I hope you’re doing well and keeping safe? Today marks another important step in the UK’s move out of lockdown with indoor gatherings, larger wedding receptions, domestic overnight stays and even hugging (!) being given the ‘green light’.
I had my second vaccine last Friday and, although I’m not fully protected yet, I’m feeling a lot more comfortable with the idea of being around more people. I hope those of you who have had your vaccines are feeling the same way too.
I’ve got lots to share with you this week, hope you enjoy!

Introducing our Camden High Street pop-up shop
A message from AgeUK Camden:
We are thrilled to be opening our summer pop-up shop at:
179 Camden High Street
Due to the popularity of our Leather Lane Boutique and hub, we decided that it’s only fair to open an extra space for you to shop, volunteer and socialise over the summer.
Our new Camden High Street pop-up will be officially opening on Saturday 15 May with the opening hours of Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm.
We need you to donate your quality, pre-loved items to the store.
Your donations will help us to continue our vital work at Age UK Camden, providing life-enhancing services for older people in Camden. There are lots of things you can donate. Perhaps you have some vinyl records that don’t get played anymore? Some leisurewear or shoes in good condition? Or even some quality art or coffee table books you’re happy to part with. Whatever you’re willing to donate, we’d love you to drop your items off at our store from Saturday 15 May 2021.
Our Leather Lane Boutique and hub will remain open for you to visit and shop throughout the summer and beyond:
