KAREN MOSELEY
PRESIDENT 2021- 2022

 

I joined the Inner Wheel in 2016 when my husband Kevin became a Member of Helston-Lizard Rotary Club. I was born on a farm just outside Helston, and then moved into the town 36 years ago when we married, and am still here! We have two children, both of whom are married and live nearby, and a recent addition of a lovely granddaughter who was born in November. I started working for Nat West Bank in 1985, and finished 3 years ago, spending the entire period in the Helston Branch (almost becoming part of the fixtures and fittings!). I enjoy walking with family and friends, reading, and travelling (although the latter has been severely curtailed over the last 18 months). I am looking forward to my year as President, my principal aim being to have a year of friendship and fellowship. I think we are all really looking forward to face to face meetings, as opposed to having to make do with "Zoom", and I sincerely hope that everyone will be happy to return as soon as we are permitted with renewed enthusiasm.

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.
