As the UK heads into its eighth week of lockdown we hope you are all safe and well and keeping occupied with work and/or hobbies.
The National Trust has been working hard on plans to re-open its properties and welcome back visitors as soon as possible. The email from Hilary McGrady (Director General) on Friday 7th May that we have forwarded to you gave details about this and included a video message to all volunteers. We are eager of course to hear from all our local properties about when they might resume working with volunteer groups like ours.
You'll remember from the 'Keeping in touch - edition 2' email of 16 April, that we gave our safety glasses to Quality Care of Cheadle. Well, since then Jenny, Tricia, Lisa and others (?) have made scrubs, gowns, visors and face masks for local NHS and care workers. A brilliant effort by everyone!
We hope you have had a good bank holiday weekend last week. Unusually, the bank holiday was at the start not the end as we celebrated the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe and remembered the fallen. Some of us hung up bunting and had socially distanced street parties.
Finally, remember that we have a WhatsApp group for all of us to keep in touch during lockdown. If you would like to be part of this then please send us your mobile number so we can add you to it.
Until next time
Keep safe and well
Your MNTV Committee
