December Newsletter

2021 has been a busy and at times strange year for us all. Groups have tried to restart activities, have experienced successes and disappointments and have diversified into new ways of doing things.

However something that has remained constant is the determination of volunteers to give back and to be a part of something. We would like to thank you all for your dedication to volunteering and your support to us through the year. We wish you all a peaceful and happy Christmas and New Year and look forward to working with you in 2022.

Tip of the month

Covid19 restrictions make it difficult for groups to meet in person but at a time when Christmas parties might normally be happening it’s important to stay connected. Why not plan an outdoor meet up or Christmas themed walk, a Christmas Jumper or Fancy Dress zoom. If your volunteers don’t get a chance to meet why not plan something for early next year when restrictions have eased.
