More gifts donated to the Salvation Army

December 6, 2020

A 2nd batch of gifts have been handed over to the Salvation Army in Bath. Members from our club chose appropriate toys for every age group but particularly children so that they can enjoy some Christmas gifts this year. It’s been a particularly daunting year for many vulnerable families so hopefully this will help some of them and bring a bit of joy into their lives.

A selection of toys and books.

Zoom meeting with the Mayor of Bath

December 4, 2020

Thursday 3rd December our club had the pleasure of zooming in with the Mayor of Bath, Manda Rigby for a very interesting talk from her detailing her time as Mayor during Covid-19. It isn’t the year that she was expecting and she has had to make many changes including all of her social events being done through social media. Her passion and theme for the year is loneliness and she has succeeded in reaching out to many local organisations. It was a pleasure to chat to Manda and we hope to see her in person for more of a chat next year when things are back to some sort of normality!
