Inner Wheel of Tavistock

December 2020

Member Chris Tout has been responsible for several years for sending get well messages to members of our club when appropriate, and generally looking after the wellbeing of members. Even before the pandemic struck, she visited members, did their shopping and organised shopping expeditions on the local Country Bus. Chris has been delivering a home cooked evening meal every day for over a year to one member of our club who can no longer manage to cook herself. Tavistock club also ring each member to have a chat every couple of weeks to ensure the spirit of friendship is kept alive as not everyone can join our zoom meetings.

Inner Wheel Liskeard and Looe

Liskeard and Looe club members started by considering an on-line photographic competition and then realised we could use the winning entries to produce a 2021 calendar. We are pleased to say that with fees from the photographic competition, sales of calendars and donations we have raised £1,000 for Cornwall Air Ambulance. Thank you for your support and all canendars have now been sold.

Inner Wheel Club of Bodmin

The ladies of Bodmin Inner Wheel Club have been undeterred by the current restrictions and have been meeting in small groups for socially distanced coffee mornings or afternoon tea at our local herb nursery cafe, this helps us to keep in touch and share ideas for support one another through the restrictions.

We have made Scrubs bags for our local hospital staff who were delighted to receive them, fabric face masks to protect ourselves and to sell to raise funds for The Smile Train Charity and our knitters have made 500 jumpers for overseas charities as well as blankets.

Our next project is to make heart cushions for breast cancer patients undergoing surgery, I am told that they are the ideal size and shape to provide comfort post-operatively.

Our ladies are taking part in a monthly raffle which also raises funds and provides a little excitement as we wait to find out who has won each month.

Lin has organised a walking group that has undertaken local walks along the Camel Trail here in Bodmin and a local history walk around the town. Julie, our Club Correspondent is writing a newsletter every few months to keep us up to date and we all talk regularly over the phone (no Zoom meetings yet but perhaps in the future we will try this).

So although we cannot meet as usual we are keeping in touch and supporting each other in many ways as is The Inner Wheel way.

We look forward to seeing our fellow Inner Wheel Clubs in the near future - Terri Young
