22nd February Announcement So, now we have had the latest plan for release from Cover-19 restrictions. And there are signs of hope!

The couple awoke,with a kiss and a cuddle.The boyfriend was nervous,his mind was a muddle. They headed downstairsand she opened his giftHe started to twitch,and he started to shift. As she opened the boxand she spotted the ring“I do!” she did cry,“I do!” she did sing.
