Perhaps tonight I won't be on my own?

One of these dark and lonely nights,

A car will stop by my house and switch off the lights,

Has someone really come to call?

Hurry, hurry, hurry, switch the light on in the hall,

Sudenly the room seems more bright

As someone I love comes into the light.

I thought I could cope with being alone,

Perhaps tonight I won't be on my own?

Season's Greetings to you all

Season's Greetings to you all

Think we got a mixed reaction to our entry into the Christmas Tree Festival this year – seems you either loved it or loathed it, but what was clear to everyone was you certainly couldn’t miss it!  The blue lights shone right across the hall and if you stopped to read the words on the treads of the ladder you would have seen ‘Relieving loneliness’ ‘One step at a time’.  That sums up what we are trying to do each and every day - we are looking for new ways to reach out and connect with the older people of Felixstowe and the surrounding villages; not an easy task but one we relish.

As one year ends and another begins we will try to build on the links we have, and will have, to encourage each person we meet to think about inviting someone they know to join them for tea/coffee at some point in the new year, then people will help people and this organic network has the potential to grow so that more and more people start to connect, or reconnect, into all that this town has to offer.

So until we blog again in 2016 - Season's Greetings.

Tree Festival

Tree Festival:

Well, here it is!  How to use a 6' ladder as a Christmas Tree - the footsteps going up the ladder say 'Relieving loneliness' 'One step at a time'  Simple, but what we try to do at Christmas time and throughout the year.  Our thanks to everyone who voted for us as the people's favourite - we came 3rd which is amazing considering not everyone understood what the tree represented!
