Pelican Winter 2019

From the Manager s Desk

Hi Everyone, Brrrrr… here we go again—Winter, cold nights, even colder mornings and so dark in the afternoons it almost feels like the middle of the night when we’re off home for the day. This time of year is also cold and flu season, and from all the reports thus far— this one is going to be dreadful. For those of you who haven’t as yet had your flu shots, it’s probably a good time to have it done. Those who choose not to, or can’t—stay rugged up as much as possible. For those who remain here, it’s fantastic to see activities evolve like the Tuesday craft afternoon. Even if it is cold and wet outside, the Community Room is warm and regardless of what craft takes your fancy, you can find something to occupy yourself if you want to. Well done to Debi Turner and the ladies for getting this up and running. Recently we have seen the arrival of the much anticipated new homes in our Village—no matter how many times I witness this, I still find it fascinating to watch. It’s so exciting to have a few homes for sale because we know this creates activity here resulting in new residents. We have more homes on the way, so it won’t be long before there will be a flurry of comings and goings. With the change of Autumn to Winter, it’s also a good time to think about your gutters. Leaves dropping from trees and blowing in the wind, often means debris lands in the gutters—if the rain this Winter is anything like some of what we have already seen, clogged gutters may mean damage inside and outside your home—just a thought. Remember, stay safe on the roads this Winter, stay warm and dry and don’t forget, if you have a neighbour on their own—it doesn’t hurt to keep an eye out for them if they are struggling. It also means we’ll see an exodus of Pelican residents heading off to warmer climes, leaving us brave souls to weather the …. Weather!! (Sorry)

Till next time Cathy and the Team
