Coffee Morning Group

Molly, the chair of the coffee morning group and I have had regular updates during the lockdown. The members have also kept in close contact over the phone, and recently they have been meeting in small groups in the garden outside the community centre for a chat. It has been rather tough over the past months during the lockdown without their weekly catch-ups, over a ‘cuppa’. Quite a few have had only limited physical contact with their family members, due to the Covid restrictions; without a doubt, all this has generated a feeling of loneliness and isolation. We all know that loneliness can lead to depression, and depression to ill health. For many, this past year has taken its toll.

We are happy to announce that, owing to a successful vaccination programme, our collective isolation is coming to an end and our first coffee morning, following the easing of restrictions, will be on the 22 June. Meetings will then continue to take place every Tuesday from 10.30- 12.30pm at Roupell Park Community Centre.  Please note that masks will still need to be worn and social distancing maintained. New members are encouraged to join; a friendly chat and a warm welcome is guaranteed. For more information, and to register your attendance, please contact Eva Christmas on 07983 584 767.
