Julie and Gav’s virtual Castle session online Sunday evenings, 7.30pm

Keep in touch during the pandemic with live tunes and songs 

I hope you’re all keeping well and still taking great care of yourselves…

Our series of Sunday night Zoom singaround/tunearounds continues each Sunday night. As always, the agenda is intended to be trad, old fashioned and entertaining.

Gav sends out a link during Sunday.

If you’ve been before you should be on the list and will be invited anyway. If you haven’t and would like to be, please drop us a line at gmatkin@gmail.com.

We start at 7.30pm (lines open at around 7.15pm for those who need to fiddle with their technology or would like to chat) and plan to run until our usual pub-closer at 9.30pm or a little after (we try to think of our neighbours).

Old friends and new friends in other parts of the country are very welcome!

Singdanceandplay events cancelled until further notice

It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce that planned Singdanceandplay events are cancelled for the coming months.

Following the barndance cancellation, we had hoped to continue with the smaller events, including those at Horsmonden and Brenchley. However, as we’re probably all aware from the news, the threat of coronavirus/Covid-19 has continued to grow, as has the scale of government responses around the world.

What seems undeniable is the threat it poses to those of us who are for one reason or another especially vulnerable to developing pneumonia following infection – and that applies to folks with breathing disorders, diabetes or who have compromised immune systems, which may arise due to a range of medical and surgical causes.

Gavin has asthma and cannot risk being infected with a virus that for him has such a high risk of serious illness. This is particularly true when we know healthcare services will surely be overwhelmed and unable to provide the care we would expect in normal times.

He’s far from alone in this, of course.

Please take great care of yourselves, everyone, and make sure you follow the official advice, tiresome though it is.

We promise that we’ll be back with more events when this time is behind us.

Julie and Gavin
