PRESIDENT 2023- 2024


This is the second time I will have been President of the Helston-Lizard Inner Wheel and I hope I will be able to give the position the time it deserves.

My husband and I travel widely and are often out of the country for 15/16 weeks of the year, preferring independent and adventurous travel, often to Africa. I am sure the Club will be very supportive in my frequent absences!

When home, I enjoy oil painting, regular Pilates sessions and I can often be found walking my two labradors on the coast. I am also kept very busy with my family which includes 12 grandchildren!

For many years I have been a member of the Board of Trustees, and now Vice -Chair, of BF Adventure - a charity which supports young people who are disaffected, disadvantaged and disabled across Cornwall and beyond.

Members went to see a Gin Distillery " Pocket Full of Stones "at Penzance just before Christmas and enjoyed the experience!!

Report 2018 - 2019

At our December meeting members brought and wrapped presents for onward transmission to the women's refuge in Penzance which were greatly appreciated. We also made a donation to the Salvation Army in lieu of exchanging Christmas cards.
Inner Wheel Day was celebrated with a walk and lunch, provided by Wendy Wallis, with donations in aid of Parkinson's. As in previous years the weather was kind to us!
Drinks and nibbles at the home of Debbie Osborne raised some much needed funds for Bishop's Forum, and was enjoyed by all.
In March Members, friends and family had their minds exercised at a Murder Mystery evening at Rosewarne Manor, taking on the role of sleuths and raising money for our President's chosen charity Sea Sanctuary.
This was shortly followed by a visit to the "escape room" at Newlyn, a truly unforgettable experience.
The annual Bluebell Walk and lunch at the home of Joy Porch was once again enjoyed by all.
A coffee morning to support a pre-school in Mozambique was extremely successful, and our busy year was topped off with a most entertaining Car Treasure Hunt, followed by a cream tea at Anne Russell's.
We have been lucky to enjoy a variety of speakers at our monthly meetings including; a talk by a Street Pastor, and some very interesting slide shows.
  Helston/Lizard had an interesting talk on St Petroc's and Sarah Corbridge,our President, presented Lois Wild from St Petrocs presents and useful items donated by Club members. Members are all getting ready for our "sleeping rough" on Saturday 7 December 2019 to experience the way the homeless live and cope with the cold temperatures at night.
