For example, from a neighbour who sells online, a local crafts person, salons, the local florist, the bakers and local butchers, who select the produce knowing they can trace from field to plate. How about local cafés, restaurants and gift shops who may offer gift vouchers? Either way it would be nice to know our money goes to local businesses, who may well have had a very tough 18 months, that way we can help our neighbours have a worry free Christmas. Don’t forget if you need a plumber, an electrician or the vets, you will find a host of local services right here in your local business directory! On behalf of all the trades and services who have advertised throughout the year, I would like to wish all our readers a Peaceful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year. Untill next year best wishes

Advertorial

Keeping in Touch

As Coronavirus continues, it throws a massive light on the risks associated with loneliness and isolation in our older communities. Social activities such as lunch clubs and day centres have been closed for 18 months or more and the extra challenges of just going out of the home are such that it is often easier just to stay indoors. As the days start to draw in and the weather turns, the motivation to get out and about will lessen yet more. If you have neighbours who are at risk of being alone there is much you can do to support them. Even a smile and a hello as you pass them in the street can do wonders for someone’s day. Visits, even short ones are often appreciated far more than you might credit, especially visits from grand children who may now be off living their own lives. My own father-in-law really enjoys catching up with his grandchildren to see what they are doing in their lives now they are off in their own jobs, relationships etc. Technology can also play a big part in making communication easier. Smart phones and tablets are becoming an increasingly large part of everyone’s life, and it is never too late to learn to use one.

A career that makes a

difference

Lisa worked in retail over Christmas, she once had a role as a barista and spent some time as a nanny. All of that experience has led her to a rewarding role she feels comfortable with and thoroughly enjoys.
