Social Events Coordinator – Contact Liz Pawsey
All very quiet on the Social side of Probus. We have found it necessary to make a decision now to cancel our usual Anniversary celebrations for this year. We have postponed our lunch at the Royal Motor Yacht Club until 15th July 2021 where we will celebrate our 14 years with great enthusiasm.
We are cautiously optimistic that the restrictions may be lifted sufficiently to allow a “Breakout Breakfast” in September or October at Piemonte for a smaller group. Continue to keep the third Thursday of each month free for possible Probus social activities. It is certainly hard to make any definite plans at this stage. As we are all in the vulnerable category, we must follow the advice of the medical authorities and the Government and be very patient. Our time to socialise normally WILL return!
One activity we are planning on is our Christmas Lunch on Friday 11th December and we will do our best to make it very special!
I know these are challenging times for our age group and I am very aware that many are missing our regular lunches and dinners etc. The current restrictions make our usual lunches etc not possible and the threat of contacting Covid-19 is still very real with known consequences.
May I suggest an easy way to overcome this feeling of isolation without waiting for our social activities to return to allowing our normal numbers? How about contacting a member or a couple of members, possibly ones you haven’t spoken to before or sat next to at a meeting and organise to meet at a café or restaurant and enjoy getting to know them. The contact list is attached for your ease in finding phone numbers and I’m sure your phone call would be received with enthusiasm.
Continue to be sensible and keep safe.
