It has been a very strange few months for the world, one which many of us did not expect to see. And I'm sure many of you have been especially affected as you have been told to stay home and stay safe! When I wrote in March no-one had any idea how things would evolve over the months and sadly the number of bereaved families has grown every day.
I suspect for those of you that have stayed home, your gardens are looking very well tended and that some of those jobs on your “When I've Got Time Job List” have finally been ticked off at last. Please send us photos of your gardens/flowers so that we can add them to our website. It is so lovely to get some inspiration from others.
As promised I am keeping you updated on Club Meetings and news.
It will no doubt come as no surprise that the June, July, August and September Club Meetings have been cancelled. Our AGM will take place before the next meeting whenever that is held. Like every other village organization we must look out for the health and well-being of our members and friends and we will follow the advice given regarding group meetings and social distancing etc.
The editors of The Link Magazine have asked me to let you know that until further notice the magazine will be available online only.
Stansted in Bloom 2020
I have also been contacted by Penny Reeves, (she spoke to us at our last meeting), who passed on the good news that Stansted in Bloom 2020 is going ahead. The date of this being 26-28th June!
All information & an entry form is on the Parish Council Website.
Why not Have A Go!!
As well as Gardening, Sheila (our Treasurer) has been busy sewing for the NHS and is now currently making face coverings. She says she cannot call them masks as not PPE but okay to wear to give some protection. So if you or you know of anyone that would wear one and would like one or more, please get in touch with Sheila (01279-814973).
She is asking for a £3 minimum donation which will go to The Friends of Stansted Surgery Group who funded the scrubs she's been making. Please do pass this information to other members/friends who may be interested.
Finally, please take care everyone, keep safe, and enjoy pottering around in your gardens and ticking off more of those jobs you have put off!
