Another Budding Artist in our Midst!

Kevin K has been doing his weekly round of buddy catch ups – thank you.

Chris Sq is out in Carlisle Park most days and is keeping an eye on how the Hampton BC green is coming along.

Katharine W was a bit concerned when she though Brian C said he’d dug up bodies in his garage.  What he actually said was he’d dug out boules in the garage!  Polish them off Brian, we can see a challenge emerging.  Katharine is “wandering lonely as a cloud” admiring the blossoms.  They are fantastic at the moment.

Dave W and wife are fine although sadly lost a friend to the virus this week.  Please uphold the family in your thoughts.

Hang on to your hats.  Richard H is thinking of cleaning his car.  I don’t know Richard that well, but Kevin said it’s a big deal!

Meanwhile, Steve Harbud – well what can I say?  He’s been picking up on his artwork and thinks he’ll be getting his guitar out and writing some more songs.  Brilliant!

Former member Chris Nelhams is catching up on illustrated name orders – see his FB page.

Kevin himself has rejoined his St Mary’s Youth Club – well the WhatsApp Saga version anyway.  Good to reconnect.  I spoke to my boss from Oakley Fabrics last night.  We used to supply fabrics and components for soft toys then artist bears.  I had 15 wonderful years making and designing bears and attending Bear Fairs all over the country (now you know I really am weird) but all that stuffing and jointing affected my neck so had to give it up.  My boss retired some 14 years ago.

For those of you not on Facebook, I took my daily walk down and around to the Club and back last night.  All is looking good for when we’re released from lockdown.

    Hi Dawn

    You are still doing a remarkable job in uniting and informing club members on what each member is doing to while away the time during ‘lockdown’
    We are both keeping healthy and busy and spending a lot of time trying to get the garden into shape and hopefully pretty. Have a brisk walk alternate days, the in between days Tony has a run/jog while I keep up with Yoga and Pilates practise.
    Very pleased to know Brian Curwood is making good progress, sending best wishes to him as well as Carol and family.

    Thank you Dawn for all your efforts

      Hi Shirley
      Thanks for your updates too! With so many of you out in your gardens, we shall need photos of all the gardens to display when we get back to the club!
      Just heard that Brian is now back at home, which is brilliant news!
