News Bulletin

Bulletin 48

27 March 2020

Hi Members,

Hope all of our members are coping with the “social isolating”.

Going for our daily exercising walk around the neighbourhood, it appears that there is a lot more activity in the gardens than usual. Never have I seen the nature strips better maintained.

Apologies for those of you who were not able to open the videos accompanying the previous bulletin. Until I can work it out, I will confine my efforts to the written word..

A few contributions from your fellow members include the following:-

Bill Mackey has purchased 3 meters of bubble wrap, and will spend the next few weeks popping them.

Peter Taylor is taking up the violin and the bagpipes chanter. His neighbours are leaving in droves. He has learned how to use the library on line – and now is an expert on the Spanish Civil war.

Mike Johnson is using his experience at the Shed to make his own raised garden, and believe the vegetables may come in handy over the coming months.

Me? My high-lights this week were on Monday when I had my flu injection, and yesterday, I visited the Shed to bring the bins in. my excitement was palpable!

We recommend you visit the below website for the latest regulations:-

Please feel free to email me with what you are doing to fill in your time. I cannot promise that I will not copy it into my next bulletin. All contributions will be welcome.

if you would like to contact your fellow members (and we would encourage you to do so), just email me and I will give you the member’s email address or phone number.

In the meantime please look after yourselves - we want to see everyone back at the Shed when this crisis is over.

All the best.

Secretary.

Keeping in Touch

Hi Members,

 

As advised in Bulletin No 46, the Shed is now closed until further notice.

As late as today, we have been advised that we would be breaking the law were we to still be operating.

 

The situation with the virus and how we are expected to conduct ourselves is changing by the hour. However, the latest regulations are available on:-

 

https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus-covid-19-daily-update

 

It is most important that we keep in touch with each during this period of personal quarantining and 1 ½ meter personal exclusion zones.

 

To that end, if you would like to contact your fellow members (and we would encourage you to do so), just email me and I will give you the member’s email address or phone number.

 

How are you filling your time? Me? Sending out news bulletins to shed members!

 

This would be a great time for members to share their personal stories, histories, experiences or how they are getting along at this awful time. Send your contributions to me and I will circulate them to all other members.

 

In the meantime, I have attached a couple of items for your amusement. They have been selected in the hope that they will not offend members, but I do have a few that are guaranteed to offend – these I will not pass on!

 

We will reopen as soon as it is deemed safe to do so. In the meantime please look after yourselves - we want to see everyone back at the Shed when this crisis is over.

 

All the best.

 

David Cheney

Secretary.
