Sonning Art Group members

appreciated the opportunity to

socialise again after the long

separation caused by Covid

when they met at Sonning Golf

Club for their Christmas lunch.

Special thanks was given to their

chairman, Sue Bell for her work

throughout the pandemic and

supporting other members. Sue (far

flowers from Maggie Hollidge.

Covid did not stop the members

Varilone and George Gallocker's

watercolour painted for a

Christmas card (below).

Thank you

for Sonning



Trefor Fisher, one of the organisers

of the Sonning Support help service

during the ongoing Covid pandemic,

would like to say a very big thank

you to all the volunteers who have

helped Sonning residents during

this time.

Assistance has been given in many

ways, such as shopping, picking up

prescriptions, dog walking, calling

anxious and vulnerable residents

and so on.

Trefor said: 'We have had many

expressions of gratitude in return from

those that have received help.

'Now that the Covid-19 virus is

becoming much more part of our daily

lives, most residents are back to their

almost normal lives.

'Our dedicated phone line and email

address have been very little used in

recent months and have now been taken

down. That of course is good news but

we would like to stress that Sonning

Support is still very much in operation.'

Should you, your neighbour,

or friend require assistance with

anything, not necessarily Covid

related, call Trefor Fisher on 0778

988 0072 and the Sonning Support

team will do whatever they can to
