Chairman’s October Message

I must first apologise for the delay in getting this message out to you.  I have been very busy since our last meeting so no September message – straight to October!

Our last meeting on 9 September in the garden of the Colville Arms in Lullington was a great success.  The weather was very good which allowed the 30 attendees – mostly members with partners – to enjoy a socially distanced gathering.  We were joined by several Tangent members and the National President and his wife and we all enjoyed the company, the weather and the fish and chips.

Pat and I left for Whitstable directly after the meeting as our daughter wanted us to pick the grand kids up from school the next day as they had to attend a funeral.

On Saturday 12 September we celebrated our Golden Wedding Anniversary, with our family as the rule of 6 was not in effect at that time. We had a great day as you can see from this picture and then went to a nice hotel.

I have just listened to Boris’s latest announcement and hardly understood a word of it.  However, there was no good news, so I can’t see how we can plan to meet again any time soon.  We must stay positive and see this through.  Donald is planning his President’s Night for 3 March and that may be the first time we meet in my year.

We will have another Zoom meeting at 7.30 pm on our regular meeting night – 14 October.  I look forward to seeing many of you then.

Best wishes to you all and stay safe.
