TRURO - JUBILEE PARADE - 3 June 2022
Hilary Genes, Chairman of Inner Wheel District 129
   
  I attended the Jubilee Parade at Truro to represent Inner Wheel 129 District on Thursday 1 June 2022. It was a great honour to be chosen and I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to honour our Majesty the Queen, along with other dignitaries and members of the public, in my role as Inner Wheel District Chairman to advertise our Organisation. I was accompanied by my fiance and our President of Liskeard and Looe and her husband who was the President of the Rotary Club of Liskeard and Looe.

The people of Coornwall paraded the streets of Truro to celebrate the Queen's 70 years of dedicated service to us all. We thank her Majesty for her service and for leading the Nation and the Commonwealth with principles and values which shape and guide our society. Let us send Her Majesty our heartiest congratulations on this auspicious occasion.

With everyone gathered in High Cross, the Dean welcomed everyone and said prayers and hymns, led by the City of Truro Male choir, a reading. Mr James Williams represented the Lord-Lieutenant (who had Covid), the Bishop of Truro and the Mayor of Truro gave their appreciation of the Queen.
A Jubilee Celebration by Gareth Churcher, performed by St Kevern Youth Band. The Dean then led the prayers and followed by resounding renditions of the Trelawney led by the City of Truro Male Choir.

Congratulations from all the Members of District 129
 


 

As I am sure you are aware, National President Betty Roberts has challenged all the members to walk 2.5 miles each this year, which would equate to Land's End to John O'Groats, in support of the Stroke Association.
She has had a teddy made who will visit each District to help with advertising this .

Vanessa offered to start the event off in style by taking him to Land's End and attached is a photo with a short write up and his 'postcard' home!!
Vanessa has also had a teddy made in IW colours to visit each of our clubs in the District to hopefully be photographed at various events, so I would like to think that we could get a good run of reports of this,



 
Presidents Vanessa and Sue of Perranzabuloe and Redruth were delighted to take Teddy down to Land's End to start him off on his tour of UK to raise awareness of both Inner Wheel and the Stroke Association. Teddy hopes to be able to raise some funds at the same time.
Keep an eye on the association Facebook page to follow some more of his adventures as he encourages the Inner Wheel members on their virtual walk from Land's End to John O'Groats.

He also sent his first virtual postcard to his 'Mum' Betty Roberts

 

Hello Mum,
Today I travelled in a car, not a box, it was great!
The weather has been hot here but this evening it was warm and comfortable.
The sea, stretching out behind me was calm and the air was still.
President Sue Norfolk of Redruth and President Vanessa Hughes of Perranzabuloe were careful not to drop me over the edge.
We stopped at Marazion beach on the way home and I saw St Michael's Mount.
See you soon
Teddy
