Almost Weekly News No. 33 – 25/02/2021
NEIL HAS DONE IT!
At the end of January, Neil completed his fantastic Everest challenge – cycling up to the summit of High Vinnals, near Ludlow, 38 times – which is equivalent to the height of Mount Everest at 29,000ft!
All the money has been collected in and we can announce that he’s raised a the brilliant total of £500 for Working Together – FANTASTIC!!
A massive thank you to Neil and also to everyone who has supported him, including all the Members who made bunting and Steph – for knitting a woolly hat to keep Neil warm on his challenge.
We’re hoping to use the money for outdoor furniture at Rockspring.
“Had my vaccine…”
It’s fabulous to see members getting their Covid-19 vaccines.
It feels like a big step towards getting back together again.
We’ve also started to slowly reopen our doors at the Rockspring Centre for some one-to-one sessions.
Government advice remains that those who are Clinically Extremely Vulnerable should keep shielding until 31/03, even if they’ve had the vaccine.
Not only has pancake day this year been a very, very good reason to enjoy one of our favourite foods (and
some of our favourite toppings – mine is Banana and Chocolate spread) it has also inspired Writers’ Club…
I Smell the Pancake in the Air
I smell the pancake in the air
I want to eat it with chocolate or lemon and sugar
My nephew Caleb born on Pancake Day
Very hot, warm pancake
Pour over golden syrup with berries
I made with milk and eggs
My dad Kevin tossing and turning pancakes on the
saucepan in the morning
Pancake is our favourite breakfast!
The sound of pancakes, In the frying pan,
With the smell, Wafting my way,
They taste, Light and fluffy,
Like a feather, In my mouth,
With maple syrup, in every bite
This is what, Shrove Tuesday,
Is all about Pancakes !!!
Some Firewood Fun…
Simon and Tim have been preparing firewood for next winter. Nicola has promised to put
some wood aside for WT for when we are able to use the pizza oven at Rockspring.
Ben and his sister enjoying a lovely lockdown walk. What a great picture!
Test it Thursdays…
Staff and volunteers are now taking weekly Covid tests as part of new guidance to help keep the WT team and members safe.
