I am Cornish
and retired here four 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 president 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. Hilary visited us on the
24th May 2022, she gave such a lovely talk to us all and we were
delighted to present her with a cheque for £90 for her charity

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

type of calendar to be produced with the winning photos.
