From the Editor of the Newsletter – July-August 2021
Oh my goodness! Look at all that colour on the front cover. I thought we’d splurge a bit this month as it’s a double edition. Also, it’s summer and there’s so much lovely colour around us. The next colour cover will be on the December & January double edition, so feel free to send me your artwork if you’d like it to be featured on the winter edition.
The lifting of ‘lockdown’ has been pushed back for our benefit as cases are on the rise again. I had hoped the hot, hot weather we’ve had would kill it off for us and we could go back to whatever ‘normal’ is/was. I can’t wait to enjoy a meal out or a holiday without the overshadowing worry of Covid-19.
After lockdown, I think I will try to never type the words Covid-19 again. If I have to mention it in the newsletter, I’ll just call it C19 (maybe even with a lower case ‘c’!).
Enjoy your summer, and take care all.
A Summer of Sport
At the time of writing, the Euros have started with England winning their first match and drawing their second match. I hope the home nations do really well. If you’re not the greatest football fan, then there are other sporting events to look out for.
Tour de France starts on 26th June in Brest with Adam Yates (GB) ranked 9th and I really hope he does well this year. Wimbledon starts on 28th June with notable British players including Johanna Konta and Andy Murray. The Open (golf) is on 15th – 18th July and is being held at Royal St George’s, Sandwich, Kent. The Summer Olympics are being held in Tokyo and this is due to start on 23rd July until 8th August with the Paralympic Games starting on 24th August to 5th September.
We’re keeping our fingers cross that all of these events can take place and that some spectators are allowed.
Have a lovely summer everyone.
