Some of you will know that that I was seriously ill from just before Christmas and spent several weeks in hospital in intensive care and in a medical ward followed by a long stay in a rehabilitation centre finally being allowed home in late April, underweight and physically very weak. This halted work on the Spring Newsletter.
    When I was well enough to work on NL,66 my computer would not start or run properly and I feared that my documents had been lost. However our computer genius, Richard Cannon, managed to repair my machine….and save my documents. Thank you Richard.
