A new message from our Almoner
Caroline Walsh, our Almoner, has sent a new message to everyone as we enter the next phase of the coronavirus outbreak.
Hoping you are keeping safe.
As we head into the next phase of this pandemic I wanted to send you a little update and reach out for you. Thank you to all who have been in touch. Sharing both sad & happy times. I am here for you. I would like to hear your lockdown and easing into new normal stories.
Lockdown for me meant online volunteering with the local YOS service up to twice a week and a local church Food Project (also up to twice a week but on different days). I have also been supporting local charities like our local dementia charity (Age Exchange) partaking in Zoom quizzes and a virtual balloon race for Coronation Day in June (the Walsh’s did rather well virtually travelling the furthest before our virtual balloons burst😂)
I also got involved in the 2.6 challenge for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal wheeling 3 challenges of 2.6 miles or more in 3 days. I also informally took part in the Lord Mayor’s Appeal in July challenging us to run/ wheel over a mile a day for 31 days. As we ease into the new normal I have been able to return to swimming…but in the local lake. So far enjoying wild swimming. All so I can complete the Swimathon 2020.
During lockdown I honed my photography using my iphone. I have attached one for you to enjoy😎.
I also attempted to teach myself using clay…work in progress I am sure you will agree😂.
