CORONA CHRONICLE EDITION 15
CHANGE IS CERTAIN
A survey in 1924 when Olive was 5 years old showed
that 4% of the population was living in extreme poverty. (A tremendous
improvement from the period before 1914 when it was about 10%). Milky Way
chocolate bars had just been brought in. It would be another 4 years before
Penicillin would be available.
THE GREAT REALISATION BY TOM ROBERTS '
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Comment from a newspaper This relaxation of restrictions is at best, a load of nonsense, and at worst, a severe threat to anyone who has underlying health issues - Covid 19 kills! They seem to concentrate on reporting the number of deaths every day, and I concede that is coming down. But the more important measure is the number of new infections every day, and that is still hovering around 1000. That's 7 thousand new infections per week, or 28,000 per month, and that's just the ones we know about.
I'm preparing for a new outbreak just like SAGE advised us in their last briefing - they were extremely guarded in that announcement. And opening up all these unnecessary social venues like: pubs, cinemas, restaurants, could be asking for trouble - I don't trust all of the general public to be cautious.
New Zealand had a new outbreak 8wks after they eradicated the virus from their country - ironically they let someone in from London. Wuhan had a spike, so too did S.Korea and Germany is still struggling.
I just wish Boris was more positive in his handling of the virus. - we had a late and weak lockdown and it came too late. We could've eradicated the virus by now and be back to full strength with the economy. Now we may have to live with it for months to come. Be highly cautious everybody and if you must go out, then take care of yourselves.

A major incident has been declared in Bournemouth after thousands of people flocked to the beach on the hottest day of the year. Sun-seekers packed the beach as temperatures soared to 32C, with officials describing the scenes as "appalling". Bournemouth Council Leader Vikki Slade said: “We are absolutely appalled at the scenes witnessed on our beaches, particularly at Bournemouth and Sandbanks, in the last 24-48 hours. "The irresponsible behaviour and actions of so many people is just shocking and our services are stretched to the absolute hilt trying to keep everyone safe. We have had no choice now but to declare a major incident and initiate an emergency response."
The scenes comes just days after Prime Minister Boris Johnson eased more lockdown measures, which will see pubs, bars and restaurants reopen from July 4. The council said declaring a 'major incident' would allow different emergency services to coordinate more together to tackle the issues. Services were left completely over-stretched as visitors arrived in large volumes resulting in widespread problems of illegal parking, excessive waste, anti-social behaviour, gridlock on roads and prohibited overnight camping, reports the Mirror.
BCP Council issued 558 parking enforcement fines – the highest on record – and responded to many reports of cars parking and causing an obstruction.
28TH JUNE 2020 3RD SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY
Genesis Ch 22 vs. 1-14
Romans Ch. 6 vs. 12 – end
Almighty God, who hast broken the tyranny of sin and hast sent the Spirit of thy Son into our hearts, whereby we call thee Father: give us grace to dedicate our freedom to thy service, that the whole world may be brought to the glorious liberty of the children of God; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
NOTE We are planning to have a service in church on 5th July at 11.00 am. We will be making the necessary provisions so that everyone who comes can feel safe. Those are; sanitising gel and social distancing on the path and in the church. It will be a service of Holy Communion. At the administration of the Communion you will only be offered the bread and that will take place at the bottom of the first step to the altar rail. You are free to come just for a Blessing if you prefer. Just keep your hands by your sides. You are also free to remain in your seats. The sidespeople will guide you in the church to your seat and into and out of the Chancel for Communion. We are not allowed to sing hymns. It will seem a little strange but hopefully none-the-less a service of worship offered to God. Eric will continue to record his sermons on the Website and on his facebook page. It will be very helpful if you would send Bob Steel a note by e -mail to indicate if you plan to attend. Thank you
Olive Patten (101yrs old) is now in “The Wharf Care Home”, Stourport-on-Severn. Bob Steel has sent round details of it by an e-mail so please do write to Olive.
Keith McKay is now at home with a living-in carer. You can try telephoning Keith on his landline. I suggest you do that in a morning as he is much better at that time of the day.
