ANNOUNCEMENT...- Next Meeting Tuesday 2nd November 2021 at The Fleet Community Centre, Fleet Way,

High Street, Fletton, Peterborough, Cambs PE2 8DL 7.00pm to 9.00pm.


Hello everyone.

I know it has been an age since we last met. I hope you have all been coping and managing to get through these challenging times. To be honest I am not sure where last year went and this year seems to have disappeared within a blink of an eye. I am sure many have learned to adjust to the new normal. I for one continued to work, albeit from home. That was a steep learning curve for me, trying to grapple with IT. I think by the end of last year I was pretty zoomed out. I was lucky however to be able to work from home, many could not. My poor husband went down with long COVID, 18 months later he is just getting his energy back. I am sure we all have our tales to tell and I am mindful that many have missed the support and friendship offered by our Group, I know I have.


I had hoped to get the Group back up and running sooner so we could all meet again, however, I wanted to be sure, that it was of course safe to do so. Unfortunately, the Holiday Inn sadly let me down. When I suspended the bookings at the start of the pandemic they said to call when I was ready to get them off the ground again, however, they have said they can no longer accommodate us. I suppose they are trying to make up lost revenue, which is understandable. However, it has been a bit of a struggle to find somewhere that could take us in.
The Fleet Community Centre however were happy to accommodate us. Isabella, the Centre Manager was lovely and very accommodating. I have however had to move the meeting from a Thursday to a Tuesday.

As this will be our first visit to the Centre as a Group, we can see how we get on there. Isabella has said if we want to book it on a monthly basis that should be fine. Refreshments will be available. For those of you who do not know the Fleet it is based in Fletton. The address is above. There is a large free car park. I am going To visit the Centre before the 2nd November to familiarise myself with where we will be. I am really looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible, and perhaps some new faces.


Bye for now.
