Dear Nyasalander
Most of our members have been advised that with the continuing Coronavirus pandemic our Reunion 2020, due to be held on 9th July, is cancelled. Thank you for your support in this very unfortunate matter.
Ken Wilkinson ~ 1st April 2020


Moni Amayi ndi Abambo ~ April 2020
At this time when so many parts of the world, including the UK, are suffering from the Coronavirus pandemic, our thoughts must be with all, wherever they may be, whose lives are affected by it. With self isolation in very many cases use of the internet by way of Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp, etc, has become the answer to see family and friends and chat face to face with them from anywhere worldwide - I hope, where possible, you are taking advantage of this facility.

The necessary cancellation of our 2020 Reunion (as above) was a great disappointment to us all. This event had been an annual feature of Association life for the previous 14 years and has many happy memories for so many of us. Accordingly I have added a few words about these memorable occasions in Chitchat 2020.

A reminder from February - Missing Persons Section ~ please advise us if you have any knowledge of those named below:
J Anderson, N J Baker, A E W Bayliss, G Dean (Geoff), J E Brewster (Ted), J G Castles (John), G Daniels, T E McVay (Tom), I T Hone (Ian), W E Jones, P Sheffield (Paul), J Webster (Jack), C I Martin (Chris), J E McArdle (John), J McIlwraith, R A Mills, E W Mitchell (Ernie), K Moore, A J Stevens, J H Teal (Jack), R W Wadman, J C Wiseman (Johnny), K Wykes (Ken), W R Berry (Bill).

In conclusion I was sad to learn, belatedly, and with deep regret of the passing of Pauline Wilkes on January 1st this year and of Mike Clift some two years ago.

Musical Interlude
This new and accursed coronavirus has produced conditions with which we are totally at a loss. People compare it with the wartime restrictions but unlike the enemy then, this one is invisible and completely random. So, for a ray of hope, optimism or faith click here for this one by Abba which maybe fits the bill.
