TUESDAY 13th April
A chilly day today! Plenty good folk in town taking advantage of the shops being open again. There has been a constant stream of very hairy men at the Barber's Shop in Upper Brook Street. But they are completely refreshed and ready to face the world again when they emerge after having had their locks trimmed!
There was a near fatality at Bardea Beach when a lady walking her dog on the sands got caught by the incoming tide and all the wonderful rescue services including out great Ulverston Inshore Rescue adn the Coastguard helicopter, together with others rescue services, managed to rescue her and her dog. Morecambe Bay can be trecherous, particularly to the unwary, and it is very easy to be caught out. There have been numerous tragedies over the years.
I met up with Helen and David, Lisa and Dennis, at Canal Foot. The Bay Horse was shut but Helen had, very wisely, come prepared with a couple of bottles and glasses! Lisa and Dennis are visiting foe a few days and they are both looking very well.. It's lovely to see them after a whole year!
Stay Safe! Stay Alert!

Monday 12th April
A lot has happened since my last blog! I celebrated my 80th Birthday on 8th April adn I was extremely fortunate enough to receive lots of Greetings, Cards and Gifts! Thank you all for you wonderful generosity and kindness!
It was theGrand National on Saturday and guess who picked the winner!!! Me!!!
H.R.H. The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh passed away. A great sadeness. He was loyal to our Queen and Country. "Duty Done". I laid a wreath at the Market Cross on behalf of the Ulverston Traders' Association as a humble token. There is another wreath there too from the Mysterious Ulverston Curry Club.
The Town is open for business again! Non-essential shops and businesses are permitted to re-open and hopefully theis will work well and that further relazxations in the Covid Rules will follow.
Stay Safe- Stay alert!

TUESDAY 6th April.
Back top work after a lovely Easter weekend break. It was very full with plenty going on and a wode range of weather too. From glorious sunshine and high temperatures to VERY chilly and even some snow "on the tops".
The office window was suitable decorated with pussy willow branches and lots of Easter Eggs too.
I watched the Boat Races on tv. Both races being won by Cambridge. I was stuned at the result of the Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse. The winner ( Freewheeling Dillan ) romped home at odds of 150.1 !!!!! A bet of £10 each way would have returned £1820. A nice pick-up or anyone! Next weekend it's the Grand National. Oooooh! Who will win that race? Will it be the favourite ( Cloth Cap) ?
The Roadmap seems to be more certain, with non-essential shops and businesses opening next Monday. Wonderfu news.
Lets hope and trust that matters do proceed smoothly and without a hitch.
Stay Safe. Stay Alert.
