Ellingham Community Trust are keen to encourage the continued virtual social life you have been enjoying. Below is a message from ‘The Grahams’ about continuation of the virtual quiz.
From The Grahams:
I don’t know about you, but we are finding it all a bit confusing in terms when Lockdown ends- and what all that even means-and so we are a bit conflicted about Virtual Village, and how long we will keep these going in their present format. But we said we would one quiz a month, and one “social night” each month until Lockdown ends. We did a quiz two weeks ago, so technically it’s a social this Sunday. But, if I am honest I think Lockdown has affected Graham and I pretty badly we now seem to be finding ourselves unable to socialize without asking loads of questions of people…normal conversation seems too difficult somehow? So lets do a bit of a Social AND a Quiz on Sunday? Who knows, it might be our last if we can find a way of getting back into the real world very soon..
So, we will begin at 8.00PM, but any quizzing will not be starting quite at that time…because some of us will still be watching Newcastle trash Man City en route to Wembley (until about 8.15). So it’s a bit of a chat to start, then a bit of a quiz and then a bit of a debrief. Sound OK?
Same Room. Same Time. Zoom Room 780 329 6009- see you all on Sunday!

Trustees have received numerous applications for the Financial Assistance Scheme, here is just one of the responses from a successful applicant.
Please pass on my thanks & appreciation to the Trustees for the recent grant issued to me. I have decided to restart my business & begin working again for the time being (ie we don’t get stopped again), however, the past 6 weeks with no income has left me with a steep hill to climb to get out of debt. Your grant has helped stop the decline and given me a tremendous boost towards overcoming that.
