Hope you have been enjoying the beautiful sunshine. and are all keeping well and have been able to meet your friends and family in groups of 6 in gardens in the fresh air.

Hope you that some of you who registered have been able to enjoy the Virtual IIW Convention coverage last weekend.
I don’t know what you think, for those who watched it, but I thought that it was fantastic.

It must have taken a lot of organisation to produce such a wonderful Virtual experience in just two months.
Over 4000 people from all over the world have been honoured to have watched the entire IIW Convention in Two days from the comfort of our homes. There was so much to see and the staff were very helpful. There were many exciting experiences eg Bollywood Dance classes, Indian cooking classes , Yoga, the choice of 14 International dancers , Bazaars, with shops where one could visit and purchase items with a discount, Virtual Tours of Delhi, Accra and Jaipur.
The discussions on the Proposals from Key-note Speakers was certainly very interesting, including the very poignant and convincing Debates and Rights of Replies.

We look forward to hosting the IIWCentennial Convention in Manchester in 2024, to countries from all over the World.
IIW President Bina did an excellent presentation of the entire Convention and the Business sessions.
It was a good speech by Ebe Martines, our new IIW Vice President from Italy.
We will have a lot of good objectives to look forward to in the future.

We have certainly had good Leadership from Dr Bina’s motto for her year “Lead The Change” and will make the next year a lead into more changes to make a better place for women and the elderly and for all the Districts and clubs in GB&I and our International Inner Wheel friends all over the World.

Thank you all for joining in the IIW Convention and for all those who registered. You will still be able to access the archives in a few days.

Please read the email dated April 21 st, that District Treasurer, Vanessa Hughes has sent clubs stating then, that the archives would be available in a day or two and how to access the Convention.

It was an experience that we may never experience again.
Thank you for your hard work and support.
Love
Hilaryx
