ADDENDUM – Bother we are back into Level 3 Lockdown so all of the below events may change… meanwhile if you need a reminder about life in Level 3, click here.
This month is National Neighbourhood Support Random Acts of Kindness month. We are reminded that being kind does not have to cost anything. Even small things like smiles, friendly compliments, flowers from the garden or shared cookies, can make a difference to someone’s day. If you are aware of neighbours doing it tough please email me the details and I will be happy to deliver a food voucher, courtesy of Neighbourhood Support.
If you have some spare time and would like to learn new things, meet people and make a positive difference here are some weekly local community groups and events to consider.
