“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be.”

Anne Frank

Fortunate indeed are we if we can go outside, as many of us are once again confined to home, continuing the quiet contest against the spread of ‘Corona’.

It was hoped things might be safe enough for the RSV to recommence meetings come July. Time has really sprinted; it is now July, and it grieves us to have to admit that this would not at all be a safe moment to meet…nor is it possible to guess when might be.

We are so looking forward to resuming all our happy-making social activities around roses, so looking forward to seeing each other again. Dear member, we hope it will be soon.

As with increasingly leathery squeaky clean hands that crave cocoa butter, we keep being vigilant, keep up the distancing, we send warm smiles of encouragement. More power to us all.

We’ll keep you appraised of any updates as they come to light.
