Day 10 – National Lockdown Countdown – News from Members!


Lucy & Merve

Sarah and Lucy (and Merve) got out in the fresh air today and enjoyed the sunshine.  It was a glorious day – not too cold and no wind!




Meanwhile Kevin L is the very proud owner of ‘Bernard’, a 1967 VX 1600 Variant which he inherited from his grandfather in 2004, who looks in fine fettle in the November sunshine.  Kevin said he and his 3 brothers used to sit in the boot!  Ah, those were the days, no seatbelts either, I expect!


I’m sure Bernard has many tales to tell of the Liffen brothers and escapades with their grandparents.  Will he stay silent or reveal stories?!

Thanks also to Brenda D for her email.  She has been concentrating on the ATP Tennis from the O2 arena.  Tiems looked in firm control right up to the end of the second set, then Medvedev moved up a gear to win.  Spare a thought for Ron B, who has been unable to get back to the Isle of Wight due to medical appointments.  Like Brenda and a few others of you, he is looking forward to Ange;’s Beef Stifado this coming Sunday, with Rice Pudding & Cherry Compote for dessert.  We’re still taking orders.

Good to hear from all of you!

Virus cases down in Richmond and Hounslow this week.  So roll on 3rd December.   If they’re opening gyms again, then shouldn’t indoor bowls open too – we’ve got a lot more space to social distance and have a lot less puffing and panting going on!  Fingers crossed.

    I watched Snooker Final yesterday after pottering in the front garden as such a lovely day! Now suffering with the usual back pain ! My favourite player the World Champion lost to the number one.

      Supervising over the other resident gardener would be a good option going forward – for your back anyway! I hope you feel better soon.
