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 of you may have already had one vaccination. I certainly hope so and with no side effects.
I wish you well and hope that it won’t be too long before the rest of us have the opportunity to have the vaccine. It’s the only way out of this miserable existence.
Although, when we returned to the tighter Tier system, we were promised that this would not be our lasting fate and that it would be reviewed every fortnight (hinting that there was a possibility of an improvement in our status) I suspected that tighter restrictions were more probably on the cards. There was much speculation prior to the new announcement of the changes, if any, to the Tier system that we would move up to Tier 3.
Thankfully that has not happened but, unfortunately it makes no difference to our being allowed to bowl. However, socially, we’re not quite as restricted as folks in Tier 3.
Moving on to more positive news – not only are all four louvred windows in place but they each have a very smart roller blind. Many thanks to Shirley Cromie for kindly donating the money and to Graham Whiting and Howard for attaching them. We are definitely ready to go as soon as we are able!
All that remains for me to do now is to wish you all a very happy and safe Christmas and a much, much better 2021!
I truly hope to see you all again in the not too distant future.
