President Bill, along with others, has been hard at work on financial matters.

Vice President Barbara is busy sewing Scrubs for Stepping Hill Hospital whilst others have been busy knitting pairs of coloured woollen hearts for the Covid Ward there.
Lamplighters annual Open Gardens day has not been cancelled it has moved in to the modern world with a two hour Zoom session on 17th May !! Working alongside Sustainable Living in the Heatons, people are being invited to join a Zoom meeting where photos of the gardens will be shown plus videos of four of the gardens, followed by an answer and questions session with the gardeners themselves.
Taking one hour, this session will be followed for another hour by SLH talking about Gardening for Wildlife and The Edible Garden. Whod have ever though it.
Lamplighters send their best wishes to all other Rotarians in the area and sign off with Stay home and Stay safe "
