Thursday 31st December 2020

Good afternoon all,

Happy New Year’s Eve!!

I do hope that your Christmas was a good one – thank you to all those members who shared with me their personal memories of the day, so glad that, despite the restrictions, many of you were able to celebrate.

What about today? Will YOU be waiting up to hear the chimes? Do something special? I will be Zooming most of the day, catching up with friends and family. Not going to wait until midnight – I am guessing that the internet will be EXTRA busy!

Thrive LDN

From Chris B:

Thrive LDN is a citywide movement to improve the mental health and wellbeing of all Londoners. It is supported by the Mayor of London and led by the London Health Board partners.

We know that many people who both live and work in London are feeling anxious about coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it might impact them, their loved ones and London’s businesses.

This means it’s never been more important for each of us to think and talk more about mental health and wellbeing. Thrive LDN is working with partners to help coordinate a collective response to the public mental health challenges which are developing in London.

Funny Side of Life

From Theresa K: who says:-

Now that our minds are still active, it’s good to maintain our contact/friendship. As years passed, some of us may be gone from the face of this earth, some may suffer from memory loss, therefore treasure whatever is the moment.

The past is gone, the future unknown. Live for the moment.
