What a difference a month makes! Here we all are (writing this on 9 April 2020) in 'lock down' trying to keep well and not succumb to Covid 19! Very worrying times indeed, and all our lives have been put on hold indefinitely. I am heartened though by how local communities and people in general are rallying round to help those who need it most, so thank you to all those volunteers selflessly helping others, and especially NHS workers, deliverymen, postal staff, shop workers, and all those keeping us supplied and cared for.

Needless to say our March meeting on St Patrick's Day did not take place, and all regular Tuesday Group meetings are on hold until restrictions are lifted. However, to keep our group 'alive' and keep members in touch with each other, we are issuing a regular newsletter by email called the 'TG Times', and already on the 3rd edition our members are contributing 'articles', 'anecdotes', 'recipes', advice, photos and much more, and the resulting issues are keeping spirits up and keeping us in touch!

I must say we have had some fabulous contributions, and are discovering many previously hidden talents! So important to keep spirits as high as possible in these challenging times, so we hope to continue with the TG Times as long as necessary........but of course we also look forward to the time we can resume our monthly group meetings and enjoy socialising again.

For information, in normal times, the Tuesday Group is a ladies social group drawing from Drayton, Curry Rivel, Muchelney, Fivehead, Langport and beyond, and meets on the third Tuesday each month at 7.30 pm in the Drayton Village Hall. Annual membership is only £10, or come and try for a guest fee of just £2.50 per meeting. For further information please contact either Barbara Lancey on 01458 252657, email barbaralancey@hotmail.com, or Jean Padfield on 01458 253948, email jeanpadfield2002@yahoo.co.uk.

If you would like to consider becoming a member of the Tuesday Group when things return to normal, or would like to receive a copy of the TG Times, do get in touch. Stay safe!
