What are we doing during the COVID19 lockdown?
The current COVID19 lockdown has severely limited who we can see, what we can do and where we can go. It certainly has changed the way we live out each day. However, on a positive note, are you doing something during lockdown that you would like fellow parishioners to know about (gardening, oil painting, woodworking, etc)? It may be something that you are doing for the first time because you now have the time to do it! If you are interested, then send one unedited image of your activity, a brief summary of your activity, and your name, and it will be uploaded to this page. Send your image and commentary to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parishioners: Leslie, Paul, Diana & Tony. Leslie and Paul Wyatt with Diana and Tony enjoying a picnic at Thirlmere Lakes, on a very beautiful spring afternoon.
Parishioners: Don & John. Don & John are enjoying a tea break. They were cleaning up/cutting dead branches to remove the fire hazard in the next paddock. Thanks to both!
Parishioner: Sr Cathy. The pigeon on the wires from my front verandah to the road.
Parishioner: Don. Shhhhh! Didn’t someone say you can’t hug friends during lockdown? But this friend is a family member living in the front paddock suffering a mid-life crisis, having a 5.5metre girth at age 100-120 years old!
Parishioner: Tony & Fr Peter. Tony is tending the roses on the parish grounds so that we can enjoy their beauty when they bloom. Fr. Peter is looking forward to seeing everyone, as he misses his parishioners.
Parishioner: Cathy. This is a Facetime call with my daughter, Aimee. This is our way of staying connected, as I’m not seeing her due to COVID lockdown restrictions. As usual, my dog Duncan likes to be part of it!

Parishioner: Frank. I have always been a keen gardener but, because of lockdown restrictions, I am spending more time on gardening. Native trees such as eucalypts and grevilleas are a favourite of mine and these attract birds such as rainbow lorikeets. I have now taken up photographing them. A lot of patience is required as lorikeets are wary of humans, but with my camera and zoom lens I am usually able to get good close-ups from a reasonable distance without frightening them away. I am looking forward to photographing in local botanic gardens when lockdown ends!
Soup & Damper Night - Saturday 12 June, 2021
