40°C Expected – Post Office Open Today – Closed Friday

The Post Office will be open this morning (Tuesday) until 12 noon at the Comrades Hall. It will be closed on Friday, 22nd as post master, Peter has contracted Covid.  We very much appreciate the services they provide and wish Peter a speedy recovery.

Until this week, the highest temperature in the UK recorded was 38.7°C, in Cambridge in July 2019.

A high of 38.1°C was recorded in Suffolk yesterday.  The U.K. is bracing itself for higher temperatures today.  To keep cool and avoid heat exhaustion and/or heatstroke, please read the following advice:

  • Drink water.
  • Eat foods with a high water content
  • Wear loose clothing, breathable fabrics
  • Wear a hat
  • Stay in the shade where possible.
  • Limit your travel & exercise
  • Use fans, ice packs to cool down.
  • Take lukewarm, not cold showers.
  • Put nightwear in the fridge

The NHS recommends keeping all babies under six months out of direct sunlight, and older infants should be kept out of the sun as much as possible, particularly between 11:00hrs and 15:00hrs.
They should be kept in the shade or under a sunshade if they’re in a buggy or pushchair.

Spaces Available – Comrades Hall 100 Club

For the first time in a long time – there are several spaces available in Broadwindsor’s 100 Club at the Comrades Hall. This is mainly due to so many people leaving the village over the last year.  So! For those who have just moved into the village or for those who have always wondered how to be included – now is your opportunity.

Payment is only £15 for the year.  The draws occur quarterly and 6 prizes are awarded: £75; £50; £25; £15; £10 and £5.  A full compliment of 100 Members is required to meet those prizes.  All proceeds go to maintaining the Comrades Hall.

Joyce and Sally will be pleased to take your subscription.  They will be at the Comrades Hall alongside the Post Office Outreach service on Friday 19th at 10am – 12 noon  Alternatively, put your remittance through either of their doors, clearly stating who it is from, or contact them if you have any questions or to pay by BACS.

Please make cheques payable to Comrades Hall.

Donation To Post Office Users Group

Jacqui Sewell has donated a Buffalo Boiling Water Dispenser to the Post Office Users Group at Broadwindsor’s Comrades Hall.  This will save the volunteers repeatedly boiling kettles.

Before the pandemic, the Group offered regular teas and coffees when the Outreach Post Office services were there Tuesday and Friday mornings.  Jacqui Sewell will be offering drinks when she is there next Tuesday, 19th October.

Photographed with Jacqui are Val & Colin Lawrence from Burstock who timed it right this morning to test it out and to enjoy a cuppa and a chat.
