St Peter’s School opened this week for the groups allowed by the Government, that is, Reception and Years 1 and 6. There were Staff cars in the car-park and a small number of pupils seen arriving at the school but of course, none of the usual crowds outside the gates and no cars parked in the street.
The ‘Clapping for the NHS’ was supposed to stop this week, but several people in the Wallheath area seemed disposed to carry on, if only to see a few neighbours and enjoy a friendly chat. This did not happen, however, possibly because of the rather wet weather we have had lately which definitely continued on Thursday evening.
I have just been informed of the death of a lady from Stonnall, who had moved to Barton under Needwood with her husband a few years ago. Her husband died a while back, but the lady, Gwen Smith, continued to be in contact with various people in the village. The couple had been regular members of the Coffee Club and Gwen still received, by post, the Stonnall Church Magazine. Our sympathy and kind thoughts go to all the family members and friends.
