Hello Friends,  The weeks are passing by and maybe by now some of us have had the vaccine. Hopefully by the end of April all of our group will all have had the jab. The weather has been a bit disappointing so far with not much sign of Spring but we live in hope as the daffodils put up their cheerful heads.
