Publicity During Covid Lockdown – 16

July proved to be a good month for magazine publicity despite the loss of the Chineham Chat and Popley Matters and for some reason the Link (Oakley & surrounds) for once, did not include our report about Richard Stettner doing business in Russia. However four magazines did us proud and the Basinga Extra carried the short version on their web site.

There was an element of calendar variances as three of the quarterlies caught up with our previous reports – the Winklebury Way used Stephen Thair’s report about meeting Prince Philip and two CommunityAd magazines – Bramley & Sherfield also had the Prince Philip meeting and the Old Basing & Lychpit Parish Council Community Newsletter ran with Chris Perkins’ Pyrean adventures.

Funeral of Sibyl Wood

The funeral of Sibyl Wood, wife of our president Richard Wood, took place on Monday 12 July.

A celebration of Sibyl’s life was held at St James’s church in Bramley and afterwards there was a private family cremation.

Current regulations restricted the congregation at the church to less than fifty with everyone spaced out on different pews. Probus Club members attending were Geoff and Ann Twine, Fred and Susan Locke, Alan and Anne Porter and Paul Flint with Janet Fagg who also represented the Ladies Probus Club.
