Well I guess none of us saw this virus coming our way. What terrible sadness and loneliness this virus has brought with it. I do want to look more positively though and say what amazing kindness and compassion. People throughout the village have shown at this time of need. Helping with shopping, collecting prescriptions,
walking dogs, making contact via phone calls and generally helping all those who have had to isolate themselves for health reasons.
Dave Carrington has continued, with Dawn's help, to bring Church to us in the community. A super service every week can be found on Youtube (links available from www.efpchurch.org.uk. I do hope you have picked up the links on Feniton Focus and Facebook so that you can enjoy the services.You can watch them when you then have time. If you don’t have access to social media and you would like an e mail link please contact us via efpchurch.org.uk and we will arrange an email with a link for you.
One good piece of news for us at St. Andrews last week is that our vicar can now go into the church. This means Dave will be able to film some of the service from the church which will be lovely to see.
The Angelics continue to keep the Churchyard under control, in a very safe and socially distanced way. David Lanning continues with the paperwork in our quest to have swift boxes installed in the tower and hopefully see the return of swifts to our village. A huge sadness was the cancellation of The Friends of St Andrews usual Plant Sale weekend. Not to be outdone by a virus Val and her team have continued with the sale of all the plants.
When life is restored to our new normal I hope we will be able to plan the biggest get together, a chance to talk, reflect, celebrate and plan a way forward.
Lastly a huge vote of thanks to Gary Grove and all of his team at the Spar shop.They have been amazing and kept the village well supplied throughout the last few weeks.
Meanwhile if we can help at all please contact David or I as below. Take care and stay safe.
