Elizabeth House, Cookham’s Day Centre for independent senior citizens will reopen its doors after lockdown to a phased programme of restriction easing. The first phase will see two groups of 8 members per day enjoying either a morning session (9.30 – 12:30 pm including lunch) or an afternoon session (1-4pm including lunch). Our Covid secure protocol will continue to be observed – temperature checking, one-way system, mask wearing, sanitising stations, regular hand washing and social distancing. It is expected that members will have been further protected by the vaccination programme. Staff and volunteer helpers will be tested regularly to minimise any transmission risk. As the country increasingly returns to normality, so will Elizabeth House’s arrangements.

Miriam Blazey, Elizabeth House’s manager said “members have been yearning to get back to enjoy the companionship and support that Elizabeth House provides“

Chris Harris, Chairman of the Trustees, commented “As we are hosting the most vulnerable members of our community, every precaution will continue to be taken to keep our members, staff and volunteers, safe.

VIP visit: The Metre Market were pleased to have been joined last week by our MP Theresa May; it is great to have support from our local government, and her presence created somewhat of a buzz at the Market!

Andra Rigby; Parish Administrator at Holy Trinity has sent these two lovely musical items. Click on image to access.


Sara and Vicky have produced some really lovely music on YouTube to brighten up these somewhat dismal days. 


I'm just starting to create some playlists (bit of a learning curve!) to make it more accessible, but there's a real variety on there from individual songs (like this week and last week) to short services with readings and prayers - They aren't all Bible readings either!


Here are the two musical offerings for this Sunday. They are very short and will surround the morning service, but are distinct and detached from it. Enjoy.


When I Needed a Neighbour Sung by the Men's Choir

Sunday 24th at 10.45

The Gospel of Peace Sung by the Choristers' Mums' Choir
