District Meeting - Trethorne Golf Club 8 March 2024
Members met at Trethorne Golf Club Friday 8 March and had an inspiration talk by Dr Maria McLain Chairwoman of the Board of The Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust

District Chairman Bea suggested that our Spring District meeting should be held on International Women's Day in celebration of women everywhere and all that we accomplish.

73 ladies gathered at Trethorne, near Launceston , from all corners of Cornwall, Plymouth and Tavistock to hear our guest speaker Dr Mairi McLean who gave us an entertaining but thought provoking insight into her life and career starting out as a trainee social worker and coming, by quite an indirect but always challenging route, to her current role as Chairman of the Board of The Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust.

Mairi detailed some of the many obstacles put in her way, and the way of many women in the workplace, and the importance of a 'good listening to' rather than a 'good talking to' when issues arose in the workplace, and to be aware not only how you spoke but how you sounded to others, particularly to junior colleagues, a smile was a good start.

After a few minutes for questions and discussion we all adjourned to the dining room for an excellent lunch.

The business meeting was held at 2pm and thanks to Bea's leadership it was all done and dusted by 3.05pm.
Afternoon tea was then served, followed by an inter-club bowling tournament.

The next District gathering will be a day at Pencarrow house near Bodmin on Wednesday May 15th, where they are looking forward to welcoming us tocelebrate 100 years of Inner Wheel, with a tour of the house and a private garden area for a celebration picnic to be followed by birthday cake and prosecco, Sunshine has been requested.
