Dear Oasis ladies, partners and friends
They do say that as you get older, time seems to pass more quickly. In which case I must be getting very old because time seems to be hurtling past! Here we are, coming up to our September Oasis meeting. For the past few years, Venetia and I have done the catering for our September meeting but, sadly, this one will be another zoom. Petra is, once again, hosting the meeting.
The news is not good. The graph of positive Covid cases shows a marked uptick and the R number is now between 1 and 1.2. All very worrying. Tighter restrictions are being put in place again and I do not think we will be back at St George’s Hall until the spring at the earliest.
However, on a positive note, people are managing to get out and about within the limitations imposed. I have been able to play badminton at the leisure centre and I met up with five other ladies for a socially distanced lunch – our first for seven months. Eight of us (in 2 groups of 4)will be at The Interlude Tent in Chapelfield gardens on 15th to see the fabulous ‘La Voix’, and there will be a group meeting at Fairhaven Gardens on 18th. Thanks to Theresa and Lorraine for organising these garden outings during the summer. Thank goodness the weather is going to be warm and dry for the coming week.
We have had several new enquiries via the website and I have managed to meet up with Roxy and respond by telephone to another. Oasis still has a very important role to play.
Stay fit and well and I hope to see some of you in person and on zoom in the next few days.
Much love to you all.
