It’s getting harder and harder to find news since we’re not seeing anyone, doing anything or going anywhere! The gardening is on hold again. I do quite enjoy it when I’m out there but not in subzero temperatures! It’s freeeeezing out there. Even our dog was keen to get home and snuggle up to the […]

Having said in my last newsletter that gardening was out of the question, I have actually done some this afternoon and feel better for it. Should the mild weather continue (I’m not expecting it to) I’ll get on with some more tidying tomorrow. The longer this lockdown continues, the harder I find it to motivate […]

I’m writing this on the first official day of yet another lockdown (Lockdown 3)! It may be the last but, then again, it may not be. We have a target of 15th February by which time the majority of our club should have been vaccinated and, three weeks later, protected against this horrible virus. I […]

What a year! When I began writing the newsletters, the idea was to keep in touch with everyone during the “short” time when we would be closed! Although we were open for a couple of months, I never imagined that this crippling situation would still be affecting us nine months later. There is light at […]

Good morning, When I began writing these newsletters, it was in an attempt to keep in touch with all of our members during the initial lockdown. I never dreamt that I’d still be doing it leading up to Christmas! What a year it’s been! And, unfortunately things are not about to get any better! Some […]
