My Dear Friends,

Pat has been busy picking soft fruits from our garden and has turned much of it into jam. We now have an additional seven jars of mixed fruit jam. This will not stay on the shelf long as it is then distributed to our children and grandchildren.

My Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It has been too hot for some and we have found it cooler indoors than out, eases the thought of lockdown a little.

 Following a recent donation from the Province, we were delighted to receive this letter:

Message from the Provincial Almoner

My Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As it is Father’s Day tomorrow I thought I might start a little differently this week. I do not know how some of you reacted when one of your children were born, but way back in 1965, when my son was born, I looked at him and thought, “ I am now responsible for making you fit for this world.” It has been a pleasure to see him grow and mature.

Message from the Provincial Almoner

My Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I hope that you are all safe and well. Today I wish to start by offering our heartiest congratulations to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, on her official Birthday. Like us I am sure that she will miss seeing the wonderful ceremony of the Trooping of The Colours. This is usually a magnificent parade which many of us enjoy. We all wish her well.

£1,000.00 has been donated to each of the nine Hospices in Hampshire and Isle of Wight for the express purpose of buying Personal Protection Equipment (PPE).

The Hospices to benefit are:
