The Community Centre will open in April but allowing only restricted numbers so it is not possible for us to resume our monthly meetings at that venue. We will review the situation regularly, our current view is that we should be able to resume meetings in July but it all depends on the progress of the pandemic.
Tuesday 23rd March, today we held our our monthly meeting at which our guest speakers were Ken MacIver and Carol Shearman – Dogs for Good. This was an entertaining talk on the charity Dogs for Good who provide assistance dogs throughout the country. The dogs are trained to open doors, fetch the phone, pick up things that have been dropped even empty the washing machine. It was amazing what the dogs could do. We plan to invite them back when we can meet in person and to bring one of their dogs also.
Some groups are meeting using zoom and our Chairman hosts a weekly Tea in the Afternoon when his calendar permits!
