Zoom Meetings are scheduled for Monday evenings (7,30 p.m.) on 5th July, 19th July, 2nd August and 16th August, ID 693 819 5805 (passcode 928886) as usual. You should have this listed in the dropdown box of your “Join Meeting” page by now!
On Monday 5th July at 7.30 p.m., Julian will be showing us a display of WW2: Guernsey Philately under the German Occupation. As this will no doubt give rise to questions and conversation, please arrive promptly…we might have to overrun our 40 minutes! After the Meeting, I will add Julian’s beautifully written-up pages to our website SLIDESHOWS page for the benefit of our non-Zoomers…many thanks again!
David watched an inspiring Zoom display by Simon Martin-Redman, hosted by the Henley Philatelic Society (9th June) on “The aesthetics of Stamp Collecting” and was so impressed that he has put together 9 or so pages on the similar theme, “Stamp Presentation as an Art Form”, which he will show us on 19th July.
Simon is offering a display of ‘Wild Shrimps and Wilder Perforations” on 2nd August…any guesses? (think Nigeria). If you have any scanned material that you would like to display at our Zoom Meetings, or even just add to our web pages for general interest, please contact me.
David reports that he has spoken with the senior steward at Rosehill Methodist Church, Jeremy Dawe, who confirmed that there is no change to the current situation, i.e. the buildings continue to be only used for church services and the Wednesday food bank. If after 19 July the Government removes all or most restrictions, the Rosehill Church will then have to follow the hiring instructions issued by the Methodist Church to all its congregations. Jeremy confirmed that the roof repairs had been completed — but recent heavy rain has produced some problems. We all hope that the Rooms will be available to us on 13th September, when we would hold a brief AGM and all enjoy some stamp “bring and buy” and conversation!
See you on Monday 5th July….Priscilla.
