I.W. Club of Liskeard and Looe
President Ruth Roach

Here I am again for a second year as President of Liskeard & Looe Inner Wheel.

I am Cornish and retired here five years ago to be close to my Mum. I became a member of Inner Wheel because of the warm welcome shown by other members. My husband, Paul is a member of Looe Valley Rotary.

We have two children, both married. Two of our grandchildren live in Northern Ireland and three in Virginia, USA. I was a teacher of French and spanish and later became an office manager. We have lived in Cheshire, Afghanistan and India. I enjoy cooking, walking and helping refugees to learn English.

60th Anniversary of the Formation of Inner Wheel Liskeard and Looe

Due to the pandemic, our 60th Birthday was put on hold from March 2020 and finally celebrated 18 months later, on October 9th 2021 at the Hannafore Point Hotel, Looe. Special guests included our District charman Hilary Genes, our founder member Margaret Shepherd who cut the cake, and our own Pat Richards, who was presented with the Honorary Members Award. We also welcomed several members from other clubs in District 129.
However, the real guest of honour was Teddy, who joined in all the proceedings and presentations, and even joined the entertainment at the end !!

We are a club of 30, with many of our members having to “shield" during this pandemic and continue to do so. We have continued with zoom committee and group meetings and have had two attempts at organising socially distanced meetings, the first was cancelled due to the weather and the 2nd as the "rule of six” came in.

We organised a photographic competition in Aid of Cornwall Air Ambulance and are now in the process of putting a calendar together, A4 which drops to A3. The calendar will cost £5, With most of the profits going to the Air Ambulance. With this in mind, If other clubs would consider a bulk order, then we are happy for them to contact us with a view to reducing the cost of the calendar so that they can make some money for their own club charities.

We are hoping to get more speakers in our group meetings starting this Tuesday 22nd, with a speaker from “Medical Detection Dogs”. We continue to work together, contact our members regularly and posting minutes and information to those whom do not have internet access. Many of our members have managed to safely get together during the summer in their gardens for morning coffee, lunch and afternoon tea.
