Hello all, or to show that we have not lost our cultural skills it could be: Guten tag, Dobrý den,
Buen dia, Bonne journée, Kalí méra or Buona giornata – this is your teaser!
Since early March it has been such a testing time for so many, and it has been quite interesting to hear what ingenious ideas that people have invented to fill their time. For myself I seem to have been busier, but one thing for sure I do truly believe that most people gardens look absolutely perfect and very pretty – not a weed in sight. Therefore, I trust that you all have managed this time and achieved some of those jobs that you always promise yourself to do and don’t.
I would like to reassure you that the AHA Committee are ready to commence organising of outings just as soon as it is possible. I know that some of the Coronavirus rules have been relaxed a little, but it is quite a way off for us to successfully and confidently to move on. However, we need to keep in mind our senior years and health issues. As you know, our Group visits are very much planned around car sharing, this is still very much a NO. To take groups of people into museums, art galleries etc., are still very much controlled by numbers. And on our excursions we enjoy including a light lunch, afternoon tea etc., and this could prove a problem for us to remain as a group. Recently I took the oportunity to speak to our Chair, Stephanie Cox, to discuss my concerns and to get the opinion of our U3A and to see if any advice had been received from U3A nationally – there is none. It is Stephanie’s opinion that my thoughts are very much in line with hers and we just have to patiently wait for our time to return.
You can be assured, just as soon as possible we will return with gusto to get our excursions back on track and all the time adding new ideas to our long list.
Wishing you all well and enjoy the summer to the best of your ability – I have heard from a number of sources that alcohol sales have gone up – how many trips have you made to the bottle bank?
Keep your distance and stay safe.
