Its been so lovely to see you starting to return to groups. We now have Meet and Greet, Games and Indoor bowls, face to face. Singing will also now move into the hall from 28th July. Guidance allowing. It will be great to be in the hall again and we will be following any guidance offered by the government. Please let Carol know if you will be attending so we can ensure seating is socially distanced. We also hope to restart the cinema group soon at The Towner Cinema. Finally Digital Friends will be starting in August. Come along and update your computer skills. Learn how to zoom (may be needed if we have a winter lockdown) email, send photos to friends, shop etc. This will be held at Duke Bernard Court, Latimer Road, Eastbourne, BN22 7EW. See dates for your diary at the back. If you are not attending any groups yet and would like a chat about how we are running them safely, please give me a ring. I would be happy to explain what we are doing.
