18th.NOV. - CHRISTMAS MESSAGE UPDATE No. 6 - FROM YOUR CHAIRMAN:
Well, the light at the end of the tunnel has got brighter with news on possible vaccines. Unfortunately however we are currently still in difficult and uncertain times as to what may, or may not, be possible as we go into the festive season.
Obviously there will be no Group December Christmas ‘Bring a Plate’ party, or our now regular Christmas Dinner event at Glen Lodge. These would have been the venues for our normal exchange of cards which of course will not be possible, so as an alternative why not send your ‘Christmas Message’ for inclusion in the December issue of our Newsletter? You can send it to me via e-mail, text or even Facebook options. Come on let's fill a page or two!
We did thankfully have opportunities in the latter part of the season to support a few events although our ability to truly commemorate either VJ Day or support the annual Poppy Appeal was severely limited.
Logically until such times as ‘mass gatherings’ resume, both for inside venues and outside events, our activities remain severely restricted. I suspect we will not see the return of Group Monthly Meetings until the end of the first quarter at least, with possibly the earlier rally season events also being impacted.
As already indicated there will be a December Newsletter, many thanks to those who contributed. It is now in the final stages of production, just awaiting your Christmas Messages. Please continue to send me articles for the Spring Newsletter, which unfortunately will be my last... Don’t forget, as with previous issues if you know of any member who cannot obtain a copy via our website PLEASE print them off a copy.
Finally the most important message is as before:
Remain positive, please continue to observe the rules, and Stay safe.
