The March Newsletter will be sent out on 1st March. Once again, many thanks to Margaret Whilde for printing off copies for those members not on email and for delivering them on her morning walk. Most of our group have now had the vaccine and are looking forward to the second round! Thanks to everyone for keeping in touch regularly with each other. Personally, can I say thank you to all those who have phoned or emailed me and even thanks to those who knocked on my door for a brief (distanced) chat during your exercise walks.

The February Newsletter will be sent out on 1st February. Once again, many thanks to Margaret Whilde for printing off copies for those members not on email and for delivering them on her morning walk. The good news is that several of our members have had the Covid 19 vaccine already; let’s hope we can all get it in time for an un-locked down summer when hopefully the Weekenders will have one very large birthday lunch to make up for all the ones we haven’t been able to have during 2020. But we are all keeping in contact via the phone and emails and of course the website. Keep chatting ladies!

The January Newsletter will be sent out on 1st January. Once again, many thanks to Margaret Whilde for printing off copies for those members not on email and for delivering them on her morning walk. We hope those members who unfortunately had to be alone on Christmas Day still managed to enjoy the day. I managed to persuade my daughter to drive me round Hucknall to do a 23 address card delivery. She refused to get out of the car to ring doorbells in case they were infected so I had to get in and out of the car 23 times; I’ve not had so much exercise in ten months of lockdown! She also made me sanitise my hands every time I got back into the car! Can’t wait for the Nabb Inn to re-open fully so that our Weekenders Coffee Club could have a meet up at long last.

Once again we had a November Newsletter where we caught up with what members had been up to last month, with lots of walking taking place and lots of bulb planting for 2021. The December Newsletter will be sent out on 1st December. Once again, many thanks to Margaret Whilde for printing off copies for those members not on email and for delivering them on her morning walk.

Activities have been varied, from hectic (those members with lots of hobbies and activities) to static (those members who are not able to get out and about as much and who also seem to have lost all motivation (yes, that’s right – me!). But lockdown does give us the chance to have long phone calls and to sort out the Christmas cards mailing list even if we’re not doing things like sorting wardrobes, sheds, etc.

Weekenders will certainly miss the annual trip out to the Blue Diamond Garden Centre at East Bridgford, especially the Singing Penguins, along with our Christmas Lunch, our Christmas Coffee Club session and our Christmas Social Evening.

Let us hope that the new vaccines will do all that it is hoped they can do, so that hopefully by Easter we may be able to meet up again. In the meantime, I hope everyone has as good a Christmas as we are able to have and let’s keep out fingers crossed for a better 2021.

We had a couple of informal garden meet ups but the weather is now making it more difficult. However, our members are going for walks around the local area, including the Misk Hills and keeping in contact with one another, offering support and laughs, both by phone and by the newsletter. I saw this on line and thought it was doing its best to be uplifting!
