A poem for Capel Ladies’ Club

Hope everyone reading this is keeping well and safe in these strange times. By now we are getting used to this different way of living, but at the same time we all miss normality and seeing neighbours, friends and family up close and personal! I’ve been really impressed how the situation has brought out such a wonderful community spirit in Capel! People looking out for each other and willing to help with shopping or be a friendly voice on the phone…

My hope is that it will continue when this is all over, which I’m sure it will. I personally am missing Capel Ladies Club and the outside interests and friendship connections it brings us members each month, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. So, Ladies, chin up – stay safe and carry on! In the words of the song –

“We’ll meet again
Don’t know where
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day!

Keep smiling through
While you’re hand-washing too
‘Till the Doctors drive the virus far away!”

10th-12th Jan | Festival of Trees & Lights

The regular biennal Festival of Trees & Lights was held in St Mary’s Church as usual this year. There were over 20 beautifully decorated Christmas trees which, following this year’s theme of Famous Buildings Round the World, were each displaying appropriate items to give clues to their particular building. Quiz sheets were available at a cost of £2 each to fill in the correct names, and monies raised will go towards the restoration of the East window which is in need of repair.

Three members of Capel Ladies – Di Barker, Shirley Ward and Pat Bradford, decorated our tree to represent the Sagrada Familia Cathedral in Barcelona.
