Once a month we meet for our "Knit and Natter" afternoon. We knit for various charities, making 'fidget' sleeves for dementia suffers, 'fish and chip' tunics and caps for new-borns for countries where the mothers have nothing to wrap their new babies in except newspapers, scarves etc. for the homeless, and so on. However, we mostly natter - knitting if not very prominent at these get-togethers. We now meet in Marsha's lovely garden (weather permitting) or indoors, and she provides delicious home-made cakes and tea or coffee. In July we were joined by Eleanor Wingrove, who recently moved from Cornwall, and was encouraged by one of our members, Helen to contact her local Inner Wheel Club. She subsequently was admitted to Solihull I.W. Eleanor was visiting Helen, so came to our Knit and Natter afternoon and was welcomed by all members present

I.W. Truro
The Inner Wheel of Truro recently celebrated its 77th birthday at the Alverton Manor. Our first birthday celebration for two years without the threat of cancellation from the Pandemic!

After lunch we enjoyed a talk by Liam Shoesmith an award winning horticulturist. Liam has a passion for plants and design and as Head Gardener and Deputy Parks Manager for Truro City Council has been involved in the design work of flower beds throughout the city.

You can see from the smiling faces around the table what a joy it was to be enjoying an afternoon together with an interesting speaker. We were also delighted to welcome two new members Joyce and Jane and they are photographed with joint Presidents Maureen and Beryl and Vice President Yvonne.

An Auspicious Evening Meeting for the Inner Wheel Roborough Ladies.

On Wednesday 23rd February the President of Inner Wheel Roborough Jan Dickman handed over a cheque for £2,345.00 to Miranda Benney the manager of the Mustard Tree Macmillan Support Services. This money had been raised by the ladies throughout the year.

Through personal experience Jan knew the wonderful work that the Mustard tree provides and chose them as her charity of the year.

Miranda gave a very informative talk about the work carried out by both professional and volunteer workers. They have a holistic approach for those people in need of support as they transition through cancer treatment. They provide practical support and complimentary therapies to help both the patient and their families face any fears they may have. They have continued to give advice right through the pandemic with phone call appointments, video appointment and the use of zoom. They have a facebook page and use Twitter, you can even have a virtual coffee and a chat.

A wonderful service for which we are very grateful. Thank you to all and all of the people involved in the Mustard Tree.

Inner Wheel of Roborough
The first Inner Wheel Roborough meeting of the year and we so enjoyed it. Our speaker this evening was the amazing Helen West, amazing because Helen has recently completed the 1011 mile cycle ride from Lands End to John O Groats. She spent 91 hours cycling and raised £12,000 in the process. Peak Tours were behind the scene and arranged everything so our lady was supported, along with others from morning to night. Helen had to complete a gruelling 10 week training program. She was not able to take her bike so hired one from Peak Tours but with her own saddle and pedals.
Helen told us that she did not look at the whole distance but concentrated on 20 miles then there would be a Tea break, 20miles and Lunch, 20 miles and afternoon tea,20 miles and Dinner, even if the distance between stops was more. Helen had it sorted in her mind that she could do this and do it she did. An incredible feat that not many of us would even think of let alone do. A fantastic epic journey which Helen told with such flair and comic timing.
Helen also presented our president Jan Dickman with a cheque as a thank you for the support the Inner Wheel of Roborough had given to Roborough Rotary during the Christmas Sleigh event. Monies collected go to local charities.

Inner Wheel Roborough
Inner wheel Roborough ladies enjoyed a very special get together to celebrate a grand birthday. Friendship and fun plus raising of some monies. We brought along scarves, some of which were sold, and learnt how to wear them in different ways. We also prepared all our used Christmas stamps ready to go to charity. Of course there was a lovely lunch which we all enjoyed. Grateful thanks to Penny for hosting the event. We all took flow tests before gathering together.
