Shall we never get rid of this cursed corona virus? for the last two years we’ve
followed all the rules, wore the face masks, kept our distance, washed our hands
and purposely kept away from friends and family, we’ve had the first two jabs
then a booster and told to keep our distance once again. Last year after resuming
our Coffee Mornings in August we slowly built up our numbers till the Christmas
Bash when the new virus knocked us back again, though never mind we had a good
time with Tim Rooney giving us a selection of tunes, the Auction went well and
raised over a hundred pounds to the Meningitis Society even though there wasn’t many of us. Still this is a new year and hopefully we’ll see a light at the end of the tunnel. Like all things in life there are only two things that stay the same, death and taxes. We had to come to you members in January for a rise in the subscriptions, we didn’t want to do it but there was no other way, from hire of the room to printing everything over the previous year into this one has gone up and as far as we can see it will probably be for some time to come, as you see at home with increases in the price of food, the cost of living and energy prices, we have kept the subscriptions the same for the past four years but unfortunately we had to come back to you, with the increase that you allowed us to make, it puts us back on a level footing and enables us to go forward and to give all of you the best that we can offer, once again thank you. Last but not least we have lost another member sorry to say, Pat Strange, she had been with us for many years, God Bless.
