Over the last few months, due to funding from the National Heritage Lottery Fund, we’ve been able to provide the space to have virtual coffee breaks with individuals and groups of people. Setting up a virtual meeting, and providing space for us to catch up and check in with each other has been vital during these lockdown months. Things are still

Up in the air in terms of lockdown and the pandemic and when we can meet again in person, but judging by the feedback from participants this space in the day to just talk about life’s ups and downs has been necessary and vital.

One participant said, ‘Thanks for listening and being there. It gets lonely living alone and not getting out. But I look forward to seeing all your faces here. ‘

Moving forward, even when lockdown is no more, we hope we can continue to connect with each other in this safe abs secure way.
