Under COVID restrictions, and particularly as most of our members are considered vulnerable, we are unable to enjoy our usual weekly club meetings. Instead, we are concentrating our efforts on supporting those of our members who live alone in the community. We will re-open as soon as government restrictions allow, and we can ensure that meetings will be safe for our members.

A big thank you to Amanda, who is continuing to find ways forward and keeping everyone involved as far as possible.

During March we will begin to offer the “Let’s Get Digital” programme, which will support members to upskill digitally and stay safe on line.

We are currently looking for funding to hopefully begin a “Walk and Talk Poetry” project in the Spring. This will support members to re-engage with each other, in small groups, as we walk and talk poetry with each other, promoting mindfulness and connecting with friends we haven’t seen for a very long time.
