Hello everyone ,
I hope you are keeping well.
During this difficult time we have all being doing our best to avoid contact with everybody and unfortunately that means separate ourselves from our friends and family.

I am forced to to stay within my property boundary being of a certain age and health. I cannot carry on my hobby of photography or volunteer at the Leighton Buzzard Steam Railway because we have suspended services. I hope you will visit us once we get going again.

At least we still have the canal Tow Path to get away from it. There are still some less frequented areas for runners to have their daily exercise.

Getting back to our schedule I again advise now that all our meetings at The Globe and visits are suspended for the foreseeable future.
Your Committee have put together a program of events which I will publish in the not too distant future.

I will prepare the next Winding Point Magazine and see whether I can get it printed if not, I will give the on line version another try.if I have your e-mail address.
.
Please keep an eye on the page here for details of future events when we are able to recommence activities.

Keep safe and keep well

Andrew
PS Last trip on water was the Thames as some rubbish boats travelling towards Tower Bridge.
