NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 2020
Hello everyone, and welcome to the September newsletter. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, September’s meeting has also had to be cancelled. All our monthly meetings and trips will be cancelled until the Government lift all restrictions. Hopefully, this will not take too long, and we send our best wishes to all members, family and friends to stay safe and well at this difficult time.
We are sad to announce the recent passing of Wally Tittle, one of the founding members of this club. The club committee have expressed their sincere condolences to his family and hope that Marie will eventually feel able to return to the club.
An early reminder for everyone. The meeting in November has had the date changed because the stadium needs both suites for an event on the day of our meeting. The new date is Wednesday 17th November. Please mark it on your calendars or diaries.
Turkey and Tinsel Break
Date: Dec 18th to 21st
The committee have recognised everyone’s current concerns over Covid-19 and social distancing. We are currently organising a second coach for transport to assist with this.
Summer Holiday 2021
11th June 2021
We have now increased the number of people who are going on our holiday from 21 to 25 people to Lakeside Holiday Village, Hampshire. We would assure everyone that this venue is covered by free Covid – 19 insurance protection, and that Anthony’s Travel are taking all necessary precautions re travel arrangements. If anyone wishes to see if there are any available spaces, please contact Dianne Ryder on 01928 573801, she will be happy to make enquiries for you.
Unfortunately, all the single rooms are now fully booked, so if anyone wishes a single room there is now a supplement to be paid as only double rooms are available.

Birthday cards have been posted early to ensure that they arrive no later than the members birthdays, however they could arrive quite early under the present circumstances.
Just a reminder to all members that we have a website and facebook page, so feel free to visit these sites and comment on any of the articles
If you would like anything going onto the website or facebook for example, photographs or reviews on any of the club events, feel free to send them to me, David Ryder, at the following email address:
Teresa Cook, Sandra Byrne and Rose Cook keep in touch with our members every week by phone to check on their wellbeing, if there are any issue’s they require support with, and by the monthly newsletters.
The club is now contributing financially towards James’s continuing efforts to support the vulnerable in our community.
Are you aware that he also provides Sunday Lunch at £5.50 a head? Feedback is that they are excellent quality and the portions are huge. If you are interested, please contact 01928 898564 but I would advise you to book early i.e. on a Monday as he only makes 45 lunches.
He has built an excellent reputation over Covid 19 lockdown, providing those in need in the community with essential supplies free of charge. Thank you, James.
Hidden Disability Cards
Sandra Byrne has purchased some hidden disability cards for members who require proof that they are unable to wear facemasks. Please contact Sandra on 01928 580887 if you would like one.
Wonderful feedback from our 3 beneficiaries, who are now enjoying being able to use this technology and they are receiving excellent support from Debbie over any difficulties.
Ray & Pat Cosgrove
Ray and Pat have contributed photos of their lovely garden to share with us all to show what they have achieved during lockdown and social isolation. An example is shown below, but more on the website. Anyone else who would like to show what they have achieved please send any photo’s to firstname.lastname@example.org
23rd Birthday Party
Unfortunately, this year we have been unable to celebrate the Let’s Go Stroke Club’s 23rd birthday and the Afternoon Club’s 5th birthday. Hopefully, next year we will be able to celebrate twice as much.
Take Care Everyone
