Covid and all..
23 September 2021
As for everyone Covid restrictions have proven to be both long and tiring. Our traditional fund raising events such as Christmas post delivery and the popular coastal path charity walk have just not been possible.
However, we have continued to ‘meet’ every second week via ‘Zoom’ and have been able to provide support to the local food bank, to Waid Academy, to ENCEPT - the East Neuk Community Emergency Planning Team and to several charities, especially those supporting children.
Most recently the club has purchased another two ShelterBoxes - those marvellous emergency ‘boxes’ that include a tent, cooking stove, bedding, water purification equipment and in fact everything a family needs to survive a disaster.
And on a brighter note!! dare we say, the club choir managed to meet in a garden. The weather was kind, the singing rusty but the coffee and cake delightful.
The success of vaccination and the lessening of restrictions also meant the club was able to organise a very enjoyable car treasure hunt. Social distancing, mask wearing and risk assessments of course - but great fun and finishing at the ‘Eatooterie’ at Ovenstone for outdoor burgers and chips.
And now in this last month we have been able, once again, to meet in person. Fellowship at a social distance perhaps, but nonetheless most enjoyable. We have also been able to welcome a new member and our wish is that we might return to as normal a programme as we can.
