Good morning all,
With the UK recording more than 50,000 new Covid cases for the sixth day in a row, it does appear that there will be some difficult weeks to come. Sadly it would appear that we are heading for another lockdown. Boris Johnson has hinted at this and has said that there is “no question the government will announce stricter measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus in due course”.
Please keep vigilant and be safe, and if there is anyway that we at Dragon Hall can help, please contact Amber or myself.

The British Museum
Apologies to everyone who requested a ticket to the forthcoming British Museum exhibition, this will not be going ahead.
In accordance with government advice, the British Museum is closed. A short curator’s introduction to the exhibition can be viewed in this YouTube video.
Thank you to everyone who has suggested a book or two to our members. Here are some suggestions so far:-
From Chris T:
Not a diet book by James Smith, Kindle price £3.99. As you might guess, my primary intention for this year is to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Sod 70 by Muir Gray, Kindle price is £6.36. it’s aimed at people in late middle age (60+) with some practical ideas for exercising body and mind.
From Derek P:
The Happiness Hypothesis: Putting Ancient Wisdom to the Test of Modern Science by Jonathan Haidt, The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right by Atul Gawande and Being Mortal: Illness, Medicine and What Matters in the End also by Atul Gawande
From Dominic P:
Stoner by John Williams (rather bleak, but absorbing), yet to be tackled Julian Barnes The Noise of Time (on the library book pile that has been going down slowly), Redhead by the Side of the Road by Anne Tyler (excellent)
Please keep your suggestions coming in, and a brief reason why you are suggesting it – thank you!
