Message from the President
I hope everyone is coping during this pandemic.  Initially, like some people, I struggled to change my behaviour, whether it was physical distancing or simply touching items unnecessarily. Looking back, everything has happened so quickly over the past month.  For me, I find walking in our surrounding bushland is good therapy. Those who have mailed in your subscriptions, thank you of course, but we will delay banking them until circumstances improve.    
I have received some emails from various sources.  If you haven’t already received them, I believe they are worth sharing. They are listed below.  
If my memory is correct (it fails me sometimes) I read in a book that the Spanish Flu arrived in Australia in 1919 with the returning WW1 soldiers. The pandemic was being contained in army barracks in Victoria until one soldier, who was missing his family so much, went AWOL and scarpered up to Sydney. The rest as they say ,is history.  I’m challenging my learned readers to either correct me or confirm my assumptions. Best entry will be offered a position on the next Trust committee.     
Anyway, with Easter upon us please do not travel unnecessarily, keep safe and adhere to the guidelines.   
President (still)
