January 2021

Hello lovely U3A people,

One of the things I learned recently was, that I should get out of my chair and pick up the item I’m reaching for rather than leaning over the arm of the chair and stretching as far as possible.  My intercostal muscle went crack and I yelped. No long term damage and in the short term I’m fine as long as I don’t sneeze, cough, laugh or breathe too deeply.  That’ll teach me. Or not. 

I hope things are looking a bit brighter as you read this month’s newsletter. Certainly, as I write, the weather has become a little warmer and some of the ice and snow has disappeared.  The vaccine rollout has started so things are looking up.  I hope you find something of interest in this month’s newsletter. If not, why not make a contribution yourself?

All the best

Viv

 

December 2020

Hello lovely U3A people,

We are finally waving goodbye to 2020, a year we’ll no doubt remember for quite some time.  We have learned a new vocabulary including lockdown, social distancing and key workers, not to mention covidiots and covexit.  Hopefully in the near future the promised vaccine will enable us to make some moves towards resuming normal life.  In the meantime a lot of our members have been working away in the background to stay in touch. By the time you read this, our Christmas Show will have taken place and even if you couldn’t join us on Zoom your membership number will have been entered in the Christmas raffle.  The winning numbers are printed elsewhere in this newsletter. A thought for 2021; “Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, it will be happier”

 Best regards,

Viv
