A Happy New Year!
Although we have not been able to hold our usual monthly meetings and get together in our social groups, we have had quizzes and bingo on Zoom and a walk in Ashton Court. The Bridge Group is meeting on line and other groups have found ways of meeting up respecting Covid 19 guidance and rules. We have kept in touch with members through regular newsletters and cards.
Our September meeting welcomed our first on-line speaker via Zoom. Steve Loader, gave a well received talk on his work as volunteer Chaplain at Portbury Docks. We have recently donated a number of knitted items, toiletries, chocolate and DVDs to the sailors far from home at Portbury.
In November we had a fascinating talk by Clive Burleton on Bristol's White City Exhibition of 1914 and the subsequent use of the site. A story many of us were unaware of.
December saw a very jolly on-line Christmas party that put us in the mood for the festive season.
The following monthly meetings, also delivered via Zoom, are planned:
January 30th 2021 Jonathan Scott will talk about his work as Clifton Station Community Police Sergeant
February 24th 2021 Sally Hare, Hypnotherapist
March 31st 2021 Polina Rumsey, Facial Yoga
