We are continuing to publish the newsletter and update the website during the Covid-19 break. If you have articles that you think would be interesting about how to cope with this pandemic, how you are keeping in contact with others or a short story or two, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Another month and the Pandemic still hasn’t reached its peak. So, we continue to stay put and keep looking after ourselves.
On Wednesday 22nd of July 16 members met in the Gardens near the Art Gallery for lunch, chats & laughter.
We were blessed with a beautiful sunny winter’s day. It was agreed we need to do it again, so are looking forward to meeting together in the gardens on a Wine Appreciation day (4th Wednesday) after the Stage 3 reductions announced on Sunday 2 August are lifted.
Zoom Meetings are a wonderful way of staying in touch. If any member would like to learn more about Zoom, give me a call 0412263071 and we may be able to help to get you up and Zooming.
Stay safe and sound. Enjoy the little things - a warm bed and a sunny day.
Keeping in touch
Our Newsletter provides a wonderful way of keeping in touch. In addition, convenors Margaret Jenkins Investment, John Lloyd Sustainability and Jane Rushworth Demystifying Psychology engage with members by Zoom. “It has been a fun way to keep our minds active as well as offering social stimulation”. Joy Shirley uses email to keep in contact with her groups Creative Writing and Film and Literature, Music Appreciation convenor Bill Squire emails and distributes session notes with You Tube links, while As Time Goes By members share story collections on the ‘Our Stories’ page. Pauline Bailey and Horst Gunther even set homework for the German class! Finally, Avid Facebook users and photographers Andi Stevenson and Bev Thornell post news and photographs of Birdwatching, Easy Walks & Mid-Week Walks activities on our Facebook page - another great way to keep in touch.
