We are successfully meeting using ZOOM video-conferencing. Saves getting stopped at the border or being quarantined.

On Saturday 16th May 2020, 9 of us met digitally. It was a welcome relief being able to chat across the ether without having to journey to Shrewsbury and back. For some a five minute walk for others several days across Europe.

It gave Roy Weaver from Cambridgeshire the opportunity to update with his news and for John Avery and Barbara to join from Anglesey. Chris and Rosemary Davison were in Hampshire just visiting from Austria at the beginning of March and finding themselves in 12 week lock-down. Not perfect timing said Chris. We all exchanged tales of how good we felt and Jenny with Julian reminded us how supportive our health system had been over the years. Discussion tailed off onto Brexit and ….

John remarked how good it was to see Roy and that it was their first visual encounter since school days.

Thanks to Keith for setting up the technology which was simple to use.

On 27th June 2020 we met virtually once more. A really good turnout this time, adding Rosemary Hemming. Our August meeting included John Cartwright and John Hunter. Good to interact with so many old friends.

Join us for the next meeting. To obtain virtual joining details, please contact Keith Winter (his details at foot of page).

Editor’s recommendation. Download the Zoom App for your device and take a test drive before our meetings. It’s easy to operate and the help files minimise searching for microphone or camera controls. CD.
