This'll cheer you all up!

Here we go, the latest Newsletter is now available to read online or download here if you prefer. You can also click on the Newsletter link at the bottom of any of our website pages. This is jam-packed with all the very latest news, and been produced in double-quick time with our wonderful Printer even working on New Years Day to get it ready super-quick.

Those supporters who have requested a hard copy - yours has gone in the post today, so you should receive it very soon. It has been surprising this past year to find something of a reversal than in previous years, with more people requesting to move back to preferring a hard copy than to read it online. Possibly people find they spend too much time staring at screens these days, and our Social Bubbles can then easily share. With it being some 18 months since the last edition, I have included an option-note with some copies to check if a paper copy is still required - I don't mind posting them out if that's how people prefer it; I find it easier to pass around the family than trying to read one on a screen anyway.

You will soon see that being in Lockdown doesn't mean a quiet life; all areas of the sanctuary work have been kept very busy indeed!

This is a bumper issue of some 40 pages covering 2019 and 2020 in full; I hope you enjoy reading it, as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Thak you all for your continued support. Take Care, Keep Safe and Well.
