On Monday morning I had a very tired throat and was feeling a little under the weather but also very excited that I would be telling you all about the amazing amount of money that was raised with the handbag sale/ back to school and back to basics and of course Stella, Wendy, Carrie and Julie’s abseil But I had “the wind taken out of my sails” as they say.
I quickly opened my emails before leaving for Highwood’s to find that I had been sent an email informing me of the closure of Shrub End Hall for a refurbishment.
I had been told that this was on the cards but never expected to receive just one month’s notice!!
I kept this news to myself and as many of you could see by Tuesday was looking and sounding very worn out. I had by this time made various phone calls to try to relocate the 12 classes effected.
By Wednesday I had decided that I needed to inform the class of my troubles (and felt better after) not only the news of the hall closure but also that I was unable to store items in the back room meaning our shop will come to an end on Saturday 30th September.
YOU have all been amazing with not only your comforting words but phoning around to find other halls. (please leave that to me now)
I have now visited a couple of hall but still have more to look at before I make any decisions as to where we will go.
Tony and family members have told me that I can only do my best so it may be that not all 12 classes will be covered.
Please continue to read the board in class, read my emails but most importantly talk amongst each other as there are some members that are not on the internet and some may need a lift.
