I hope this Newsletter finds you and your family in good health and safe.
Sadly due to restriction a lot of the fundraising events that my partner and myself would have volunteered at did not take place, but St Barnabas did manage to run the South Down Trek in September. Both Alan and myself met the walkers at the end to congratulate them on their achievements and give them their medals; it was an honour to do as they had worked so hard and were exhausted. I would have gladly given them a stretching session, but sadly that was not allowed under Covid restrictions.
With the roll out of the new vaccine hopefully when most of us are protected, life will resembled some sort of normality. Classes can then take more participants, so that I can get all my ladies and gents back into class, as I know they are missing the exercise and social aspect.
As a fully qualified First Aider I have been accepted for training as a volunteer vaccinator by St Johns ambulance, so I will be busy studying over the Christmas holidays and then into the classroom for face-to-face training in the New Year. It will be good to do my bit to help get the vaccine out to as many people as possible, making people feel safe again so they can start to get back to their everyday activities.
I wish you all a safe and healthy Happy New Year and look forward to working with you in 2021, when we are allowed again I will give you all a big hug.
