  14 August

Wellingborough Council have updated their COVID 19 advice this week (see below). For the time being we will continue to hold services in church, but please do check the newsletter each week as this may need to change in response to any local lockdown.

We will continue to record the services and post onto YouTube, so if you are in a vulnerable category or feel uncomfortable coming back to church you can join in with our worship online.

Coronavirus (COVID-19): services, facilities and guidance
Latest information

Residents of Wellingborough (alongside residents of Northampton, Kettering and Corby) are being urged to take action as the number of cases has risen above the national rate. We need to work together to avoid a local lockdown.

We all need to take some simple steps:

•    Limit contact with others outside your household or bubble.

•    Work from home if you can.

•    Keep 2 metres from others at all times, use a face covering where you are less than 2 metres apart.

•    Avoid using public transport or car sharing, wear face coverings if you cannot avoid these.

•    Avoid meeting those outside of your household or bubble in an indoor space.

•    Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly for 20 seconds each time.

•    Do not share items with others outside of your household or bubble.
Magazine deadline

If you have any items for the September magazine, please send them to John by Sunday 16 August.

Film quiz winners

Congratulations to Bob & Margaret Addie who won the film quiz with 90 perfectly matching answers to our 100 clues, and out of the 10 they didn't get right only 3 were actually wrong, and 7 were convincingly good alternatives.

Everyone who took part, thank you very much. You came up with quite a few unexpected and witty answers.

John will publish the clues and the answers in the next magazine.
