Hi, I trust you are all safe and well.
I have read that some of our centre members have lost loved ones to this dreadful covid-19 epidemic. My heart goes out to you and your families as, I am sure, the rest of the centre also feel for you in your ‘hour of need’; much love to you all.
It was interesting reading what you had got up to during the Easter weekend, very imaginative! There was play your cards right, whisky tasting, stair climbing, magic shows, singing, van cleaning, sun bathing, BBQ’s but best of all was the reminiscing. There were some great photos. It also seems that there will be a lot of fit ralliers when we finally all get back out in our vans!
On Tuesday evening, we held our virtual committee meeting; the good thing about the virtual meetings is I don’t have to go shopping for the ingredients to make the brews half way through the meeting, LOL. It was suggested that we present Rally Officers who have had their rallies cancelled due to Covi-19 with their Rally Officer gifts which are different style drinking glasses with the 50th Celebration motif engraved on them. This was unanimously agreed as it was felt they have already done a lot of prep work and when the rallies were cancelled they have had additional work. So, at a suitable time after the lock down has been lifted, we will get the presentations organised. Thanks again Rally Officers.
To finish I would just like to say how impressed I am of Captain Tom Moore, if he can raise that incredible amount of money, £12,000,000, for the NHS by walking 100 lengths of his back garden at his age, we, Cheshire ralliers, can surely survive a bit longer with lock down. You can’t keep a Military Vet down.
Hi fellow ralliers,
I hope you, your family and friends are all safe and well in these troubling times. From what I have heard and seen you are all pulling together to enable us all to get through these terrible days, some of you by some very ingenious methods; well done.
Some of you may have heard that two of our Easter rallies had already purchased the chocolate eggs for their rallies. Following the Rally Officers’ suggestions, your committee paid for the Easter Eggs and let the RO’s donate them to local charities. The eggs have gone to a local food bank in Widnes and the Children’s Ward at Macclesfield General Hospital. I appreciate it is only a small gesture but, as one famous store states “every little helps”. Again well done all.
The Easter Newsletter has been completed and will be sent out via e-mail to you all on Monday, so keep an eye on your inbox, if you don’t see it please check your Junk or Spam box; thanks.
Enjoy your Easter celebrations, as much as you can, and I look forward to hearing or reading about your exploits under lock down.
Oh, one last thing if I may; As a former Royal Air Force aircraft engineer, when a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don’t throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer. Stay on the train.
