Happy Easter
Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are enjoying your Easter Weekend. What does it mean to you?
Eating Chocolate, Hot Cross Buns or going to church., and for some all of these.
Those who share a hot cross bun are supposed to enjoy a strong friendship and bond for the next year. A line from an old rhyme captures this lore, says Irish Central:
“Half for you and half for me, between us two, good luck shall be.”
The thing is I will share or even give away chocolate but a Hot Cross bun NO sorry you will have to fight me for the other half ….. but I will still be your friend.
Tuesday Nights classes for the next two weeks.
For the next two Tuesday’s the evening class will be held at Shrub End Hall. Please note: park as sensibly as you can in the small car park or please use the road outside the church. Weigh -in 6.15, exercise at 6.45 – 7.30. All Welcome.
As the “little ones” are off school or home from Uni please feel free to bring them along to class. Over the age of 10 are welcome to join in or those that wish to sit on the side with colouring pencils or books can do so. (or is it hand held games nowadays)
Calling all Knitters
have you got any wool that can be brought into class Julie?
A Colchester ward sister is setting up a group of volunteers to make blankets for patients who are nearing the end of their lives and also to reduce loneliness.
Sarah Sands from the Acute Cardiac Unit at Colchester General Hospital has been encouraged by the positive response from patients and their loved ones after blankets were donated by a knitting group in Norfolk led by her partner’s mother.
She also believes that the group of volunteers, which will be called the “CHUFT Blanketeers”, will bring together people who are often socially isolated, and give them a chance to get out of their home and meet other people.
Ms Sands said the CHUFT Blanketeers will meet regularly at Colchester General Hospital. People who attend will not necessarily have to knit – they can make tea, crochet, sew or simply come along for a chat to combat loneliness, which she described as “our biggest epidemic”.
She is hoping to attract volunteers who can support the group in various other ways, such as by transporting knitters to and from meetings or by delivering and collecting balls of wool. call Sarah on 01206 742718 or sarah.sands@colchesterhospitals.nhs.uk or speak to Julie in class for more details.
I hope you received this newsletter , have a lovely weekend.
