December 2021

A Note from Sue

As I type these words in readiness to send to Linda for inclusion in the Newsletter, it is in the most fervent hope, that we will be able to meet on the 16th December, and that many of you will feel safe enough to do so. The Pandemic continues to have huge consequences for us, but the last 20 months or so have also shown how we can rely on each other for support.

At the time of receiving this Newsletter, we will have resumed our 11.00 am Friday 'Coffee & Chat' Zoom meetings and these will continue for the foreseeable future. Here is the code for these meetings; it will not change so you may want to file it somewhere on your system or device for safekeeping

If you are not able to come along in person on the 16th December, on behalf of the Committee, I would like to send you all our very best wishes for Christmas and 2022.

Take good care and continue to stay safe.

With very best wishes,

Sue x
