We have settled in well to our weekly Zoom sessions – never the same as meeting face to face, but what a great alternative in these current times. The Scottish Government ‘Connecting Scotland’ initiative has not only allowed us to ‘see’ each other every week, but has greatly increased group members’ IT skills and has encouraged a sense of pride and achievement – desperately needed in these extra-challenging times.
As well as catching-up with each other, since the beginning of the year we have enjoyed a poetry session with Koren Calder of the Scottish Book Trust – the first of 3 planned sessions – as well as a Chair Exercise Session, led by one of our lovely volunteers, Chris Roberts. Currently making arrangements for several other themed meetings, as well as being joined by some guest speakers. All to look forward to!
