February 2021

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID 19) emergency and government directives all meetings, visits, coffee mornings and meals are cancelled until further notice :


Dear fellow member,


Only 23 of us considered the Resolutions and most chose awareness of the signs of ovarian cancer to go forward for further discussion.

Apart from missing interacting with each other we’re also missing being involved with our lovely town of Tetbury.  You may have helped either by baking or washing up when we offer catering for visiting groups; usually in the Market House which is a very impressive venue.  We enjoy serving light meals to a range of visitors and have found that we need to brush up on our history because, often, other visitors to the town come in for a look at the hall and to talk to us.   This is also where we have supported Tetbury in Bloom, under Sue’s stewardship by providing teas, when they organise the Open Gardens day.

I’m missing the meals and drinks at our local hostelries that Ali arranges so well for us. We have used the market traders as well as Jessie Smith and Tesco to cater for our social events.  Our first Food group visit was to Hobbs House bakery in Chipping Sodbury.  The Wedding Tree in St Mary’s churchyard was donated when William and Kate were married and, on the subject of trees, there is the Christmas Tree decorated by Pam and friends at St Saviours early in December.  We make regular donations to Tetbury Hospital.  There is certainly more to add to this list and I’m sure that we’ll do all we can to support local businesses as soon as we are able.  It will be interesting to see how the empty shops currently being refurbished will be used.  The present stillness in the town is only counteracted by the number of walkers.

I’m sure that those who took part enjoyed Lorna’s quiz and, just a taster, next month the topic is chocolate… So far 48% of us have attended Zoom meetings and Lorna deserves every plaudit as she continues to roll out our programme with Anne’s support.

We have three book groups for readers but what about those of us who like to write? Why don’t you send me something?  It could be a critique of something you watched on television ( I’m loving thrillers and bodice rippers at the moment ) or a walk, or anything! to share.  This could be another way of keeping in touch.

You may have noticed that the February “Tetbury Advertiser” article was published on the website, thanks to Jennifer and Jayne.  This is temporary and we hope that we receive hard copies of the Advertiser soon.

Happy February!

Best wishes Chris
