Measuring out the correct distancing

With covid measures modified, the Order’s members and Companions geared up to provide supper and company to homeless guests – with the first supper event on 10 September back at base, St James’s Spanish Place, since lockdown.  
There were greetings all round, with a delicious supper provided, together with a takeaway picnic breakfast, as volunteers and guests caught up on what covid has meant for so many.

PPE regulations continue to be strictly followed, with distancing carefully measured out.
