Dear Members of Inner Wheel,

Happy Birthday Inner Wheel! If everything was as 'normal' we would be getting dressed in our finery now and setting out for the Alverton Manor. It was lovely to receive President Anita's correspondence about the Birthday Lunch and I am sure we will all be celebrating it … although in isolation… with glasses at the ready. It's a wonderful organisation, especially in times like these, and long may it continue.
Just a thought; some of us, being older, might be more vulnerable than the young but don't forget we are more resilient to all the changes we have to face. We are used to being at home, many of us alone for some part of each day. We have faced many difficulties, even wars. Some have lost loved ones and we cannot manage to do all the things we did when we were younger. However we know how to cook simple meals, grow vegetables and knit and sew. Who knows how useful our 'make do and mend' skills will prove to be?

Here is a piece a friend sent about sunflowers. I hope you enjoy it:

Sunflowers turn according to the position of the sun. In other words, they "chase the light." You might already know this, but there is another fact that you probably do not know! Have you ever wondered what happens on cloudy and rainy days when the sun is completely covered by clouds???
This is an interesting question. Isn't it?
Perhaps you think the sunflower withers or turns its head towards the ground. Is this what crossed your mind?
Well, that's incorrect! This is what happens?
They turn towards each other to share their energy.
Nature's perfection is amazing. Now let's apply this reflection to our lives. Many people may become low-spirited, and the most vulnerable ones, sometimes, become depressed.

How about following the example of the beautiful sunflowers i.e. "Supporting and empowering each other". Nature has so much to teach us.
Wishing everyone a "Sun flower" trait of turning towards each other on cloudy and gloomy days. Spread goodness...it will come back to you.
Sarah Chaplain, Royal Cornwall hospital, Treliske, suggested on Spotlight that we all write a letter to a patient who cannot access visitors at the moment. They will laminate the letters and distribute to patients. Please refrain from saying anything about 'getting better' etc as sadly some patients will not recover. A notelet or one side of writing paper would be ideal. The address is:

Beatrice sent this photo of the pot we gave her to mark her year. She has planted it with tulips and thanks everyone again. A lasting treasure that will capture the seasons.

President Anita Bryce thanks the staff of "White Stuff" Truro

In November the Inner Wheel Club of Truro hosted a Beauty and Fashion evening at Carnon Downs Village Hall. The event proved to be a 'sell out' raising funds for the Cornwall Refuge Trust and other Inner Wheel charities. The audience was treated to a highly amusing and informative hair-dressing display from new Truro salon, 'S-J Hair'. A model's hair was cut into a new style (and it proved to be a transformation!), elements of hair care were explained, myths about the many hair products we all purchase were dispelled, and our questions were answered by the stylist and the colour technician. After refreshments, staff from Truro White Stuff took to the stage and gave a riveting talk about their new autumn collection. The audience came away knowing more about 'dressing to suit your shape', dressing confidently and adding style with stunning accessories. The manager explained how the White Stuff company is run on highly ethical lines such as providing education for the children of parents who work in the factories in India, fair trade wages are paid and working conditions are monitored closely, Furthermore, much of the cotton used for their garments is grown and produced organically using less water and chemicals. Everyone was impressed to hear that this high street store is bringing fashion to our city centre of Truro whilst furthering the ethics of fair trade in their factories abroad.
