“……the atmosphere was welcoming, warm and comfortable, and the carols were performed by the choir most admirably. And the festive buns were tasty too. All-in-all, the event nicely encapsulated the Christmas Spirit! ” Alistair

“Christmas can be a great time for catching up with family and friends, celebrating and having fun. It can also be a time of stress, money worries, family tension and loneliness. Many people feel pressured to have a ‘perfect’ time at Christmas, especially as we’re surrounded by adverts and social media telling us how wonderful everything is.
For people already dealing with mental health problems, the challenges of the festive period can sometimes make things feel worse” (MindWell website: 20.12.19)

“My daughter popped round to see if she was alright as knew she had not been well”
“I haven’t seen her for a while, I will pop up and see her this weekend”
