FROM DISTRICT CHAIRMAN HILARY GENES APRIL 2021
Hope you have been enjoying the beautiful sunshine. and are
all keeping well and have been able to meet your friends and
family in groups of 6 in gardens in the fresh air.
Hope you that some of you who registered have been able to enjoy
the Virtual IIW Convention coverage last weekend.
I dont know what you think, for those who watched it,
but I thought that it was fantastic.
It must have taken a lot of organisation to produce such a wonderful
Virtual experience in just two months.
Over 4000 people from all over the world have been honoured
to have watched the entire IIW Convention in Two days from the
comfort of our homes. There was so much to see and the staff
were very helpful. There were many exciting experiences eg Bollywood
Dance classes, Indian cooking classes , Yoga, the choice of
14 International dancers , Bazaars, with shops where one could
visit and purchase items with a discount, Virtual Tours of Delhi,
Accra and Jaipur.
The discussions on the Proposals from Key-note Speakers was
certainly very interesting, including the very poignant and
convincing Debates and Rights of Replies.
We look forward to hosting the IIWCentennial Convention in Manchester
in 2024, to countries from all over the World.
IIW President Bina did an excellent presentation of the entire
Convention and the Business sessions.
It was a good speech by Ebe Martines, our new IIW Vice President
We will have a lot of good objectives to look forward to in
We have certainly had good Leadership from Dr Binas motto
for her year Lead The Change and will make the next
year a lead into more changes to make a better place for women
and the elderly and for all the Districts and clubs in GB&I
and our International Inner Wheel friends all over the World.
Thank you all for joining in the IIW Convention and for all
those who registered. You will still be able to access the archives
in a few days.
Please read the email dated April 21 st, that District Treasurer,
Vanessa Hughes has sent clubs stating then, that the archives
would be available in a day or two and how to access the Convention.
It was an experience that we may never experience again.
Thank you for your hard work and support.
