Lagos Area afpop Newsletter March 2021
Hello One and All,
Not a lot to report although the restaurants are shortly allowed to open their doors. Not quite to welcome you inside but we can sit on the terrace and have a meal out. I’m not able to arrange any get-togethers yet either as only four people can meet at a time but it is a start. If we can get over Easter without another spike we may be on the way to some form of interaction with others.
I would like to thank those who have lent/given me books and jigsaws which have kept me going during the last few months. Some were from afpop members who have written books and I thought that it might be an idea to keep a list of these books so that others might enjoy reading what fellow members have written. So, if you have written a book please send me the title, a short synopsis and where it can be bought. I’ll keep a list and will mention it occasionally so that other members can contact me for details. It will be interesting to know what stories we afpoppers have to tell.
The GNR visits regularly, to check that all is well in and around our area, as part of the Secure Residents Programme. Get in touch with me if you like for more information about what they do or if you are interested in them patrolling round by you too. They come and have a quick chat on the doorstep every few weeks just to make sure you are not worried about anything. Last week, they said that water meters are being stolen – presumably for the metal content – so do report anything you think that looks suspiciously like theft in that area.
Another week and the clocks will go forward an hour. Another week and the vaccination roll-out will get to more people – I am aware that quite a few of you have had the first jab. Another week and it might be my turn! Another week and maybe fewer restrictions, fingers crossed. Another week and the warm weather may be here to stay, not that I am not complaining now about the hours of beautiful sunshine that we are experiencing just now.
So let’s keep our chins up, put a smile on our faces, and look forward to better days ahead.
