    Hi everyone. Phyllis, our lovely volunteer, is in Musgrove Park Hospital, and has been since Monday. She has cellulitis, which is a common serious bacterial infection. Her leg was very swollen and hot. Derek rushed her to hospital. She is very upbeat and positive, as usual, but getting fed up with the food etc. Luckily, she has her phone handy and is able to keep in contact. She won’t be home until at least Monday. We send her all our best wishes. Aileen

We have happy memories of Orla on our trips out and she will never be forgotten. She was beautiful and had a happy happy life with Ernest. Aileen xxx

    Happy Easter everyone. Lovely weather again here in Weston-super-Mare, so lucky. Taking life one day at a time, chatting to lots of members and friends, which is wonderful. Catching up with jobs that we have been putting off and working in the garden. For those of you who may not know, my son, Anthony arrived back in the UK on 1st April from his travels through Africa, safe and sound. He is self isolating in Teignmouth and is very positive and upbeat. Listening to re plays of cricket matches and trying to support people through his website.Tonythetraveller.com. Take a look if you wish and enjoy. Regarding future events – The Hippodrome are being very supportive and keeping in contact with me. They have issued a voucher for We Will Rock You and this is valid until May 2021. If the new date clashes with other events I have booked we will receive a full refund. Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is in the process of being rescheduled. The Playhouse are keeping in touch with me and it is a case of wait and see. Ernest and Orla are both ok, Steve Wall is fine and Del Boy – well! He keeps in touch occasionally but is as crazy as ever. Take care everyone and keep safe. Love Aileen xxx
