Further appeal from Gordon Hayes: Westway Food Bank

Good morning all

Please find below my weekly FB post regarding the situation at WOA foodbank. We remain really desperately short of many items and the very high distribution rate continues unabated. As always, any publicity would be greatly appreciated.

With very many thanks on behalf of WOA.

Best wishes
Gordon

Week commencing 15/7/20

An enormous thank you once again for all the hugely generous donations to Westway Open Arms food bank in Eastfield – people’s generosity is both amazing and humbling – it really all does make a huge difference. Over 80 emergency mainly family food bags are still being distributed weekly – thank you so much once again for making this possible.

We continue to run extremely short of the items listed below – many shelves have almost completely run out.

Please note we are unable to store and handle fresh fruit and vegetables. Currently we have a plentiful stock of pasta and tea bags. Food donations can generally be presented to the main entrance between 10am and 12 noon on Monday and Tuesday, or between 4pm and 6pm on Wednesday and Thursday. Alternatively I’m happy to have things left with me and I’ll take them across. There is a yellow box and wooden stall by my front door to drop things in – I can sort it from there.

With very many thanks again – and please continue to share ?

Showing the Archive

Growing interest is being shown in the Club’s Archive here on the website. The Archive is designed to digitise the history of Round Tabling in Scarborough, to try to bring it up to date, to have a reference point for new members to peruse, and to give your Editor something useful to do over lockdown.

We are all grateful to those who have shared their momentos and photographs to date. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to contribute. Or you can add your comments to each Archive item here on the website.

Stay in touch with new Archive items as they occur by subscribing to the website (top right).

Finally, as we have had no meeting reports for a while, I have dropped it from the home page and substituted the Archive category instead. Once we get back to our usual 41 Club routine we can put the reports back in their rightful place.

Eddie Gregory RIP – the Order of Service

Nigel has received a copy of the Order of Service from Eddie’s funeral sent to him by Ros.

Nigel has kindly scanned two of the photos from the Order of Service so we can all remember Eddie.

A great guy and very much missed by us all.

Sad News: Eddie Gregory RIP

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that my great friend and stalwart of Scarborough Round Table, Eddie Gregory, passed away on Thursday evening.

I am sure that we all have wonderful memories of Eddie. When something needed doing for Round Table, Eddie was always to the fore, particularly if it needed his ingenuity as an engineer. I remember him waging a one-man war to protect the Round Table wishing well in Peasholm Park with all sorts of complex metal contraptions.

He would always be very welcoming to new members and made sure that they were fully involved in the club. Socially he was the glue that held together many of our gatherings.

I am sure that you will join me in sending Ros, Sarah and Stuart our commiserations and I know that our thoughts will be with them at this difficult time.

Nigel Sheppard

Eddie was Chairman of Scarborough 41 Club in the 2000/1 year.

Eddie was a great friend during all my time in Table and afterwards. Whether it was organising Rallies, putting on cabarets (including stripping down to his undies), Eddie was always there and always ready to play his part and do his bit. And of course, whenever our ladies were called upon, with the lovely Ros by his side.

I don’t remember him being ruffled by anything, and he took part in so many of our activities with great humour and joyfulness. He will be much missed by all who knew him.

Staying connected in the Virus Crisis

When we are in isolation, and with the threat of a greater lock-down imminent, it is important not to lose contact with family and friends.

One of the excellent tools to do this is Zoom, an app built from the ground up as a video-conferencing tool. It is cross-platform, and will run on all machines, including PCs, laptops tablets and smartphones. It is free to use for private purposes.

We use this to converse with our family all at once across the world, bringing everyone together in line of sight.

If you would like help to set up this tool, or with any other IT connectivity matter, please get in touch. Happy to help. Remotely!

Best wishes, stay connected, stay safe, stay apart.

Help available during the Virus Crisis

There is a growing requirement for self-isolation during the current crisis.

Support is available from other members for any 41 Club member if, through the requirement for social distancing, you need help for shopping, other supplies, or for any other matter.

Please don’t feel you need to bear this problem without friendly support. Please contact the Web Editor and we’ll get onto it.

CANCELLED: Scarborough 41 Club AGM

Dear Member,

The Club’s AGM, originally scheduled for 16 April 2020 at the Crescent Hotel, is now cancelled.

The Chairman and Secretary, with our committee, will be making suitable arrangements for revised arrangements as and when matters become clearer. We are all moving in uncharted waters.

Keep safe and we will meet again when the virus crisis has passed.

Important message from the Chairman re the Coronovirus

Dear Members,

I have discussed matters regarding the Coronovirus with our committee and I have spoken with Tom concerning the virus issues. It has also been confirmed that other organisations in town such as Rotary Cavaliers have cancelled all meetings until at least Easter.

I have now made the very sad decision that the Anton’s meeting this Thursday should be cancelled. Tom C, our Catering Officer, has contacted them to advise them of this yesterday (Monday) but he will keep us informed if there is any further feedback from them. We will arrange to visit them at a convenient date in the future.

The general feeling was that we should also postpone the AGM in April, but Tom is to report back concerning this matter.

Worrying times, Gentlemen.

Keep yourselves safe and see you soon.

Stephen Slade
Chairman, Scarborough 41 Club

CANCELLED Raising awareness of Brain Tumour Research and Support

A message from Richard Grunwell:

Please convey to Club Members the proposal, as sanctioned by our Chairman and our Catering Officer, for as many members as possible to congregate on Marine Drive on Thursday, 19 March, by the statue of Freddie at 6.20pm on our way to Anton’s Restaurant.

This is to have a photograph taken, with Freddie at the centre, to raise awareness of Brain Tumour Research and Support (BTRS), of which Ellie’s Fund is now a part.

Each March, BTRS, runs Flat Cap Friday, and Freddie wear a very large one!

The photo will then be submitted to BTRS. BTRS is a Yorkshire-based Charity.

Please try to be there wearing a Flat Cap (Dominic has several spare).
