Our club has been as active as possible in the past few months which has been a difficult time for all. We have had a few of our members who have been shielding until the beginning of August, but keeping in touch via emails, messages, telephone and Zoom meetings helping to keep things going.
We have recently had a small, outdoor, socially distancing meeting to discuss various matters arising since March when we last met as a full group. Some of our members have been out and about since March helping with meal deliveries for an action group and shopping, collecting prescriptions, etc in Maltby and Dinnington for vulnerable people and those unable to get out.
One of our lady members was making scrubs for the NHS at the beginning of lockdown and our club donated to this project. We have helped various individual people and donated to and helped Action groups and Food Banks in Maltby and Dinnington.
We discussed our Santa Christmas Sleighs at the meeting and we are currently organising refurbishment of both sleighs, North and South sides, in the hope that we will be able to get out with them in some way during the Christmas period. This of course is not a certainty, but we will do our best to organise something as so many people look forward to this, but we will have to adhere to government guidelines for everyone’s safety.
We will hopefully be able to have another socially distanced meeting soon when we can invite prospective new members, again we will have to adhere to guidelines in these uncertain times. Meanwhile we are continuing with our ongoing work in the community.
Stay safe everyone, Lynn Reaney, on behalf of MRVL.
