Our Storytime zooms have been a great success. These will now take place monthly on a Tuesday afternoon, and we are introducing a Musical Memories session also monthly on a Thursday afternoon.

Here are a couple of stories from the sessions:

Janice is a Compassionate Neighbour who joined the team following a bereavement. She has attended all of the sessions, and sent this email recently

“Just writing to say how much I enjoyed the recent weeks of storytelling and the opportunity to invite my friend Elspeth to share in it. Elspeth was feeling a bit low with lockdown and I was enjoying my Zoom meetings so much, that I thought it would be a lovely way to brighten her day. And it sure did! We both eagerly looked forward to it each week and were never disappointed. Please convey our sincere thanks to Jean for all that she shared with us. Such unbelievable recall and detail for a lady of her age. I have no doubt she must have been a wonderful teacher. It was a privilege to share time on zoom with you all. Looking forward to the 15th and 20th!!!!!

James is a day care patient who has attended every session and seems to really enjoy it. Last week there was a new man, Dave, who had been given the details by RVS. Colin immediately recognised Dave, and it turned out they had been to school together but hadn’t seen each other for 60+ years. We hope they will keep in touch to share old stories and have a few laughs.
