A double/twin room has become available for the Northern Ireland trip that is scheduled for 21.9.21 - 25.9.21. Unfortunately a couple have had to cancel due to family problems. If anyone is interested they can contact Jean on 01707 331810.

Dates for your diary

As long as we're allowed to, we plan to have a Garden Party on July 14th. It won't be quite as normal - we'll need to bring our own food, drink and (if you can) chairs - but it should be a fun social event. We also hope to have a Christmas Lunch on Wednesday December 15th (Not 14th as previously stated!) Please put these in your diary!

If you wish to help in the fight against Covid-19 virus, then download the Covid-19 Symptom Study app. at https://covid.joinzoe.com/ . You'll be asked to self-report your symptoms (if any) daily, and you'll get a daily update on the infection rate in your area. You may also be asked to go for a test if any symptoms that you report might indicate that you're infected. Click here to go to the website.

Scam Alert

If you get an email, apparently from the NHS, that asks you for details of your bank account or credit card, then it's from a nasty crook, after your money. Delete it!

While restrictions on gatherings are in place, we are holding virtual meetings via Zoom every Wednesday morning. See the Meetings Programme page for further details. Group activities vary: some have had to suspend activities during lockdown but many are using virtual meetings or other methods to keep going, and outdoor activities are also possible, so contact your group leader to find out what is happening with your group.

We'll use email and postings on our website to keep you updated with any developments, so please keep a regular check on these.
