Before Covid we meet up once a month, usually for tea, cake and a chat in an accessible venue. We all miss these opportunities to meet and for now we are meeting on zoom, but we know this is second best at most.
You can see how the project is working currently here
The purpose of these gatherings was to enable people to meet others in the project in a safe environment, and to extend their local social network.
Clients often come with their volunteer the first time but soon feel happy to come on their own, knowing that they will be welcomed. We provided accessible transport and we pay for a hot drink and cake for everyone.
“Thank you all for another wonderful gathering. I made some more friends and really enjoyed the lovely venue along with the tea and cakes.”
We have enjoyed visits from the Harborough Movie Makers, the Harborough Museum and Library, Kibworth Ladies choir, Leicestershire County Council, and had a great meeting with Harborough, Oadby and Wigston MP Neil O’Brien.
More reports of our meetings are in our Community Champions Newsletters.
The Community Gatherings are for members of the project and are not open to the public.
