General

  • The weather's looking perfect for tomorrow's Gwulo lunchtime meetup (Thursday, 7th November) - we'll be at the outdoor seating area of the American Club in Central, which has great views. Hope to see you there.
  • If any UK readers would like to attend Barbara Anslow's funeral service and celebration of her life next Monday, 11th November, Jill has kindly forwarded these details from Barbara's daughter:
    • Barbara’s funeral will be held at the Sacred Heart and St Francis Catholic Church in Frinton-on-Sea on 11th November at 1.45pm followed by a cremation at Weeley Crematorium at 3.30pm and a celebration of her life at Frinton Cricket Club afterwards.

      Please do let anyone you know who may wish to attend.  We received truly wonderful support from St Helena Hospice based in Colchester who enabled us to care for her at home until the end which was her fervent wish, if you could let everyone know that we would ask in lieu of flowers anyone who wishes to could send a donation on Mum's behalf to this charity.
