Thank you for online version of the Voice

June 04 2020

THANK you for the Wells Voice being online for May 2020.

I usually check the diary of events in the paper version and come to Wells to enjoy the experiences and pop into the local shops with my custom. So the Wells Voice and the Bristol Voice are read eagerly over a cup of hot drink and a diary to hand. Entering those simple dates, ensures that I keep mentally and physically active in participating in the yearly activities so enjoyed in the beautiful city of Wells.

The first point of call after getting off the bus is to The Bishop’s Palace Gardens. To stroll round in that serene place, sit on the swing, enjoy the sublime peace and quiet. To talk to others there and say ‘hello’ to the hard working gardeners and thank them for their work – and to watch the birds cavorting around.

Then, onwards to whatever other event is occurring and has called me again to Wells. We are all currently socially distancing, and I am so grateful that from my numerous visits, I have many photos of The Bishop’s Palace Gardens, some also of those beautiful red tulips in your May edition. (I am sad to have to miss that this year.)

A challenging time for all of us. Thank you for making it possible for me to enjoy a ‘virtual’ read of Wells Voice online... I will go and make a hot chocolate in a minute and review some of the photos that I have, to remind me of a very special place and people.
