依士靈頓華人協會吳灝軒主席聖誕賀詞 A Christmas Message from the Chair, Islington Chinese Association

Dear Members,

Although Christmas isn’t a traditional Chinese festival, many of us celebrate this festive occasion. Christmas is a time where we come together with our family and friends.

I want to use this opportunity to say a big heartfelt thank you to you for your continuing support to ICA this year. You and other ICA members are an integral part of our ICA family.  Without your support, there won’t be ICA. We remain firm with our commitment to support our members and the Chinese community going forward.

2020 has been a challenging year. Each of us have stories to tell that it has not been easy this year, whether it’s about losing our loved ones, a detrimental impact on our mental health, or disruption to your businesses.

Despite all the hardship, we should take stock and recognise our achievements so far. We should recognise our achievement in demonstrating our ability to adapt and be resilient in the most adverse situation. Many of us did not allow this pandemic to turn our lives into a complete halt. We have learnt new skills, new experiences and continue supporting each other through online social activities. I am grateful to ICA staff and volunteers for their efforts and perseverance.

2021 will definitely be a much better year. We can look to the future with hope and optimism. We can overcome any obstacles with this spirit of unity and support each other to adapt and be resilient.

ICA will continue to do more and help everyone to thrive in this situation. We will work towards making 2021 a fulfilling and meaningful year for our members and our community.

On behalf of our staff and Trustees, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Stay safe, and stay connected. We look forward to seeing you in 2021.

With the best wishes,

Chris

Chair, Islington Chinese Association

Stay at home – London moves into Tier 4 – please act now to protect your loved ones

The Government has announced Islington and all London boroughs will move into tough new Tier 4 restrictions tomorrow (Sunday 20 December) because of soaring cases of coronavirus, and risk of serious illness and death.

We must stay at home as much as possible to help stop the virus spreading. All non-essential shops, hair and beauty salons, indoor gyms and leisure facilities will close. There will be restrictions on travel, and people should not enter or leave Tier 4 areas.

We cannot join or form a Christmas bubble or meet other people indoors, including over the Christmas period, unless we live with them or they are part of our existing support bubble. Outdoors, we can meet one person from another household, in an open public space.

For full Tier 4: Stay at Home guidance see gov.uk

Cllr Richard Watts, leader of Islington Council, said: “Coronavirus is spreading fast within Islington and London, and the more the virus spreads, the more serious illness and death we will see in our communities. There are serious concerns about rising numbers of people in hospital and pressure on our NHS.

“The situation is very dangerous, and it’s right that the Prime Minister has listened to public health experts and leaders in London who have said more needed to be done to help save lives and protect our NHS.

“Today’s news is so desperately difficult for so many people who had hoped to spend Christmas with family and loved ones – but we face a public health emergency. We must all stay at home as much as possible. It’s vital we all do our bit and do everything we can to protect each other, stop the virus spreading and stop the risk of serious illness and death spreading in our communities.

“Alongside other leaders in London, I am calling for the Government to give the support that businesses in Islington desperately need to help them through an incredibly challenging time, at the end of a very difficult year.

“Islington is a very special community and we’re incredibly proud of how everyone who lives and works in the borough has pulled together and done their bit to keep Islington safe this year. If you’re told to isolate please do not leave your home. If you need help with your shopping, collecting medicines, or you have money worries, call the We are Islington helpline on 020 7527 8222, 7 days a week, 9am-5pm even over Christmas.”

We will keep http://www.islington.gov.uk/coronavirus up-to-date with latest information about the new restrictions and any changes to council services.

ICA Virtual Christmas Party will be held on Tuesday 22.12.2020 at 2pm. Please join Zoom meeting

GOOD-BYE from the CEO 

     My dear members, 

It is the time saying good-bye to you all! My last day acts as CEO will be the 15th December 2020. However, I will have two weeks annual leave before Ieaving. 

Thank you very much for your support for these sixteen months. I value these time with you all a lot! All those days filled in my memories, 

  • You laughed with me – There can’t be without you in all our festival events and activities. 
  • You worked with me – Together, we clean the Upper Hall. Together, we form the Interest Groups Forum.  
  • We felt sad together – We missed our belated member. We worked together for his memorial video and booklet. 
  • We were lonely and down – The UK Lockdown! However, I could meet you in our online activities. 

We went through this unprecedented time and turbulence moment together. 

I hope we will be braver for our future. Everything will become Normal soon! 

I will take a long vacation back to my home town to visit my father and relatives. 

Although I say Good-bye, I will still be around with you as an ICA member. 

All the best to you and your families. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 

Take care, 

Donna So, CEO 

(Dr Stephen NG MBE has been appointed as the Interim CEO (Voluntary) with immediate effect)
