News - February 2021

Hi guys,

Trust everyone is doing ok - it can't be long now until we get our freedoms back!
I have bumped into a few CMS members while out "taking exercise" and everyone I spoke to remains resolutely positive but missing the shed and looking forward to getting together again soon.
Lions Club, New Milton
Allen Hennah brought this to our attention.
If you missed out on the previous round of tests run by the Lions, this home testing kit might be of interest - especially if you don't want the hassle of visiting your doctor at the present time.
The test kit costs £24.99 - full details can be found on the above link.
There is also an article on Page 50 of the latest issue of the Highcliffe Herald
Free Will Writing Month
Les Mercer reminds us to make sure our wills are up to date and forwarded the following link which is valid through March in the Bournemouth area.
Even if you don't use this service, it is worth checking that everything is in order will-wise - Les has personal experience of the problems that can occur when this is not the case!
Extra comment added by Les: I know of three people who lost out on sharing £110,000 because someone left it too late to sign their will.
I will aim to get the next Shed News out at the end of the month when just maybe (teaser alert) I will have some good news to share.
In the meantime, you might want to send me details / pictures of your lockdown projects......I hope you haven't just been sitting on the sofa!
