Future Events and upcoming Forums
With the lifting of the final restriction on June 21st, COPE is planning to restart its social activities.
The St Ives Group is having their first meeting this year on Thursday, 15th July at the Corn Exchange, St Ives from 2 to 4pm. All are welcome for a social meeting and quiz. Further meetings will be held on the third Thursday of every month at the Corn Exchange from 2 to 4pm. The following meeting will be on the 19th August when there will be a talk “The Riverport down the Ages” by Ian Dobson and Chris Lewis. Also note that COPE will be represented at a charity fair organised by the Rotary Club of St Ives on the 18th July at Slepe Hall from 10am to 4pm, which we trust COPE members will support.
We are planning to start Queen Edith's Lunch sessions on Wednesday 14th July at Queen Edith's Chapel, Wulfstan Way from 12 to 2pm. As before, bring along a light lunch for sharing. Future meetings will be every third Wednesday of the month.
The Committee have been considering what form new social activities could take once Covid is over. One proposal is to have Sing-along Cafes. We are proposing to initially start one at St Luke's Community Hall, if there is sufficient interest in such an activity where music is provided and those present can sing or join in to the best of their ability. Later, if there is interest and demand, members could form a Choir. Please note details in the June/July Newsletter (page 16) of the St Ives Dementia Choir.
Please telephone the COPE office (01223 364303) and let us know whether you would be interested, and whether you would prefer morning, lunch time or afternoon Sing-alongs. Moreover, if in your area there are community or other halls where such events could be held and there are interested members. We have a pianist interested in helping with the music, but again any other musician who would like to help would be more than welcome.
The AGM will be belatedly held on Monday 16th August at St Luke's Church Hall at 10.30am We are uncertain as to whether we will be allowed to provide a light lunch, but hopefully we will be able to provide tea, coffee and soft drinks. Please telephone the office to ensure you register for the meeting.
