What a strange world we live in. How is it that an isolated incidence of poor animal hygiene can lead to the collapse of major businesses, including airlines, and place most of the world in virtual house arrest? The only silver-lining that I can find in all of this is that the virus isn’t Ebola (death rate of 65% or thereabouts, compared to 2-3% for Covid-19). Thank the Lord.

No services this month and the Directory is missing because no events are now planned (Even Churchyard Tidying is cancelled...) But we welcome with open arms Revd. Christine Gillespie’s Dear Friends article. And Mr Reliable, Tony Service, apprises us about services and events (real and now cancelled!) on the Methodist Circuit including Nancy Hare’s 100th Birthday. Happy Birthday Nancy!

Hilary Putman reports on the Soroptimist International’s quiz that was held in Eggborough Village Hall. And Jan Tetley brings together the tributes paid to the lovely Kath Schofield who died sadly in February.

Finally I report on Breakfast with Bishops, the Revd. Roy Shaw’s excellent work in the St Dorcas Orphanage in Kenya, Jumble Sales and Rubber Ducks.

Please note that most of the paper copies will not be available this month because of problems with delivery. If you would like a paper copy please let me know, and I’ll let you have once we are allowed out again.
