Even though our church buildings have to remain closed, let’s remember that this is Easter, surely special for everyone and profound for those of Christian faith. Perhaps we should pause for a moment to reflect on the personal sacrifices being made now, again, for us all.
Please forgive a general, rather than individual, thank you for all the many appreciative responses you sent to David Goode’s recent piece on a dawn chorus. For those who wanted to learn more, I’m afraid that the WA communications platform would not be up to audio examples. But there are lots of websites that do just that and also, it seems, apps for mobile phones which can then identify actual birds by their song. Amazing.
Message from our Royal United Hospital
If feeling ill with symptoms of COVID-19, please follow the guidance and call 111. If you are feeling unwell with other symptoms, the RUH accident and emergency is operating (with a separate entrance for non COVID-19 patients) so don’t delay in an emergency and don’t be afraid to come to hospital if you need to.
A photograph reminder of the asset we have is attached.
We do now have residents in Widcombe at home with Covid symptoms, and of course also residents with other, underlying, respiratory conditions. The Council is asking us all not to light bonfires notwithstanding the suspension of garden waste collections. This has been unavoidable in order to keep other vital services running with reduced staff availability. Which leads me to my final item.
Call for volunteers to help Bath-based Foldall manufacture face shields for Council front line workers.
You might like to take a look at the attached initiative, and call for volunteers, to manufacture protective equipment locally for care and other workers whose roles brings them into contact with the people they serve.
