Sadly the war continues in Ukraine and Putin’s tactic of restricting gas supplies to Europe has resulted in enormous increases in our energy costs. The new Prime Minister, Liz Truss, has announced a price cap in an attempt to keep the costs down and, of course, this provides scammers with more opportunities to scam you out of your money. Please be very careful with any unexpected phone calls or emails promising you cash rebates or special offers. NO legitimate energy provider will contact you to offer you a refund. Don’t become a victim of a scam!
It is the 8th September and I have just heard of the loss of our Queen. Having seen photos of her meeting the new Prime Minister, Liz Truss, this death seems very sudden. The news came to many as a shock and I feel sure that many of you will also feel that this is a sudden and tragic loss to our country. What an incredible role model she was during those 70 years as Queen. We will have a new King, Charles III and the country will go through a period of mourning leading to the funeral of Elizabeth II.
September sees the start of our new programme of monthly talks. This month our speaker is Tony Harris who will be talking about Henry VII – the king who introduced the reign of the Tudors. He was a king who brought about change in England. By the 28th September we may have some ideas as to how our new king will be bringing about change.
I look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday 28th September at 2pm at Crockham Hill Village Hall.
