News from Friends - We    are    happy    to    report    that    a cheerful,   long   letter   has   been   received   from   Julie   R.   who remains    at    Hawkesbury    Lodge.       Sadly,    due    to    current restrictions   she   has   been   unable   to   see   her   husband,   family or   friends   for   8   weeks.     We   are   sure   she   would   welcome   a card,   letter   or   phone   call   to   keep   in   touch   with   us.     She   is following    the    weekly    services    but    misses    church    and Women’s Own.
