Move 2 Lose = N

Hello Everyone
Can you believe we are nearly at the end of June. This week it has been “flaming June” Hot Hot Hot. I wonder how much we would have moaned about the heat in class.
NO way the letter N
Newsletters, many of you have thanked me for keeping the newsletters going over the past months but it should be me saying thank you to you for reading them. Not only have they been an important part of my “mental health” they have also kept me in touch with you. 4 of you including my mum are not on the internet and I have either posted or hand delivered each weeks newsletter so they are not left out. Phyliss nearly cried this week when I turned up on my bike.
I will end this newsletter with NHS and just how connecting this charity collection was for me.

Not Tuesday Zoom…It’s Wednesday Zoom

The zoom meetings will be held on Wednesday next week for a change. One at 11am and again in the evening at 7pm. Don’t say No say Yes. See you Wednesday. Invitation will be sent nearer the time.

NO

No I will not be going to the pub, No I will not be going to a restaurant, No I will not be going on any marches or going to the beach, No I will not be booking a holiday and NO I will not be opening classes on the 4th July.
With every announcement that is made, I just wait for the words that we can meet up inside with more than a few people.
NO I am no the same as a gym as we do not use equipment that would have to be cleaned, therefore I have to wait until the official instructions are given regarding inside group activities.

Nuts – Noodles – Naan Bread

Almonds are known for being the nut highest in calcium. Most nuts appear to be generally healthy, though some may have more heart-healthy nutrients than others. For example, walnuts contain high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.
One drawback to nuts is that they’re high in calories, so it’s important to limit portions.
Naan Bread is traditionally served with curry. I love Naan Bread, well actually I like any bread! my favourite is Peshwari and Tony’s is Keema – what’s yours?
From Indian to Chinese – Noodles
There is a great variety of noodles, which vary according to their region of production, ingredients, shape, width, and manner of preparation.
Now the question is Indian or Chinese? Julie says Indian please.
NHS National Health Service – Rainbow Riders
The NHS story:
When the symbol of the rainbow became very prominent for the NHS I suddenly had a vision of my logo inside a rainbow. After a few phone call’s to class member Louise and some design work sent off to Simon I received a parcel of “stickers”. Great I thought but now I have to sell them and distribute them! the cost of which was going to be huge.
Tony and I are both members of a local Scooter Club and Tony has this idea that the “riders” would love any excuse go jump on their scooter to deliver stickers. “Really” I said.
Within a few days I had named them “rainbow riders” Edd, Neil, Jeremy, Paul and of course myself and Tony.
Then over the weeks that have passed Liz got in touch with me and said she has been making peg bags, aprons, childrens bags and a few Christmas items that she had been selling on a whats app page and would I like a few items to sell. Liz said she would also donate all her funds to our collection. Then Linda (Honey) offered honey for sale and then Lisa from AJE Graffix had some mugs made with the NHS rainbow, and then Norma made some face masks.
Back to the rainbow riders I went and off they went.
Fingringhoe, Brightlingsea, Boxted, Wivenhoe, Marks Tey, Great Tey, Abberton, East Greenstead, Lawford, Manningtree, Stanway, Prettygate, Monkwick, Highwoods to name but a few.
It was lovely for myself to see so many of you when I was delivering items to your doors. (sometimes early in the morning)
For me this has been an amazing opportunity to keep the “move 2 lose” family together.
Every penny that was paid into my bank account and cash collected at the door will be going to The Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity : words from their web site
Important information about Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the charity
Our current focus is to raise as much money as possible to support all our NHS staff in any way that is needed. To do this we have launched a COVID-19 Staff Wellbeing Appeal.
This brings me to announce the total raised to date is:
£971.75
to which Julie will send
£1000
I would like to add that apart from a few letters sent, all deliveries were made FOC by rainbow riders and I will never be able to thank them enough.
They are not ready to stop and neither am I as every penny raised from now on will go to Colchester Zoo (well I need something for when I get to Z!)
Have a good day
Julie
