Since my last article we have gone into a very strict lockdown and been asked to stay in our homes, except for essential food shopping, keeping medical appointments, and brief visits into the open air for exercise. What a life, but better than spreading the virus everywhere. Because of this situation, we have decided to stop delivery of cake for Coffee Club members, at least for the time being. This is quite sad after six months of enjoyment but necessary for the general good.
There are no church services during January in either St John’s, Shenstone, or St Peter’s, Stonnall and both churches will remain closed until further notice. Now for the good news: the vaccine is here! Lichfield Cathedral is being used for the procedures, which are by appointment only.
