The Friends

Well, who knows what is going to happen over the next few months?

When we had our last Friends meeting I don’t think any of us would have predicted that our April meeting would be cancelled due to “lock down” and our village lunch and Autumn meetings would be at risk for the same reason.

It seems highly likely that there will be a requirement for social distancing for some time, particularly for those of us who are over 70. The annual village lunch is scheduled for Sunday 30th August at The Old Hopkiln, courtesy of Marjorie Day. Clearly, whether this event can take place depends on the rules regarding social distancing that are in place at that time.

Please look out for emails and messages on the Langrish and Ramsdean Facebook page for updates on this matter.

Our evening meetings with a meal and talk at Langrish House will resume in mid-October if social distancing is no longer required. Dates and details of the programme of events will be published in the September issue of The Squeaker or as soon as the situation regarding what we may or may not do by that time becomes clearer.

Meanwhile take care and stay safe.
