Our group of inspirational local carers have restarted their coffee group and would like to invite individuals and families in need of connection and good conversation to join them.

The Covid pandemic has been difficult for many people, especially those who have been shielding and may feel isolated. For those looking after a family member who cannot cope without their support, the experience has been incredibly challenging.

We understand there is also anxiety about coming out and meeting new people, which is why our coffee meet-ups are held safely outdoors in the fresh air.

The group is taking place monthly after successful face-to-face groups ran in April and May. In June, the session combined coffee, sunshine and gentle gardening in our beautiful park to lift people’s spirits (see photos below).

The next meeting date is 21st July 10-12pm. Everyone is welcome.

The focus of the July meeting as school holidays begin is on Mums who might like to connect with others. Children are welcome and our park provides a perfect environment for kids to let off steam.

For more information, contact our engagement lead Mandy on 07751 662497, email mandy.harrilal@bbbc.org.uk, or simply come and join us in the park between 10 and 12 on 21st July – see you then!
